by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Tigers have declined to pick up their option on catcher Alex Avila, though they have until Nov. 20 to do so, per MLive.com.

Avila has lost points on his batting average in each of the last three seasons, falling to .218 this year. But he did remain relatively productive in 2014, hitting 11 home runs and driving in 47 while scoring 44 runs in 390 at-bats.

Report: Alex Avila not considering retirement due to head injuries
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Tigers catcher Alex Avila said Monday that he has had no second thoughts about continuing his career as a major-league catcher after dealing with multiple head injuries late in the season. MLive.com reports.

"No," he said. "I've had three mild concussions in my career. I had a CT scan and an MRI checking my brain and my neck and the arteries leading to it, and everything checks out normal and healthy. And talking with the neurologist that examined everything, I shouldn't have any concern. It's like any injury -- you have to let it heal 100 percent."

Avila also indicated that he was symptom free and would be able to take the field if the Tigers were still in contention. Barring a setback, he should be ready to go for spring training.
