Maroth's off playoff roster, Shelton's probably on
DETROIT -- Jim Leyland told Mike Maroth today that he won't be on the playoff roster. No huge surprise, but still a difficult conversation. Also, it looks like Chris Shelton will be on the roster, and could even start against left-handers.
This really sucks for Maroth who went through some very tough times here in Detroit but it was the right decision imo. He wasn't very good during his rehab in Toledo and hasn't been very good since his return to the bigs. I'm pulling for a full recovery for Maroth but unfortunately this was the best decision for the team.
