|Alex Avila could miss a week of action |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(9/15/14) Tigers catcher Alex Avila could miss at least a week of action, manager Brad Ausmus told MLB.com on Monday. Avilla was pulled in the eighth inning on Sunday because of lightheadedness.
"If this was pre-Sept. 1, he would probably be on the 7-day disabled list, because you'd need another catcher," Ausmus said.

(9/14/14) Tigers catcher Alex Avila, who missed time with a concussion earlier this month, had to be removed in the eighth inning Sunday against the Indians because of lightheadedness.
"He took one off the mask earlier in the day, but at the time, he didn't show the reaction that is normally associated with someone that's been concussed," manager Brad Ausmus said. "He kind of went about his business. And it wasn't until he actually went to hit his last plate appearance that someone said to me that he didn't seem right on the bench."
Avila struck out on three pitches and, when questioned upon his return to the dugout, complained of a headache. He went 1 for 3 with a walk and two strikeouts in the contest.
Avila traveled with the team to Minnesota after the game, but Ausmus told mLive.com he likely wouldn't play Monday against the Twins.
|Alex Avila makes his return to the lineup |

(9/7/14) As expected, catcher Alex Avila was back in the Tigers' starting lineup for Sunday night's game against the Giants. He had not made a start since taking a foul tip off the mask last Tuesday, but he had passed his concussion tests on Saturday, and his return was anticipated for this game.

(9/6/14) Tigers catcher Alex Avila passed his concussion tests and hopes to return to the lineup Sunday, he told MLive.com Saturday.
Avila has not been in the lineup since he was hit in the head by a foul ball Tuesday, missing four games in a row.
|Alex Avila was one of the top catchers in Fantasy in 2011, when he broke out with a .295 batting average, 19 home runs and 82 RBI. Since then, he has battled injuries and decline at the plate, and 2013 was a particularly difficult season. Avila missed time with a concussion and a forearm injury, but in the 102 games he did play, he hit a mere .227. Avila's power and run production wasn't too bad, particularly for a catcher, as he clubbed 11 home runs and drove in 47 runs, but he hit only 14 doubles, and he struck out in more than one-third of his at-bats. He returns as the Tigers' primary catcher, so if he stays reasonably healthy, playing time won't be an issue. Given the numbers he has put up the last two years, though, Fantasy owners can't expect him to be more than a late-round option in two-catcher mixed leagues.
