Diamondbacks' Alex Avila: Taking part in baseball activities
Avila (quadriceps) recently resumed performing baseball activities, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.
Gilbert's report doesn't outline what exactly Avila has been able to do since being shut down April 7 with a left quadriceps strain, but the backstop's ability to resume activity to any extent offers hope that he'll avoid a lengthy stint on the injured list. Avila's absence has opened up regular starts behind the plate for Carson Kelly after the Diamondbacks had previously opted for more of a timeshare at catcher.
