LAKELAND, Fla. -- The Detroit Tigers agreed to terms Monday with seven players on contracts for the 2014 season.

Detroit announced agreements with right-handers Jose Ortega, Luke Putkonen and Evan Reed, left-handers Kyle Lobstein and Drew Smyly, infielder Nick Castellanos and outfielder Steven Moya. Smyly is expected to move into the rotation after an impressive 2013 showing in the bullpen. Castellanos has been considered one of the organization's top prospects and will likely play third base this year in the majors.

The Tigers now have 32 players on the club's 40-man roster under contract for 2014.
