Berry sees first action since Feb. 24


LAKELAND, Fla. -- Quintin Berry did not return to the Tigers' starting lineup on Sunday, but he did return to the game as a late-inning substitute when he replaced Austin Jackson in center field in the sixth inning. It marked his first game since Feb. 24, and his first effort in his attempt to try to hold onto a roster spot he owned for most of last season.

That effort will continue on Monday against the Phillies.

"Whether he starts or not, he will be in the game Monday," manager Jim Leyland said.

With Berry's return, the burgeoning list of injured Tigers a week ago has been erased.
