Alex Avila went 0-for-4 on Monday, dropping his spring average to .184.
Avila just doesn't hit singles these days, which is why it's curious that Tigers manager Brad Ausmus has penciled him into the seventh spot in between Yoenis Cespedes and Nick Castellanos. It's largely because Avila is a left-hander, but if Ausmus thinks Avila will outhit Castellanos against righties... well, that doesn't bode well for Castellanos. Mar 30 - 4:37 PM
