Tigers' postseason roster revealed

Here's the document we've all been waiting for.

The Tigers released their postseason roster for the American League Division Series, and the only real surprise was carrying a backup catcher (Omir Santos) and all five starters, including both potential starters for Game 4, Brad Penny and Rick Porcello. Penny, if you'll recall, has more postseason experience than almost the rest of the Tigers pitching staff combined.

Here's the breakdown:

Justin Verlander, RHP
Doug Fister, RHP
Max Scherzer, RHP
Rick Porcello, RHP
Brad Penny, RHP
(one will be used out of the bullpen, most likely Penny)

Al Alburquerque, RHP
Joaquin Benoit, RHP
Phil Coke, LHP
Ryan Perry, RHP
Daniel Schlereth, LHP
Jose Valverde, RHP

Alex Avila, L
Victor Martinez, S
Omir Santos, R

Wilson Betemit, S
Miguel Cabrera, R
Brandon Inge, R
Jhonny Peralta, R
Ramon Santiago, S

Andy Dirks, L
Austin Jackson, R
Don Kelly, L
Magglio Ordonez, R
Ryan Raburn, R
Delmon Young, R
