Avila activated from DL, Holaday optioned to Toledo

Gerald Laird’s hamstrings are fine this morning after he cramped up last night, so the Tigers optioned Bryan Holaday to Triple-A Toledo to make room for Alex Avila’s return from the 15-day disabled list.

Interestingly, Holaday will not replace Rob Brantly, who was promoted from Double-A Erie to fill the catching duties when Holaday was called up and Omir Santos declined an assignment back to Toledo. Instead, Holaday and Brantly will share catching duties, giving the Mud Hens a platoon of talented young catchers.

So Zach Maggard will likely be the catcher busted back down to Lakeland or Erie?

James McCann is down in Erie, and is another bright catching prospect.

There are at least three catchers in Erie. One will be bumped back to Lakeland.
