Avila (hamstring) will miss an additional four weeks after suffering a setback during Wednesday's rehab assignment, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Avila suffered more damage to his injured hamstring Wednesday, causing him to leave the contest early. The catcher was expected to return in the coming days after being placed on the 15-day DL on July 5, but will likely be back around mid-August after this setback. Dioner Navarro has been filling in behind the plate in his lace, and will continue to get the bulk of time while Avila is recovering.
Avila (hamstring) left a rehab game Wednesday night early and is being evaluated again, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports. Assuming that it's a setback with the hamstring injury that put him on the DL in the first place, Avila will likely miss a few extra days at the bare minimum. Further details will likely come from the White Sox after the team returns home Thursday.
Avila (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day DL on Tuesday, MLB.com's Scott Merkin reports. He left Tuesday's game with a hamstring strain and now we know the injury is serious enough that he will need longer than just the All-Star break to get right. The White Sox's organizational catching depth is in rough shape, as Kevin Smith is on the DL at Triple-A. Dioner Navarro will likely get the bulk of the starts at catcher while Avila is out, and Omar Narvaez is the most likely candidate to get recalled from Triple-A when Chicago next needs a second catcher.
Avila left Tuesday's game with a right hamstring strain and will be re-evaluated Wednesday, the Chicago Sun-Times' Daryl Van Schouwen reports. He was replaced by Dioner Navarro in the fifth inning and the team should release more information about how long he will be sidelined after he is re-evaluated Wednesday. Navarro should handle the bulk of the workload while Avila is out, but Omar Narvaez could be recalled from Triple-A to also see some time behind the plate in the short term.
Avila is out of the lineup Monday against the Yankees, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Avila will rest following a string of three straight starts, the last of which came as a designated hitter. Dioner Navarro will handle duties behind the plate Monday, catching for starting pitcher James Shields.
