Injured Davis part of Tigers' roster for ALDS
Oct. 02, 2014
BALTIMORE (AP) — Outfielder Rajai Davis has been placed on the Detroit Tigers' 25-man roster for their AL Division Series against the Baltimore Orioles.
Davis has been trying to bounce back from a pelvic strain he sustained Saturday night in a game against the Minnesota Twins. He did not play Sunday, and on Wednesday afternoon manager Brad Ausmus wasn't sure if Davis would be part of the roster.
But Ausmus put Davis on the roster at the deadline on Thursday morning. It is uncertain if Davis will start or play a reserve role in the opening game Thursday evening.
Davis hit .282 and stole 36 bases in the regular season.
Reserve infielder Hernan Perez was also included on the roster after being called up when rosters expanded in September.
