Ausmus addressing instant-replay questions with MLB

LAKELAND, Fla. -- Tigers officials were finally set to receive some clarity on the newly approved instant replay setup on Friday. Manager Brad Ausmus, bench coach Gene Lamont and defensive coordinator Matt Martin were scheduled to meet with Tony La Russa and Joe Torre from Major League Baseball to discuss the new setup.

The meeting in nearby Kissimmee included representatives from the Braves, Astros and Nationals.

"The staff and myself have spent the last few days hashing out questions that we have for them," Ausmus said. "But my gut says there'll be some minor changes when they finalize some things."

Ausmus said earlier in camp that Martin will be the point man on whether to challenge a call. He will not be in the dugout during games, but instead in a position to review video.
