LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Detroit Tigers have kept their clubhouse closed longer than usual before the opener of a two-game interleague series with the Los Angeles Dodgers to deal internally with the sexual assault complaint against reliever Evan Reed.
New manager Brad Ausmus addressed the issue Tuesday during his interview session with reporters, one day after the club issued a statement saying the organization is aware of the ''very serious allegation'' made against Reed. The team said the allegation is ''concerning'' and it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time.
