News: Holaday will compete with James McCann for the backup catcher spot during spring training, the Detroit News reports.
Impact: Considering the concussion woes of starter Alex Avila, being the second catcher for the Tigers may offer a path to substantial playing time at some point in 2015. Holaday is considered the underdog in the job battle after hitting .233/.266/.276 in 62 games last season.
