Avila (head) is not in the lineup Monday against the Twins, MLive Media Group reports.
Avila took a ball off the mask Sunday against Kansas City and departed the game due to lightheadedness. As expected, he'll take a seat Monday, most likely as a precaution more than anything else. Bryan Holaday will get the start behind the plate and bat seventh against Minnesota starter Anthony Swarzak. Tigers' manager Brad Ausmus said Avila is a possibility to play Tuesday, but a decision likely won't come until closer to game time.
