WASHINGTON -- The Tigers made a few moves on Saturday before their exhibition game against the Nationals was cancelled by inclement weather.

Detroit purchased the contract of outfielder Tyler Collins from Double-A Erie, and placed outfielder Andy Dirks (back) on the 15-day disabled list.

Shortstop Jose Iglesias (shin) and pitcher Bruce Rondon (elbow) were put on the 60-day DL, thus finalizing the 25-man roster before Monday's season opener with Kansas City.

This season is going to be different from the American League Central-winning campaign of 2013. Brad Ausmus took over as manager in the offseason, and the Tigers made a bunch of moves.

"I think when you look around the locker room, you see the same core group of guys, and you also see some fresh new faces," said outfielder Austin Jackson. "The lineup got a little more athletic, [and] we added some speed. Just adding some key parts to the team, in general, I think gets guys motivated and wanting to get the season started."
