Marlins' Mike Aviles: Sluggish in limited opportunities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aviles finished the season with a batting average of .235 to go with one home run and eight RBI.

Aviles struggled to find playing time in 2017, appearing in only 36 games after being called up from Triple-A New Orleans in late July. In the last 30 games of the season, Aviles batted .161 in 31 at-bats, and he failed to record an extra-base hit. Based on this poor performance, it's unlikely that his role would change much heading into next season.

Marlins' Mike Aviles: Slugs pinch-hit homer Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aviles hit for Dustin McGowan in the seventh inning Friday and blasted a two-run homer in a 7-4 win over the Reds.

It was the veteran utility infielder's first big-league home run of the year, as he needed only seven games with Miami to match his total in 55 games this season with Triple-A New Orleans. Aviles is now slashing .313/.389/.500 with the Marlins as he sees semi-regular playing time with J.T. Riddle (shoulder) and Martin Prado (knee) both sidelined.

Marlins' Mike Aviles: Contract purchased from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aviles' contract was purchased from Triple-A New Orleans and he is starting at shortstop and hitting eighth Tuesday in Texas, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.

J.T. Riddle was placed on the 10-day DL with biceps tendinitis as a corresponding move, so Aviles figures to see time at shortstop while backup Miguel Rojas nurses a shoulder injury. Aviles, a 36-year-old veteran, was hitting .292/.326/.376 with one home run in 196 plate appearances at Triple-A.

Marlins' Mike Aviles: In line for promotion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Marlins are expected to select Aviles' contract from Triple-A New Orleans prior to Tuesday's game against the Rangers, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

With J.T. Riddle (shoulder) expected to land on the disabled list and Miguel Rojas (shoulder) day-to-day, the Marlins are getting dangerously low on depth in the middle infield, so Aviles will move back to the big leagues to provide some relief. Rojas is scheduled to visit a doctor Tuesday to determine the severity of the injury, but since it's a good possibility Rojas will be sidelined later in the evening, Aviles could enter the lineup right away. The veteran utility man is batting .292/.326/.376 over 196 plate appearances with New Orleans this season.

Marlins' Mike Aviles: Dumped from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Marlins designated Aviles for assignment Wednesday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Aviles was added to the 40-man roster last weekend largely as a result of his ability to play all over the diamond and in the outfield, but the 36-year-old didn't stick around with the Marlins for long after a younger, higher-upside utility option in Christian Colon became available via waivers. The Marlins are still hoping to stash Aviles at Triple-A New Orleans if he goes unclaimed, but the veteran will face a more difficult path to return to the big club now that he no longer occupies a 40-man spot.

Marlins' Mike Aviles: Heads to majors Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aviles had his contract purchased from Triple-A New Orleans on Friday.

Aviles hasn't been with the Marlins organization for very long, but with the big-league club in need of infield depth, the veteran utility man was just what the doctor ordered. He'll likely fill a reserve role upon his return to the big leagues, but his versatility and experience could land him a decent amount of playing time until Miami's regulars are back in commission.

Braves' Mike Aviles: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aviles was designated for assignment by the Braves on Wednesday.

Aviles was just traded to the Braves on Tuesday, but it appears that was for contractual reasons, as his tenure with the team did not even last a full day. Aviles figures to garner interest from a team or two looking for a versatile veteran to add to the roster.

Braves' Mike Aviles: Traded to Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aviles was traded to Atlanta on Tuesday.

The deal sent Mike Aviles and Kade Scivicque to the Braves while the Tigers acquired Erick Aybar. Aviles has had a very poor showing at the plate this season and currently owns a .210/.258/.269 line. Aviles has played all over the outfield and infield during the 2016 campaign, making it likely that he'll continue serving as a utility man on his new team.

Tigers' Mike Aviles: Barely above Mendoza as regular
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aviles is 8-for-38 (.211) with one double and no walks or RBI in regular starting duty since July 16

Aviles is simply a stop-gap in the outfield while J.D. Martinez (elbow) is out with injury. While Aviles is versatile and can play many positions, he has to start contributing at the dish at some point.

Tigers' Mike Aviles: Production continues to decline
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aviles continues to struggle in spot duty with the Tigers this season. His has a slash line of .209/.266/.270 and is 2-for-14 with one triple in his last seven games.

