Tigers' Rajai Davis out of lineup, Ian Kinsler leading off Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2015) Tigers center fielder Rajai Davis is out of the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with the Twins.

"He doesn't feel the tightness anymore," manager Brad Ausmus said, per Mlive.com. "It was tightness. He didn't pull or strain anything. But he felt it tighten up, so he was concerned if he tried to run hard something would give. So it was probably wise that he came out of the game, because he feels good [Monday]. We'll give him the day and just see how he's doing."

Davis left Sunday's game due to groin tightness, keeping him from reprising his normal role as leadoff man against southpaws. Instead, the Tigers will use second baseman Ian Kinsler in the leadoff role, with shortstop Jose Iglesias moving up to the second slot.

"I do think hitting leadoff's a little different," Ausmus said, "and Kinsler's done it many times before. That's the only reason."

It's the first time this season Kinsler has batted anything other than second, but he's no stranger to the leadoff spot, having made 745 of his 1,236 career starts atop the lineup. Iglesias, however, has batted eighth or ninth in each of his starts this season. He's made three career starts in the No. 2 slot, going 5 for 12 with one walk.

The Tigers are heavy road favorites (-155) in Minnesota Monday.
