News: Davis won't be part of a traditional platoon, seeing some at-bats against right-handers, Chris Iott of MLive.com.
Impact: Davis actually had a higher OPS against righties in 2014 than potential platoon-mate Anthony Gose, .617 to .604. Of course, the Tigers acquired Gose for a reason that probably goes beyond riding the bench. Gose is just 24, so he'll still get a decent amount of at-bats.
Rotowire: Feb 2 / 2:03p ET
News: Davis will likely platoon with Anthony Gose in center field to begin the season.
Impact: It's possible that Davis will lead off against left-handed starters as well, but there's reason to believe that his playing time will dip from his levels a year ago (494 plate appearances). Historically, Davis has hit lefties very well (including a .939 OPS last season), and he's proven capable of make an impact with his speed even without full-time quantities of at-bats.
