Tigers' Tyler Collins batting sixth in season debut
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/19/15) Tigers outfielder Tyler Collins is serving as the designated hitter on Tuesday and batting sixth against the Brewers in his season debut.
Collins was called up to take the roster spot of designated hitter Victor Martinez earlier in the day, and he'll fill Martinez's role as DH in his first game of the season. He went 6 for 24 with one home run last season and has hit .248/.338/.301 with nine RBI and eight stolen bases in 113 at-bats with Triple-A Toledo.
"We needed a left-handed bat with [catcher Alex Avila] down as well as Victor," manager Brad Ausmus said to MLB.com. "He can DH. He's played part time at this level before, last year. He's got a little bit of experience there. He understands that sometimes he's going to sit for a few days and then play for a few days. That's why we chose Tyler."
