Tigers player preview: For Rajai Davis, success depends on the scope of his role

The platoon splits are what they are. Rajai Davis smoked southpaws in 2014 but posted his typical pedestrian numbers against righties. Will the Tigers play to his strengths in 2015 or expand his role into his trouble spots? "Speed is a great asset; but it's greater when it's combined with quickness -- and there's a big difference."-Ty Cobb Rajai Davis came to the Tigers prior to the 2014 campaign with the reputation of a guy who can fly on the basepaths, hit enough to help, and play modest defense. He delivered, for the most part. Davis saw nearly 500 plate appearances for a club on its way...

Rajai Davis works on his (golf) swing

LAKELAND, FLORIDA -- A lot goes on at spring training -- some of it baseball. But it's not just about getting your work in on the back fields. There's fun to be had, too, and that fun tends to follow Rajai Davis wherever he goes. Friday, a cool morning with wind blowing off Lake Parker onto the practice fields, Davis took a few minutes to show Bryan Holaday a thing or two about his swing -- golf swing, that is. From the look of it, Holaday can use all the help he can get. (Photos by Kurt. Duh)
