Report: Alex Avila not considering retirement due to head injuries
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(10/13/14) Tigers catcher Alex Avila said Monday that he has had no second thoughts about continuing his career as a major-league catcher after dealing with multiple head injuries late in the season. MLive.com reports.
"No," he said. "I've had three mild concussions in my career. I had a CT scan and an MRI checking my brain and my neck and the arteries leading to it, and everything checks out normal and healthy. And talking with the neurologist that examined everything, I shouldn't have any concern. It's like any injury -- you have to let it heal 100 percent."
Avila also indicated that he was symptom free and would be able to take the field if the Tigers were still in contention. Barring a setback, he should be ready to go for spring training.
