DETROIT -- The Tigers' only workout at Comerica Park before heading to Oakland had a pregame feel to it. The team took batting practice and infield work Tuesday, but did not do much else.

After contemplating a light workout Wednesday, the Tigers decided to make it exclusively a travel day to get out to the West Coast. They're scheduled to work out at the Coliseum in Oakland at 6 p.m. ET.

The Tigers did not plan anything beyond that. It's a longer layoff than past seasons before the American League Division Series, but manager Jim Leyland doesn't correlate it to what they faced before the World Series last October.

"We've got four days off. They've got four days off. We'll see how it plays out," Leyland said. "This is a little bit different in the sense that a couple other postseasons we were sitting around six, seven days, and the other team wasn't. In this particular case, the other team's sitting around, too."
