White Sox's Alex Avila: Probably No. 2 to Navarro
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alex Avila , who looked to have a clear path to playing time after the Chicago White Sox did not tender a contract to Tyler Flowers, will likely serve as the team's No. 2 catcher in 2016 after the club signed Dioner Navarro.

Navarro's signing completed the team's offseason overhaul at the catching position. Navarro signed the bigger deal and has a longer track record of offensive success, so he probably jumps to the top of the depth chart, though the left-handed Avila could force a platoon of sorts. It may also shake out that certain White Sox pitchers prefer throwing to one catcher over the other, but those relationships will not materialize until spring training at the earliest.

White Sox's Alex Avila: Top catcher with Flowers out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alex Avila will rise to the top of the Chicago White Sox 's depth chart at catcher following the news that the team did not tender a contract to Tyler Flowers.

Flowers had been the team's starting catcher for the past few seasons, but apparently the team wanted to move in a different direction. At this point, it is not clear if Avila will remain the team's top option or if there is another move to be made.

White Sox's Alex Avila: Signed one-year deal with White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Avila signed a one-year, $2.5 million deal with the White Sox on Wednesday, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports.

The 28-year-old struggled mightily last season for Detroit, hitting just .191 with four home runs, 13 RBI and 66 strikeouts in 67 games. Despite the poor season, the White Sox will take a low-risk chance on Avila, and he figures to team with Tyler Flowers to form Chicago's catching tandem in 2016.

Tigers catcher Alex Avila hits first HR since coming off DL
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Tigers catcher Alex Avila was one of four Detroit players to homer in a 7-6 loss to the Mariners on Tuesday.

Avila, who spent nearly two months on the disabled list due to a knee injury, tied the game at 5 in the top of the fourth inning with a two-run homer off Taijuan Walker. It was his third home run and first since May 5.

Since returning from the disabled list last week, Avila is batting .250 (4 for 16) with one home run, two RBI, five runs, five walks and six strikeouts.

Alex Avila replaces James McCann behind plate for Tigers
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Tigers catcher James McCann is not in the starting lineup for Monday's game. McCann has started 49 games and five of the last seven. 

Replacing McCann behind the plate is Alex Avila, who started at first the last two games. Avila will get his 22nd start at catcher this season.
