The Detroit Tigers activated catcher Alex Avila from the 15-day disabled list after Monday's loss to Toronto.

Avila had been out with a left forearm contusion that he suffered when he was hit by a pitch.

Avila, 26, is hitting .222 with 14 home runs this season.

Catcher Bryan Holaday was sent to Triple-A Toledo to make room on the roster for Avila.
