Alex Avila (knee) began a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo on Friday, going 1-for-3 and catching for five innings.
He'll serve as the designated hitter in Saturday's game before getting back behind the dish on Sunday. He's likely to remain on his rehab assignment for a week or two to get his timing back, having been on the shelf since May 7. With James McCann excelling as the Tigers starting catcher, Avila will probably face a time share when he returns. Jun 27 - 8:58 AM
