Detroit Tigers C Alex Avila (concussion) has been cleared to play after suffering a mild concussion after colliding with 1B Prince Fielder Sunday, Sept. 16. Avila's headaches have gone away, and he was cleared Thursday, Sept. 20. "I'm good to go," Avila said with a smile. "(I feel) much better. Everything was better across the board. I just feel better mentally. I feel more normal. Everything's good, no more headaches, nothing like that. Jaw's going to be sore probably for a few more days, but a little pain's not going to hurt me."
