With the Oakland A's scheduled to open their American League Division Series against the Detroit Tigers on Saturday afternoon, the A's have announced their Division Series roster.

There are only two notable semi-surprises.

Brett Anderson, who didn't pitch for the A's until the middle of August this season after recovering from Tommy John Surgery, and then made only six starters before going on the shelf with another injury, is on the roster and figures to start Game 3 on Tuesday night, even though he hasn't pitched since the 19th of September.

Relief pitcher Pat Neshek, whose newborn son died Wednesday night -- just hours after the A's clinched the American League West title -- is also on the roster.

Here's the complete 25-man list ...

Pitchers: Brett Anderson, Grant Balfour, Travis Blackley, Jerry Blevins, Ryan Cook, Pedro Figueroa, Sean Doolittle, A.J. Griffin, Tommy Milone, Pat Neshek, Jarrod Parker, Evan Scribner.

Catchers: George Kottaras, Derek Norris.

Infielders: Chris Carter, Josh Donaldson, Stephen Drew, Brandon Moss, Adam Rosales, Cliff Pennington.

Outfielders: Coco Crisp, Jonny Gomes, Josh Reddick, Yoenis Cespedes, Seth Smith.
