Tigers' Alex Avila: Benched vs. right-handed pitcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avila is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Royals.

Avila is normally a fixture in the starting nine when the Tigers face right-handed pitching, but he'll surprisingly hit the bench for the second game in a row, despite righty Ian Kennedy taking the hill for the Royals. Manager Brad Ausmus may just be looking to reward the Tigers' other catcher, James McCann, with another start while he remains on fire. McCann has a six-game hitting streak, with four of his nine hits during that time going for extra bases.

Tigers' Alex Avila: Sits against lefty Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avila is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Royals.

Avila recorded just his third hit since the All-Star break Monday night, and with southpaw Danny Duffy taking the hill for Kansas City, the backstop will head to the bench for a night off. James McCann will assume catching duties for the evening.

Tigers' Alex Avila: Drops to seventh in order
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avila will catch and bat seventh Monday against the Royals, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

The Tigers aren't resting any regulars in the series opener, so it appears that Avila's move from the No. 2 to No. 7 spot in the order could be more than a one-time arrangement. It's difficult to argue with manager Brad Ausmus' decision to switch things up, as Avila has accrued just two hits in his last 22 at-bats, while Alex Presley -- who will hit second Monday -- is coming off back-to-back three-hit games.

Tigers' Alex Avila: Receives day off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avila is out of the lineup Sunday against the Twins, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

The Twins are bringing the left-handed Adalberto Mejia to the hill, so Avila will bow out of the lineup for the second time in four games, opening up a start at catcher for James McCann. Third baseman Nick Castellanos will move into the two hole while Avila is on the bench.

Tigers' Alex Avila: Takes seat Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avila is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against Kansas City, Evan Woodbery of the MLive Media Group reports.

With left-hander Danny Duffy going up against the Tigers, Avila will head to the bench in favor of James McCann. Avila went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts during Wednesday's contest, and gets a rest for the fourth time in the past six games.
