Cubs' Alex Avila: Swats home run in Friday win
Avila went 1-for-2 with a home run, two walks and two RBI in Friday's win over the Diamondbacks.
With Willson Contreras placed on the DL before the game and likely to miss 4-6 weeks with a hamstring strain, Avila is in line for regular playing time as the Cubs' catcher. Avila is slashing .270/.392/.487 and should be owned in most formats for at least as long as Contreras is out.
