Tigers third catcher Bryan Holaday returned home to Texas to be with his wife for the birth of their child. That made Don Kelly the team's emergency catcher again, at least for a day or two.
Given some recent situations, Leyland was asked if he believed every hitter should be able to lay down a bunt if the situation calls for it. "The real answer should be yes, that a big leaguer should be able to lay down a bunt," Leyland said. "But I don't believe that."
Quintin Berry swiped second base in the fifth inning of Saturday's 6-4 win over the Twins for his 21st stolen base in as many attempts. If he isn't caught stealing in Detroit's final four games, he'll become just the third Major Leaguer since at least 1950 to steal 21 or more bases in a season without being caught all year, according to STATS.
