Tigers’ Avila Leaves Game After Concussion

The Detroit Tigers may be without the services of their catcher Alex Avila for a few games. Avila was hit in the head with a bat by Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz when Ortiz was following through on his swing. He left the game.

Here is the quote from Tigers’ manager Brad Ausmus

“Right now, we’re not really sure on the status,” Ausmus said. “They’re calling it a mild concussion, mild to the extent that they think he’ll be fine tomorrow. That being said, he won’t play tomorrow, regardless. But they do think he’s going to be fine tomorrow.”
