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.

Catchers: George Kottaras, Derek Norris.
