With Austin Jackson on the DL, postseason poster-boy Avisail Garcia will be called back up to MLB. Detroit's bouncing baby slugger was slashing an ungodly .432/.447/.541 while biding his time in AAA Toledo. As long as his performance doesn't crater, he should get most of the starts in center for the next couple of weeks. After that... we'll wait and see.

Avisail Garcia will remain on the Tigers' postseason roster for the ALCS, at least. The rookie hasn't yet shown the power that was supposed to be his calling card, but even an empty .313 average for a player's first month in MLB is something to be proud of. He'll provide extra punch, likely from the bench, for the Tigers against the suddenly-hot Yankees, and if he even holds his own, he has to be a favorite for a full-time role with the team in 2013.

Looking for a little September magic to help them put away the fading White Sox, the Tigers today called up slugging prospect Avisail Garcia to make their lineup even more thunderful. Garcia enters the Bigs having only 55 games of AA experience, but his .299/.333/.455 minor league season earns him a cup of coffee, at least.
