Tigers' Rajai Davis gets the start over Anthony Gose vs. Tyler Lyons
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/16/15) Tigers center fielder Rajai Davis will get the start at the leadoff spot in place of Anthony Gose against Cardinals left-hander Tyler Lyons on Saturday.

Tigers OF Rajai Davis collects three hits on Thursday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/14/15) Tigers outfielder Rajai Davis broke out of a slump on Thursday against the Twins. Davis, who had been hitless over his last eight games, went 3 for 5 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in the 13-1 victory. Davis is now batting .282 on the season.
Davis has struggled to find consistent playing time as he and Anthony Gose have been platooning in center field for most of the year. Davis was in right field on Thursday, however, with J.D. Martinez getting a start as the designated hitter.
|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.
