Tigers unlikely to change roster for World Series

DETROIT -- The Tigers have until Wednesday morning to make any changes in their postseason roster, and they might not know their opponent until late Monday night. At this point, though, manager Jim Leyland expects they'll stick with the roster as is.

"As we speak right now, I don't think [there'll be any changes]," Leyland said, "but that's not to say that something could not come up that would make a change. I don't foresee it."

One potential change that team officials discussed Saturday, Leyland said, was whether to add another pitcher to its bullpen.

"I think, as we speak right now, we're going to stay with 11 pitchers," Leyland said. "I think that's the way it's going to be. And I foresee, at this point, no changes on the roster. But there's quite a bit of time left."
