Found June 18, 2013 on FF Locker Room:
The Detroit Tigers have had to place catcher Alex Avila on the 15-day disabled list due to a deep contusion of his left forearm after being hit by a pitch over the weekend. Bryan Holaday was recalled from Triple-A Toledo to take Avila’s spot on the active roster, although it will be Brayan Pena who should get most of the playing time. There is no reason to believe that Avila will need more than the standard 15 days to recover. In other moves, the Tigers have recalled outfielder Avisail Garcia from Toledo as Anibal Sanchez‘s replacement on the active roster. Look for him to get most of his playing time coming off the bench as a defensive replacement and occasional start. Also right-handed reliever Corey Knebel, Detroit’s competitive balance pick, has been signed and will receive a $1,433,400   The post Detroit Tigers Place C Alex Avila On Disabled List, Other Moves appeared first on FFLockerRoom | Fantasy Sports Advice | Sports News | Sports Talk |.

DL Stint A Blessing In Disguise For Alex Avila

DETROIT, Michigan — Alex Avila has taken a beating off the field by fans and the media this year, mostly due to his slow start and plummeting batting average.

Talkin’ Tigers Week in Review: A Healthy Austin Jackson is Key to Detroit’s Offensive Success

In the recent monthlong absence of center fielder and leadoff man Austin Jackson, the Detroit Tigers’ offense didn’t struggle so much as feel just a tiny bit off. With Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder thumping, Torii Hunter remaining consistent and Victor Martinez beginning to come around, Detroit didn’t lose much from a run production standpoint minus Jackson, but the Tigers...

Scherzer a perfect 10-0

Detroit -- When you have to go back 104 years to figure out the last time someone did something in a Tigers uniform, you know it's a special accomplishment. Max Scherzer has been incredibly special on a consistent basis this season and Monday night against the hot-hitting Baltimore Orioles was no different. Chris Davis' solo home run leading off the second inning was the...

Game 2013.70: Orioles at Tigers

blah. That’s my response to last night’s game. So blah that we’ll skip the regular format, and get a new fresh post up ASAP. Yes, JV looks off, but as I discussed before, he’s actually been pretty good. Well, last night was bad, but I’m not worried. I have faith in Ricky P to pitch us to victory. Four straight quality starts with a 1.33 ERA and .70 (not a typo) WHIP during...

First Pitch: Sanchez, Avila on DL

By DAVE HOGGFOXSPORTSNEWS.COM Alex Avila gets hit with a lot of baseballs, so he knew right away Sunday that this one was bad. The Tigers catcher had just been hit on the left forearm by a fastball, and crumpled to the ground in pain. Of course, that seems to happen at least once or twice a game, usually on foul tips, but this time, he didn't bounce back up. He ended leaving...

Manny Machado Really Is The New Brooks Robinson Or Something

The O’s beat Justin Verlander and the Tigers yesterday, continuing strong play of late to give them the AL’s third-best record. Manny Machado chipped in with his league-leading 32nd double and “two sparkling plays at third base.” Neither of those are new for Machado, who’s on pace to break baseball’s season record for doubles and who draws natural comparisons to Baltimore...

Detroit Tigers Game 70 Grades: Not Much Positive Comes From Ugly Series Loss to Orioles

For the second game in a row, the Detroit Tigers failed to score with runners in scoring position, leaving 10 on base. From a pitching standpoint, everything went wrong as well with 13 earned runs. Neither piece of news was good for the scoreboard, which saw the Tigers fall in ugly fashion to the Baltimore Orioles 13-3. The grades aren’t high for many this afternoon, and after...

Max Scherzer Takes Control

Max Scherzer has been nearly unhittable this season for Detroit. (Photo credit) As baseball fans, we love the movie Major League for more than it’s comedic value. It has a strong sense of authenticity, especially on it’s representation of the growth of the young gunslinger, Rick “Wild Thing” Vaughn. We have seen a great deal of young pitchers who can break in a catcher...

Someone must explain to Jose Valverde that Ratios are like Trust

As in it takes an entire lifetime to build the ratios; an entire fantasy season. It takes only an inning to destroy them. My WHIP, my ERA, and the rest of my ratios will never be the same. I feel like my virginity was taken from me today, and now I’m about to have twins.

Scherzer stays perfect, now 10-0
