Tigers catcher Alex Avila has been shut down since being placed on the 7-day DL on Sunday. He’s going to be shut down a little while longer:
Alex Avila expected to meet with doctors at ballpark. Whenever he’s back, look for him to wear heavier mask with more padding, Leyland said.

The Tigers are going to wait to activate him until he wakes up clear of concussion symptoms.
