Cano, Granderson, Cabrera headline Taiwan trip
Robinson Cano and Curtis Granderson of the New York Yankees, Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers and Skip Schumaker of the St. Louis Cardinals headline the 19-man roster announced for Major League Baseball's Taiwan exhibition tour next month.
The roster released Friday also includes Pedro Sandoval of the San Francisco Giants and a rather lackluster pitching staff of Bill Bray, Ross Detwiler, Dillon Gee, Jeremy Guthrie, Mark Melancon and Jose Veras.
Also included are catchers Drew Butera and Jeff Mathis; infielders Erick Aybar, Michael Morse, Ryan Roberts and Danny Valencia; and outfielders Emilio Bonifacio and Logan Morrison.
The major leaguers will play five games from Nov. 1-6. Cabrera's participation is subject to Detroit's postseason, and other players might be added. Schumaker is missing the NL championship series with a strained right oblique.
