DETROIT (AP) - Rick Porcello and Drew Smyly are on the roster for the Detroit Tigers for their AL division series against Oakland.

The Tigers are carrying 11 pitchers and there was speculation Porcello could be left out since he's not part of the starting rotation for this series, but both he and Smyly can be options to pitch in long relief.

Reliever Brayan Villarreal ended up being the odd man out. He posted a 2.63 ERA in 50 appearances this year but did not pitch as well in the second half.

Outfielder Brennan Boesch also missed the cut after hitting .240 in 470 at-bats. Outfielders Don Kelly and Avisail Garcia are on the roster along with infielder Danny Worth.
