UPDATE: Just, like, well, never mind:

 

9:44 AM: Everything is going the Tigers’ way right now. Almost everything:

This after Avila took a ball off the mask in last night’s game. He’s been sent back to Detroit and will not be flying with the Tigers to New York.

Avila has had a tough year, but he has experienced a decided uptick at the plate since returning to the DL. For now Tigers catcher is Bryan Pena’s job.
