Tigers OF Rajai Davis leaves game with groin injury


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) 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.”

Ausmus: Rajai Davis will face lefties, Anthony Gose will face RHPs


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2015) Tigers outfielder Rajai Davis is slated to face the vast majority of shouthpaws and outfielder Anthony Gose will face the majority of right-handed pitchers to start the season, manager Brad Ausmus told reporters, per the Detroit Free Press on Wednesday.

"Raj is going to see probably the vast majority of the lefties," Ausmus said, per MLB.com. "Anthony's going to see the majority of the righties. And there's going to be times where Raj, whether it's a matchup situation or he just needs to play because we haven't seen a lefty, is also going to face righties. You probably could say the same thing about the catchers."

Davis slashed .304/.358/.446 with 15 homers and 87 RBI over 951 career at-bats against left-handed pitchers. Gose is a career .241 hitter with five home runs and 32 at-bats against right-handed hitters. He is hitting leadoff against the Twins on Wednesday.


Tigers' Ausmus chooses Davis over Gose for opener due to matchup


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2015) Tigers outfielder Rajai Davis drew the start in center field for Monday's season opener against the Twins over outfielder Anthony Gose. Manager Brad Ausmus said it was because of Twins starting pitcher Phil Hughes' reverse splits, per MLive.com.

Davis is batting .269 (7 for 29) with four doubles and four RBI in his career against Hughes.

"Rajai had a nice year for us, so part of me was glad it was reverse splits," Ausmus said, per the Detroit Free Press. "It gave me an excuse to play Raj on Opening Day."

Davis is expected to share playing time in center field with Gose this season.

"I'm not worried about that," Davis said. "The bottom line is, the best team is going to go out there on the field. I'm confident that our manager is going to put the best team out there and whatever that is, I guess we'll have to wait and see."

Rajai Davis to be unleashed following deadline


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Stuck in a role that saw him log inconsistent playing time, Rajai Davis didn't get talked about much for the first few months of that season. That should change moving forward, as the Tigers decision to trade Austin Jackson has seemingly opened up a full-time starting job for the speedy veteran in center field.

Jackson might end up stretched a bit thin as an everyday player, given his .250/.297/.333 triple-slash line this season against right-handed pitching. Still, Davis is one of the best base-stealers in baseball and has now been unleashed for an everyday role that should see him rack up steals, making him a very valuable commodity.

Davis was one of the big winners of the trade deadline, and should be worth an add in most mixed-league Fantasy formats at this point.
