Davis is out of the lineup Sunday against the Royals.

Davis drew the start alongside Anthony Gose in Saturday's matchup, but will take a seat with J.D. Martinez back in action Sunday. The speedy outfielder has collected just one hit in his last three games, but is getting on base at a strong .387 rate this season, and is 6-for-7 in steal attempts.

Davis is out of the lineup Friday against the Royals.

Davis returned to the lineup Wednesday after a couple days off due to a minor groin issue. However, both he and Anthony Gose continue to receive the starts in center field for the Tigers, and the situation remains relatively fluid.

Davis (groin) will return to the lineup Wednesday against the Twins.

Davis missed each of the past two games due to the groin issue, but will slot back into center field Wednesday against the Twins. He will likely continue to split time with Anthony Gose, but he remains on the larger side of that timeshare.

Davis (groin) remains out of the lineup Tuesday.

Davis will sit for a second straight day, but it's uncertain whether the groin issue is keeping him off the field Tuesday as Anthony Gose typically starts in center against right-handed pitching. While Davis suggested the issue is not serious, continue to consider Davis day-to-day until he returns to the starting lineup.

Davis (groin) is not in the starting lineup Monday, Tony Paul of the Detroit News reports.

While Davis has suggested that he doesn't believe the injury is serious, Anthony Gose will start against a left-handed pitcher Monday and bat ninth for the Tigers. For now, consider Davis day-to-day.

Davis indicated Monday he doesn't believe his groin issue is serious, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Davis exited Sunday's game against the Indians early because of the issue, but it appears it may not hold him out long. It remains to be seen whether or not he'll be in the lineup Monday, but if not, Anthony Gose would likely take Davis' spot in the order, and a report indicates Jose Iglesias may be the top candidate to serve as the leadoff hitter. However, Davis appears to be on track for a return in short order, so Iglesias spot atop the order would be temporary.

Davis was removed from Sunday's game against the Indians in the bottom of the eighth inning due to right groin tightness and is considered day-to-day, MLB.com's Jason Beck reports.

After delivering a single in his at-bat during the ninth, Davis immediately headed back to the dugout upon arriving at first base, suggesting that he might have hurt himself while running. The speedy outfielder had been sensational for the Tigers over the last two games, going 5-for-8 with six runs scored and three stolen bases while reaching base two additional times on a walk and hit by pitch. Davis was replaced by Anthony Gose on Sunday, who will take on an even larger portion of the center field duties if Davis' injury keeps him unavailable over the next few games.

Davis will remain in the lineup as the leadoff hitter Sunday against the Indians, MLB.com's Jason Beck reports.

The Tigers have typically employed a platoon of Davis and Anthony Gose in center field this season, but after Davis went an impressive 2-for-4 with a walk, three stolen bases, and three runs scored in Saturday's win over the Indians, he'll be granted another turn in the lineup against the right-handed Carlos Carrasco. While Davis could parlay Saturday's effort into a few additional starts if he's able to keep the production going Sunday, Gose -- who has slashed .333/.348/.511 thus far -- certainly remains salient in the conversation for regular duty in center field as well.

Davis tore up the basepaths Saturday, going 2-for-4 with a walk, three runs scored and three steals.

He's now hitting .297 (11-for-37) on the season with six steals in seven attempts. Davis has value in deeper leagues where his SBs are useful, but as long as he's stuck in a timeshare with Anthony Gose, his fantasy utility is capped.
