Tigers manager Brad Ausmus revealed Saturday that Rajai Davis has been playing through a left middle finger injury since mid-May.
Davis said that the injury has led to him not placing his finger on the bat when he swings. The speedster is hitting just .179 (19-for-106) over the last two months, so it would stand to reason that the ailment is affecting him.
Ryan Hanigan (calf) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.
He's missed two straight starts with a tight calf, although it's not believed to be serious. Blake Swihart is catching in Hanigan's place again Sunday.
Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.
He's missed the entire weekend series versus the Braves due to fatigue in his left shoulder. Alejandro De Aza is in left field again in Ramirez's place.
David Ortiz (heel) is back in the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.
Ortiz didn't start Saturday due to tightness in his left heel, although he did double as a pinch-hitter. The 39-year-old sports a .265/.353/.510 batting line with 27 homers and 77 RBI this season.
CC Sabathia (knee) played catch on Saturday.
It's the second time he's done so since landing on the disabled list. Sabathia was sporting a large brace on his arthritic right knee when he threw and will have to wear it if he returns this season. There's no room for him in the Yankees' rotation at the moment, although the club talked about using a six-man rotation before Sabathia was injured.
