Tigers' Rajai Davis not in Game 3 lineup vs. Orioles

Sunday October 5th, 2014

Detroit Tigers outfielder Rajai Davis is out of Detroit's lineup for Sunday's ALDS Game 3 versus the Orioles, the team announced. 

The 33-year-old had the day off on Saturday after spraining a ligament in his hip area last weekend. He left Game 2 of the ALDS early due to a groin injury. 

Davis will be available off the bench on Sunday as a pinch-hitter. In his place, Don Kelly will start in centerfield.

Davis was named the Tigers' starting centerfielder when Austin Jackson was traded in the deal that brought David Price to Detroit. 

The Orioles currently lead the series 2-0. Sunday's pitching matchup will feature Baltimore's Bud Norris versus Price.