The 35-year-old utility infielder has seen his at-bats and production slowly erode over the past few seasons. Aviles has played at least five games at second, third and outfield, and has four starts at shortstop. Unfortunately, positional eligibility is about all Aviles brings to fantasy and that will keep him toiling on the wire for the rest of the season.

Tigers' Mike Aviles: Not starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aviles is not in the starting lineup Wednesday as the Tigers take on the Mariners.

Aviles has struggled this season for the Tigers, hitting only .226 with two extra-base hits. Over the last 30 days, he has shown signs of improvement, hitting .294 during that span. Aviles is a low-end utility player with minimal offensive upside at this point in his career.

Tigers' Mike Aviles: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aviles is out of the lineup Sunday against the White Sox.

The versatile Aviles had started at three different positions in the last three games, but with manager Brad Ausmus going with all of his regulars for Sunday's series finale, the 35-year-old will hit the bench. Though Aviles doesn't have a pathway to everyday at-bats, Justin Upton's ongoing struggles could still create the opportunity for Aviles to play two-to-four times per week.

Tigers' Mike Aviles: Will start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aviles is in the lineup and batting eighth for Thursday's game against the Indians.

Aviles will start for the first time since April 29 and is hitting just .200/.273/.200 with three runs and one RBI through nine games this season.

Tigers' Mike Aviles: Is in Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aviles is in the lineup and batting sixth for Friday's game against the Twins.

This is Aviles' first start since April 25 when he went 2-for-4 with one run and one RBI. The 35-year-old is struggling in a reserve role, going just 3-for-16 with no extra-base hits through seven games this season.

Tigers' Mike Aviles: Out of the lineup Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aviles is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Royals.

Aviles' versatility will keep him around, giving a variety of players days off here and now, but his playing time will come in fits and starts, barring an injury. He'll make way for Nick Castellanos at third base after going 0-for-4 Tuesday.

Tigers' Mike Aviles: Super utility's value limited at plate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aviles went 1-for-4 with a run scored in Saturday's game against the Yankees.

He filled in for Nick Castellanos at third base. Aviles can play second, third, shortstop and left field, and can also occasionally spot in at right or center. He won't hit for much power or average, and he doesn't walk enough to get his on-base up. But he did steal 14 bags in 344 at bats while with Cleveland in 2014. Nonetheless, Aviles' value is restricted to very deep formats, and even then you should pick your spots.

Tigers' Mike Aviles: Brings versatility to Tigers' bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aviles will be counted on to give the Tigers more versatility off the bench this season. He can play second, third and shortstop, plus all three outfield spots.

The right-handed hitter hit .242 against lefties and .219 against righties last season, so his value in most formats is sorely limited. But Aviles' super-utility skills will make him extremely valuable between the chalk lines.

Mike Aviles: To sign with Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aviles agreed to terms with the Tigers on Friday, ESPN's Buster Olney reports.

A true utility player, Aviles was going to be a tad more expensive than Jose Ramirez, so the Indians opted to let him go. His versatility, more than his ability at the plate, is the selling point, so he probably won't offer much fantasy value in 2016. Last year he slashed .231/.282/.317 with five home runs in 317 plate appearances with the Indians.

Indians 2B Mike Aviles collects two RBI in Friday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Indians 2B Mike Aviles went 2 for 5 with two runs and two RBI in Friday's win over the White Sox. Aviles has provided multi-hit efforts in three of his last five games, but he's appeared in only seven games in September thus far.

With Aviles likely glued to the pine the rest of the way with the Indians' infield at full health, he'll struggle to find value outside of daily formats.

Indians SS Mike Aviles dealing with sore wrist
by Sean D'Oliveira | CBS Sports Staff

Indians shortstop Mike Aviles has been bothered by a sore left wrist, which manager Terry Francona cited for his recent struggles, reports Cleveland.com.

"He's been dealing with it for two to three weeks and it's hurt his batting average," Francona said. "He didn't say anything, but I knew about it."

Aviles is hitting .225 in 213 at-bats this season, but is batting .119 with three RBI in his last 16 games (12 starts).

"He got an injection in the wrist about 10 days ago," Francona said. "You can see a little more life in his swing now."
