Saturday’s lineups: Tigers vs. Royals

You know Alex Avila’s knee injury must be bad if he’s going on the disabled list instead of facing Jeremy Guthrie (10-for-32, three doubles, three homers, 13 RBIs).

I don’t recall ever seeing a knee surgery when they only removed a loose body.

Given the wear and tear Avila has taken the last few years, I’d be shocked if they didn’t find more.

“Alex is a tough kid,” manager Brad Ausmus said. “I really didn’t know anything about it until yesterday during the game.” Great
