Tigers OF Rajai Davis leaves game with groin injury
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/26/15) Tigers outfielder Rajai Davis left Sunday's game against the Reds with a tight right groin, the team announced.
Davis is confident the injury won't sideline him long.
“I don’t think it’s serious at all,” Davis said, via MLB.com. “I just think it’s sore, tight. I’ve been running around on it a lot the last couple of days. I guess I wasn’t used to that. If I get my body used to it, I think I’ll be all right.”
Davis is considered day-to-day. Before exiting the game, Davis had a great game from the plate. He went 3 for 4 and scored three runs. He's now hitting .341/.449/.488 for the season.
“It was tight, and I wasn’t running like I was capable of running,” Davis said of his groin. “Just wanted to take precautionary measures. I think the bigger picture is what I was looking at.”

Tigers' Rajai Davis leading off Tuesday vs. Pirates
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/14/15) Tigers center fielder Rajai Davis is in the starting lineup and leading off in his team's matchup with the Pirates Tuesday.
Davis has just one hit in eight at-bats this season, but he's 4 for 9 with three extra-base hits against Tuesday starter A.J. Burnett in his career. With Davis in the lineup, Anthony Gose is on the bench.
Designated hitter Victor Martinez remains out of the lineup with the Tigers playing in a National League park Tuesday. The Tigers are underdogs (+110) against the Pirates, per VegasInsider.com.
|2014 summary: Rajai Davis signed with the Tigers as a free agent before the 2014 season, and he took on a larger role with his new club than he had with the Blue Jays. Initially penciled in as the team's starting left fielder, Davis lost some playing time with the emergence of J.D. Martinez, but the July trade of Austin Jackson to the Mariners created an opportunity for him to play regularly in center field. Though Davis racked up his highest total of plate appearances in four seasons, he did less of what he does best -- steal bases -- than he had in awhile. Davis attempted 47 steals but only succeeded 36 times, while batting .282 and scoring 64 runs.|
Playing time status: The acquisition of Anthony Gose could push Davis back to left field, but at either position, he should be primed to receive regular playing time.
2015 outlook: Even with steady at-bats, Davis wouldn't offer enough beyond steals to be worth targeting in standard mixed points leagues. Though he likely won't get the benefit of regular playing time, Davis is still a viable late-rounder in 12-team mixed Rotisserie leagues.
