Canadians Daniel Pinero and Jacob Robson are among the 25 players invited to join the Detroit Tigers’ big league camp for Spring Training, bringing the total to 65 players in Lakeland, Fla.

So, what can we expect?

Pinero, 25, is a Toronto-native and was drafted out of the University of Virginia by the Tigers in the ninth round (265th overall) in 2016.  Making appearances for Team Canada at the 2017 World Baseball Classic and most recently at the Pan Am Games Qualifier in 2019, the Ontario Blue Jays alum is no stranger to big league matchups.

Windsor-native Robson, 25, was drafted in the eighth round of the 2016 MLB draft and playing for the Tigers would be nothing short of a dream come true. Like Pinero, the Windsor Selects and Ontario Blue Jays alum has slid under the radar for the majority of his minor league career, but has quietly emerged as an adaptable outfielder.
