The Detroit Tigers have added six players to the 40-man roster, protecting them from the Rule 5 Draft.
They are: right-handed pitchers Beau Burrows, Anthony Castro and Kyle Funkhouser; outfielders Daz Cameron and Derek Hill; and infielder Isaac Paredes.
Generally speaking, college players selected in 2016 or earlier and international or high school players signed in 2015 or earlier are eligible for next month’s Rule 5 Draft if not placed on the 40-man roster by Wednesday’s deadline.
The Tigers left unprotected a trio of young Latin pitchers — Wladimir Pinto, Elvin Rodriguez and Wilkel Hernandez — along with outfield prospects Jacob Robson and Jose Azocar.
All six of the protected players are on the cusp of the big leagues and could conceivably make their debut in 2020.
Welcome to the 40-man roster! These six #Tigers prospects are one step closer to the big leagues.
Following today’s moves, the 40-man roster now has 39 players.

Burrows, 23, was the Tigers first-round pick (22nd overall) in 2015, although he struggled in his Triple-A debut in 2019.
The inclusion of Castro, 24, was a mild surprise if only because he’s been eligible and gone unselected in each of the last two winters. But the Venezuela native is coming off a solid season at Double-A Erie and was selected for the Arizona Fall League.
Funkhouser, 25, was the Tigers’ fourth-round pick in 2016 out of Louisville. He struggled in Toledo in 2019, but will get another shot in 2020.
Cameron, 22, was one of three prospects acquired in the 2017 Justin Verlander trade with the Houston Astros and is still considered one of the organization’s top prospects after a so-so Toledo debut.
Hill, 23, was the Tigers’ first-round pick (23rd overall) in 2014. After his development stalled, he went unprotected and unselected last year. But he put together a solid year in Double-A Erie in 2019. Already a top defender, the Tigers are hoping his bat continues to develop.
Paredes, 20, was acquired from the Chicago Cubs in 2017 and has hit well at every level of the minor-league system.
The Tigers have the No. 1 pick in the Rule 5 Draft and kept one roster spot open to make a pick on Dec. 12.
The Tiger have made Rule 5 picks in each of the last three years, although only one player — outfielder Victor Reyes — is still in the organization.
Here are the 39 players currently on their 40-man roster:
Left-handed pitchers: Tyler Alexander, Matthew Boyd, Matt Hall, Daniel Norris, Gregory Soto.
Right-handed pitchers: Beau Burrows, Anthony Castro, Jose Cisnero, Marcus Diplan, Buck Farmer, Michael Fulmer, Kyle Funkhouser, Bryan Garcia, Joe Jimenez, David McKay, Franklin Perez, John Schreiber, Spencer Turnbull, Drew VerHagen, Jordan Zimmermann.
Catchers: Grayson Greiner, Jake Rogers.
Infielders: Sergio Alcantara, Miguel Cabrera, Jeimer Candelario, Harold Castro, Willi Castro, Brandon Dixon, Niko Goodrum, Dawel Lugo, Isaac Paredes, Ronny Rodriguez.
Outfielders: Daz Cameron, Travis Demeritte, Derek Hill, JaCoby Jones, Victor Reyes, Christin Stewart, Troy Stokes Jr.
