Alex Avila (concussion) has been cleared for all physical activity and will enter spring training without any restrictions.
The battered backstop suffered at least three concussions during the 2014 campaign. He'll attempt to use a hockey-style catcher's mask in 2015 in an effort to prevent further damage. With James McCann seemingly ready to make the leap to the big leagues, Avila could see his time behind the plate reduced this season. Tigers manager Brad Ausmus has said he's considered using Avila in the No. 2 spot in the batting order versus righties. Jan 24 - 8:35 AM
