Diamondbacks' Alex Avila: Out of lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avila is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Mets.

Avila hasn't been good at the plate this season but has slumped even harder in May and is in the midst of a 2-for-29 stretch with 18 strikeouts. John Ryan Murphy will take over behind the plate for Arizona on Saturday.

Diamondbacks' Alex Avila: Draws two walks Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avila went 0-for-2 with a strikeout and a pair of walks Wednesday in the Diamondbacks' 8-2 loss to the Brewers.

With a double-digit walk percentage in every season of his career since he reached the big leagues in 2009, Avila has long been lauded for his plate discipline. However, the backstop may be taking too patient of an approach, as he's swung at just 33.3 percent of the pitches he has seen this season, the fifth-lowest rate among all players in the majors with at least 80 plate appearances. Further compounding the problem, Avila hasn't been able to do much when he has bothered to lift the bat off his shoulders, as he's posted a career-worst 45.9 percent strikeout rate to depress his average to .125. Avila still looks like the Diamondbacks' No. 1 option behind the plate, but his leash has likely shortened in light of his slow start and the emergence of backup catcher John Ryan Murphy, who has been a surprise power source with a .231 ISO across 55 plate appearances.

Diamondbacks' Alex Avila: Day off Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avila is not in the lineup Monday against the Brewers.

The Diamondbacks have started a catcher in back-to-back games just once this season. Avila has done very little to demand more time, hitting just .130/.250/.217 through 80 plate appearances. John Ryan Murphy will get the nod Monday.

Diamondbacks' Alex Avila: Sits out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avila is not in the lineup Saturday against the Nationals.

The veteran backstop continues to struggle at the plate. He's hitting just .138/.263/.231 on the year, striking out 44.7 percent of the time. In his last 19 at-bats, he has just one hit and 11 strikeouts. John Ryan Murphy will get the start behind the plate in his absence.

Diamondbacks' Alex Avila: Stationed on bench Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avila is not in the lineup against the Nationals on Thursday.

Avila will take a seat for the series opener as Jeff Mathis gets a start behind the plate. Over 25 games this season, Avila is slashing .148/.278/.246 with two home runs and four RBI. Expect him back in the lineup Friday.
