(3/6/14) Tigers outfielder Andy Dirks remains confident that his back procedure will only take 12 weeks to recover. He is expected to rest his back for three weeks after the surgery before starting therapy, MLB.com reports.
"It's like three weeks of nothing, let your body heal," Dirks said. "Then it'll be three weeks of physical therapy, then three to five weeks of some sort of baseball activities starting out."
|Andy Dirks out 12 weeks |

(3/4/14) Tigers outfielder Andy Dirks will be out 12 weeks after back surgery, according to mlive.com.
Dirks was in line for a starting spot. The team will attempt to replace Dirks with internal options. Last season, Dirks hit .256/.323/.363 in 438 at-bats last year.
|Andy Dirks seeking return to 2012 form |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(2/7/14) With memories fading of his crash into a wall last spring that resulted in a lingering knee injury he was forced to play with all year, Tigers outfielder Andy Dirks is talking optimistically about 2014.
Dirks lost playing time in the postseason to Don Kelly and Jhonny Peralta after his batting average dropped to an uncharacteristic .256 and his strikeouts rose to 84. Dirks batted .322 in 2012. His slugging percentage dropped from .487 to .363 last year.
He wants to make certain he is healthy before declaring himself ready for a bounce-back campaign. "You just wnat to make sure your body is 100 percent prepared," he told the Detroit Free Press. "You don't want to get all that early soreness and stuff."
|Andy Dirks avoids arbitration |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(1/17/14) Tigers outfielder Andy Dirks has avoided arbitration with the club.
Dirks is set to make $1.625 next year. He's coming off a season in which he hit .256/.323/.363 in 438 at-bats last season.
|Andy Dirks isn't your typical corner outfielder, but while he doesn't normally have tremendous home run power, in 2013 he didn't provide the doubles power and high batting average he has shown he is capable of either. In part because he is a strong defensive outfielder, the Tigers kept him in the meatier portion of a left field platoon last season, and he is expected to fill a similar role in 2014. Given his relatively limited playing time and poor 2013 showing, Fantasy owners may ignore Dirks on draft day, but owners in deeper leagues should be careful not to overlook him. Sore knees may have been responsible for his .256/.323/.363 slash line, but with better health, Dirks could toy with a .300 average with moderate power. Particularly in Rotisserie formats, Dirks is worth considering in the late rounds of deeper mixed and AL-only league drafts.
