Stewart: Alex Avila, Dioner Navarro could be fits for Diamondbacks
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart said Wednesday that Tigers catcher Alex Avila or Blue Jays catcher Dioner Navarro could be fits with the team in potential trade scenarios, the Arizona Republic reports.

The Diamondbacks moved on from Miguel Montero this week, sending the catcher to the Cubs, and Avila or Navarro could end up behind the plate as Montero's successor. The Blue Jays are likely willing to part ways with Navarro after signing Russell Martin earlier this offseason.

Tigers' Avila could lose some playing time to James McCann in 2015
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus has indicated catcher Alex Avila could see a lighter workload behind the plate in 2015, which means more work for rookie James McCann. Avila was behind the plate for 122 games in 2014.

"It's certainly open at this point," Ausmus said, per The Detroit News. "Clearly Alex has shown he has the ability to be an everyday catcher. He works well with the pitchers, they trust him. But I also think a guy like McCann has a very bright future. I like the way he catches."

Ausmus added Avila has no health limitations after enduring several concussions last season.

"A decision on who's No. 1 or No. 2 won't be made until spring training, or even if there is a No. 1 and a No. 2," Ausmus said. "Maybe there will be a split. I can't give you a full answer. All I can say is Alex is an established big-league catcher and I really like McCann. And (Bryan) Holaday did a really nice job as a backup last season. But a decision won't be made until March."

Report: C Alex Avila to remain starter for Tigers in 2015
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Tigers plan to maintain Alex Avila as their starting catcher next season despite his issues with concussions and declining production since his peak season of 2011, but they will likely allow Avila to walk in free agency after the year in favor of promising James McCann, per the Detroit News.

Avila finished 2014 with a meager stat line of .218/.327/.359. His 61 walks in 390 at-bats and continued strength behind the plate were two pluses.
