Erick Aybar nothing but a singles hitter in July
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/29/14) An inability to hit anything but singles has limited the production of Angels second baseman Erick Aybar recently.
Aybar has hit safely in 17 of his last 21 games, but 19 of his 22 hits during that stretch have been singles. He has no triples or home runs in that period. He has just five runs scored and six RBI since July 6. Aybar owns a decent .281/.317/.403 stat line on the season. His slugging percentage has fallen 30 points in July, but he has been productive overall in 2014 with 50 runs scored and 51 RBI.
Erick Aybar returns as expected Tuesday

|(7/22/14) As expected, Erick Aybar is back in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Orioles, after recovering from a groin strain.
Aybar missed three games in a row as a result of the injury, but was available off the bench Monday and was expected to return Tuesday. He has a 10-game hitting streak active heading into Thursday's action.
Erick Aybar expects to return to lineup Tuesday

|(7/21/14) Angels shortstop Erick Aybar was out of the starting lineup for the third straight day Monday, but he feels good and is available to play in Monday's game if needed, MLB.com reports.
Aybar is expected to return to the starting lineup Tuesday after dealing with a sore right groin over the past few days. He owns a 10-game hitting streak that has boosted his line to .283/.320/.409 in 364 at-bats.
|After hitting .347 with an .868 OPS and 13 steals in 50 games following his return from a foot injury in 2012, Erick Aybar was drafted 11th among shortstops in Rotisserie leagues last season, which made that heel injury that sidelined him for three weeks early in 2013 not such a terrible thing. It gave his owners a chance to move on from him before he could destroy them. His 2013 performance was about as uninspiring as it gets for an everyday player. It's not like he disappointed on the level of Starlin Castro or Asdrubal Cabrera. His 33 doubles actually equaled a career high, and his .271 batting average and .683 OPS were within striking distance of his career averages of .277 and .703, making what he did not so out of character. It was just pathetically boring. What it showed is that if you can't trust him for 20-plus steals, like he delivered his previous three years, he doesn't have enough to fall back on. A success rate of 63.2 percent (on only 19 attempts) doesn't bode well for him entering his age-30 season. Even at a weak position, Aybar looks like just a desperation option in mixed leagues, right down there with Zack Cozart and Brandon Crawford.
