      Braves' Erick Aybar: Drives in run in Monday loss

      Aybar went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Monday's loss to the Mets. The struggling shortstop may finally be starting to come alive for the Braves. Aybar is hitting .304 in his last six games, but all of that work only brings his average up to .178 for the season. Since Aybar has hit worse than .270 just once since 2008, he should bring his average up significantly sooner rather than later.

      Aybar has continued to receive playing time at shortstop despite really struggling through the first three and a half weeks of the season. After not starting Monday, Aybar returned to the lineup on Tuesday. The 32-year-old is last in the league with a .336 OPS and owns the second-worst Defensive Runs Saved (-4) total among all eligible shortstops. Daniel Castro is the shortstop of the future in Atlanta, but he is currently starting at second base. Manager Fredi Gonzalez did tell Mark Bowman of MLB.com that although he will eventually flip the two fielders, he isn't ready to make that change.

      Braves' Erick Aybar: Off to slow start

      Aybar is 5-for-25 (.200) with a stolen base, RBI and two runs through the first six games of the season. The slow start is a bit unusual for Aybar, as he is a career .280 hitter in the first half, which includes a .272 lifetime batting average in April, but Atlanta has generated very little offense as a team. The Braves have averaged just 3.5 runs per game and currently own the worse run differential in the league. It's too early to say Aybar won't turn it around, but it could be a long summer for Atlanta.

      Angels' Erick Aybar posts three-hit effort in Game 2 of DH

      Angels shortstop Erick Aybar went 3 for 4 with a run scored in a 5-2 victory over the Twins on Saturday. Aybar has now hit safely in his last four games after an abysmal 7-for-47 start to September. The veteran shortstop is hitting .368 (7 for 19) over the span of his modest hitting streak, and may be regaining some of the success he enjoyed at the plate for the majority of the 2015 campaign prior to September. Aybar's power, always limited throughout his 10-year career, has been even more abbreviated this season, but he has scored 66 runs and has also posted double-digit steals for the third consecutive season.
