C Alex Avila is changing his catcher's mask after a foul tip put him on the seven-day concussion disabled list Aug. 11. "It doesn't look like he'll be using a hockey style mask," manager Jim Leyland said. "But he will be going to a heavier mask with a little more padding." Avila took a foul ball off his mask Aug. 8, causing a cut on his left ear, and came out one inning later with lightheadedness. He was cleared to play the next night in New York but was held out as a precaution.
