Quick hits

• An error that had been charged to Miguel Cabrera from Monday's game against the Yankees has been changed to a hit. Russell Martin, who hit the ground ball in the seventh inning, challenged the call through the Major League Baseball Players Association. Justin Verlander is now charged with nine hits over eight innings from that game.

• Tigers vice president and assistant general manager Al Avila was inducted into the Professional Baseball Scouts Hall of Fame on Saturday. Avila began his scouting career with the Marlins in 1998 under then-Marlins general manager Dave Dombrowski and oversaw scouting efforts internationally and at home. His signings included Cabrera as well as Luis Castillo, Edgar Renteria and Alex Gonzalez.
