Former Wolf Pack pitcher Eddie Bonine has made the Detroit Tigers 25-man roster after being told in January he was off the 40-man squad.

"When we took him off (in January), I called him, didn't get him, but left him a long message, telling him what we were doing," Tigers president and general manager Dave Dombrowski told the Detroit News. "I told him to stay positive, work hard, and that I've seen players who were taken off the roster come back to the big leagues and have a very good career."

"He's pitched very well this spring," Dombrowski said. "He throws harder out of the bullpen than he did starting and he bounces back well."
