(WXYZ) - Jhonny Peralta has made the Tigers roster for the American League Division Series.
Outfielder Matt Tuiasosopo has been left off.
Jim Leyland discussed his roster ahead of the team's series opener, meeting with the media in Oakland Thursday afternoon. He did not formally release the entire roster, but was asked questions about the key spots left up for grabs.
Peralta will not start in left field, as Leyland is going with Andy Dirks instead. The Athletics are throwing Bartolo Colon in Game 1.
Infielder Hernan Perez is on the roster, according to Leyland.
