Advice: Avila is sitting out Friday for the 10th time in 17 games this month due to post-concussion issues, and it sounds like, if anything, his symptoms are getting worse. With just over a week left in the season, he might not make it back. James McCann is getting the start behind the dish Friday, and he'll share time with Bryan Holaday while Avila is out.

Advice: Avila has dealt with post-concussion issues for a good chunk of September, starting just nine of a possible 16 games. He'll miss the first game of the huge three-game set against the Royals and it's not clear when he'll return to action. James McCann is behind the dish Friday.

Advice: Avila hasn't played since taking a foul tip off his mask on Sunday. He has a history of concussions, so the Tigers are treating the situation carefully. Bryan Holaday will start at catcher against the Twins.

Advice: Avila took a foul tip off his mask on Sunday, so he was held out Monday and Bryan Holaday will get another start behind the plate Tuesday versus the Twins. Avila has a history of concussions, so the Tigers are going to play it safe with him down the stretch.

Advice: Avila left Sunday's game with lightheadedness after taking a foul tip off the mark. The Tigers aren't going to take any chances, given his history. Bryan Holaday will start behind the plate.

Advice: Avila took yet another foul tip off his mask in Sunday's contest. While he didn't display concussion-like symptoms, the Tigers opted to play things cautiously given his history. He is likely to receive an off-day on Monday as well.

Advice: Detroit was trailing 4-3 when Avila took Bryan Shaw deep in the bottom of the eighth inning. It was his only hit of the night, but it helped keep the Tigers at the top of the American League Central standings (by a half-game over the Royals). Avila is batting .222/.329/.371 with 11 home runs and 47 RBI in 117 games this season.Sun, Sep 14 Rotoworld
