NEW YORK — The Detroit Tigers have put all five starters on the roster for their playoff series against the New York Yankees.

The Tigers released the roster hours before Friday night’s Game 1 of the American League Division Series in New York.

Manager Jim Leyland has already said Justin Verlander, Doug Fister and Max Scherzer are his first three starters against the Yankees. The roster also includes Rick Porcello and Brad Penny instead of an additional reliever.

The Tigers also have catcher Omir Santos on the roster to back up Alex Avila and Victor Martinez.
