Detroit Tigers may use Alex Avila at first base if Miguel Cabrera isn't ready before opening day

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus confirmed Saturday that he has spoke with catcher Alex Avila about the possibility of playing some first base this season. DETROIT -- There's no guarantee Miguel Cabrera will be ready by opening day. And there's no guarantee Alex Avila will be asked to play a game at first base. That hasn't stopped the Tigers from discussing both possibilities. Tigers manager Brad Ausmus confirmed Saturday that he has spoke with Avila about the possibility of playing some first base this season in the event Cabrera hasn't fully recovered from offseason...

Miguel Cabrera out of walking boot; status for start of spring training still not determined

Miguel Cabrera has given his walking boot the boot. But that doesnt mean hell be going through full physical workouts anytime soon. Cabrera posted a photo of himself without a walking boot on both Instagram and Twitter on Thursday after he was cleared to remove it by Dr. Robert Anderson, who performed the surgery on Cabreras right foot earlier...

How do you feel about the Tigers lineup?

Tigers fans have become accustomed to watching an extremely effective offense. Will the 2015 version meet those standards? In each of the past two seasons, the Tigers have ranked second in baseball in runs scored. They also ranked in the top two in each of the triple-slash stats (batting average, on-base percentage, and slugging percentage). Miguel Cabrera won the MVP in consecutive years in 2012 and 2013, and Victor Martinez covered for him by finishing as the runner-up in 2014. An argument could be made that Martinez was actually the best hitter in the league last season, but got...

AL Central news: Ned Yost extends his stay

Plus: Surgery may limit spring training activities for Alex Gordon and Miguel Cabrera Ned Yost is already the Grand Old Man of the AL Central, and the Royals guaranteed that he'll be around for at least two more years, as they agreed to a one-year extension that will take him through the 2016 season. The extension was inevitable -- take a team to the seventh game of the World Series and reap the rewards -- but it seemed like it could've/should've been at least a year longer. According to Yost, who is 60, he'll be happy to tackle his future two years from now: "Dayton’s got this year and...

Tigers injury updates: Miguel Cabrera not expected to be ready for spring training

Cabrera will be re-evaluated in mid-February, but Bruce Rondon and Jose Iglesias are making good progress. Don't panic, Tigers fans. Tigers head athletic trainer Kevin Rand updated the media on Miguel Cabrera's rehab progress yesterday, telling Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press that Cabrera is not expected to be ready for spring training. Cabrera began wearing a walking boot before Christmas, but will not be re-evaluated by doctors until mid-February. Rand stopped short of saying whether Cabrera will be in the lineup on Opening Day. Cabrera has been sidelined since the end of the...

Prediction: Alex Avila could see time at first base for Detroit Tigers if Miguel Cabrera isn't ready

Prediction: Alex Avila could see time at first base for Detroit Tigers if Miguel Cabrera isn't ready

It is clear that someone would share time at first with Victor Martinez if Cabrera is not ready to go. Its very possible that Avila could be that guy. Miguel Cabrera has played in 721 games at first base. Victor Martinez has played 187 games there. No one else on the 40-man roster for the Detroit Tigers has played even one game at first base at the major-league level. So, who's next at first? The best bet might be Alex Avila. The Tigers will need someone to share time at first base with Martinez should Cabrera not be ready when the season opens April 6. Avila...
