Tigers catcher Alex Avila was one of four Detroit players to homer in a 7-6 loss to the Mariners on Tuesday.

Tigers C Alex Avila claims he's ready to roll
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Tigers catcher Alex Avila is ready to be the Tigers catcher again. He has been on the disabled list since May 8 with a left knee injury, but he believes he's ready to return.

"I feel fine, I feel good," he said after catching back-to-back games for Triple-A Toledo. "My knee feels good. My legs feel good. I have no complaints. ... Being out for two months, you would expect some cobwebs."

Avila will return with a .200/.342/.317 slash line.
