|Rajai Davis swipes two bases Friday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(4/12/14) Tigers outfielder Rajai Davis went 1 for 4 with two stolen bases in his team's 6-0 loss to the Padres Friday.
Davis has spent the last three games batting leadoff for the Tigers, and he has at least one steal in four straight games as well as at least one hit in five straight games. He's hit .286/.333/.429 in 21 at-bats, and he owns a share of the stolen-base lead in the American League with five.
|Tigers unveil opening day lineup |

(3/30/14) Tigers manager Brad Ausmus announced his opening day lineup for Monday's game against the Royals. Second baseman Ian Kinsler will hit leadoff and be followed by right fielder Torii Hunter, first baseman Miguel Cabrera, DH Victor Martinez, center fielder Austin Jackson, catcher Alex Avila, third baseman Nick Castellanos, shortstop Alex Gonzalez and left field Rajai Davis.
Jackson has primarily hit leadoff in his career, but after the spring he put together, Ausmus made the decision to hit him in the heart of the order. Jackson hit .429 (24 for 56) with two triples, two home runs, five doubles, 14 RBI and 17 runs in 18 spring games.
"The way Austin Jackson hit this spring, he was the best option to bat fifth," Ausmus said.
|Rajai Davis returns Tuesday |

(3/25/14) Tigers outfielder Rajai Davis has returned to the starting lineup Tuesday, according to mlive.com.
Davis has missed over a week due to a hamstring injury. He will leadoff and play left field against the Braves. Davis hit .260/.312/.375 in 331 at-bats last year.
|Rajai Davis due back Monday |

(3/23/14) Tigers outfielder Rajai Davis (hamstring) is expected to return to the spring lineup Monday against the Pirates. He has been sidelined since Monday because of a sore hamstring.
|Rajai Davis adds running to workout, nearing return |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(3/22/14) Tigers outfielder Rajai Davis added running to his workout on Saturday after going through agility drills on Friday. He is expected to return to the lineup in the next few days, MLB.com reports.
Davis has been sidelined since March 14 due to a sore hamstring. He is hitting .387/.457/.484 over 31 Grapefruit League at bats.
|Rajai Davis stole 45 bases in 2013, the fourth time he accomplished the feat in the last five years. This is made even more impressive when coupled with the fact that Davis has gotten 500 at-bats just once in that span. The 33-year-old outfielder has fallen into a familiar pattern lately -- enter the season as a reserve, find his way into regular playing time, steal 40-plus bases, repeat. Davis is a cheap source of steals every year, and AL-only owners should consider spending a dollar or late-round pick on him, as he's proven to be a speed asset for five straight seasons. Andy Dirks' back surgery could be Davis' golden opportunity in 2014. Already, he's worth drafting late in Rotisserie leagues because of his steals potential, and if he secures everyday at-bats at some point, he could factor in Head-to-Head leagues as well.
