Tigers catcher Alex Avila strengthening knee in rehab stint

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/18/15) Tigers catcher Alex Avila is beginning his rehab of his injured knee by working on strength drills, according to MLB.com.

Avila, who is currently on the 15-day DL with the knee injury, was diagnosed with a loose body in the knee. Avila doesn't have a timetable to return yet, but hopes to know more about the injury later in the week.

Tigers' Alex Avila (knee) will not undergo surgery

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/13/15) Tigers catcher Alex Avila will not have surgery on his injured left knee, MLive.com reports.

Avila was placed on the disabled list last weekend due to a loose body in his left knee, and the catcher sought multiple opinions before deciding to pass on the surgical procedure. He will rest and rehab in an attempt to return later this season.

"I took the enhanced MRI and doctors basically came up with the plan to avoid surgery," Avila said. "It wasn't something that I was trying to find a doctor that was going to tell me not to have surgery, it was kind of a collaborative thing to find out the best course of action."

Avila has hit .200/.342/.317 with two home runs and eight RBI in 60 at-bats.

Tigers' Alex Avila seeking second opinion on knee before surgery

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/12/15) Tigers catcher Alex Avila is getting a second opinion on the injured left knee that landed him on the 15-day disabled list, per MLB.com

Avila will meet with Dr. Kyle Anderson on Wednesday before making a decision on surgery. 

Tigers place C Alex Avila on DL, recall C Bryan Holaday

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/9/15) The Tigers placed catcher Alex Avila on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, retroactive to May 7, due to a loose body in his left knee, the team announced.

Avila was scratched from Friday's lineup but was said to be dealing with a forearm contusion. He has hit .200/.342/.317 with two home runs and eight RBI while serving as the team's primary catcher against right-handed pitchers.

Avila and the Tigers will not decide on a course of action until getting a second opinion on his MRI, but he appears headed for athroscopic knee surgery, which could keep him out through the All-Star break, MLive.com reports.

"We don't know any type of timetable really," Avila said. "We're trying to basically figure out the course of action right now. But my expectation and my hope would be to be back and ready to go, good as new, for the second half. That would be my hope and I think that's a pretty realistic possibility."

The Tigers will recall catcher Bryan Holaday before Saturday's game to replace Avila on the active roster. He has hit .230/.278/.328 with one home run and nine RBI in 61 at-bats with Triple-A Toledo.

Unlike Avila, Holaday bats right-handed, as does catcher James McCann, who could be in for regular playing time against righties with Avila sidelined.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Avila suffered a right forearm contusion in the eighth inning of Thursday's game, which will keep him out of the lineup, the team announced
