Catcher Alex Avila of the Detroit Tigers had to leave Game 5 of the American League Championship Series against the Red Sox on Thursday. Avila sprained his left knee, causing the team to pull him out.

However, he still sounded confident that he would be able to play on their next game on Saturday in Boston. Avila said, ''I should be fine. I tried to stay out there, but I just didn't have any mobility back there. It was hurting pretty good, so we decided to get me out and see how it feels in a couple days.'' Detroit succumbed to the Red Sox 4-3 in Thursday's game.

In the Forbes annual report of major league baseball's 30 franchises released for 2013, the Detroit Tigers ranked 13th on the list. This represented an increase of 35% over their ranking the year before. The Tigers were reportedly valued at USD 643 million. The team posted revenues of USD 238 million but posted a net operating loss on paper of USD 400,000.
