Diamondbacks' Alex Avila: Signs deal with Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avila agreed to a deal with the Diamondbacks on Tuesday night, Jon Heyman of FanRagSports.com reports.

While the specific details regarding the length and value of Avila's deal have yet to be revealed, it appears the 31-year-old is headed to Arizona. Avila had a solid season in 2017, as he slashed .264/.387/.447 with 14 home runs over 112 games. Although the Diamondbacks already have Jeff Mathis and Chris Herrmann as options behind the dish, neither had as good of a season as Avila in terms of offensive production. Avila has played in more than 124 games just once in his career (141 games in 2011), so he'll likely share time with Herrmann or Mathis over the course of the upcoming season. However, a solid showing during spring training could cement his status as Arizona's primary option.

Cubs' Alex Avila: Drives in only run Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avila went 1-for-4 with a triple and an RBI in Wednesday's 1-0 win over the Pirates.

Avila came through in the top of the ninth inning with a line drive down the right field line to deliver the only run of the game. The 30-year-old isn't known for his wheels, and this was his first triple of the season. In fact, it was his first triple since 2013.

Cubs' Alex Avila: Out again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avila is out of the lineup Sunday against the Braves.

It's no surprise that Avila is sitting out with a lefty (Max Fried) starting for the opposition, but the catcher has been losing out on starts of late against right-handed pitching too, as he went unused against Braves righty Lucas Sims a day earlier. Avila is reaching base at an excellent .370 clip since being acquired by the Cubs prior to the trade deadline, but August waiver pickup Rene Rivera has been even better, slashing .350/.435/.550 since joining the team. Until Willson Contreras (hamstring) returns from the disabled list, it appears Rivera may handle the bulk of the catching duties, at least while he sports a hot bat.
