|(5/21/15) Indians third baseman Mike Aviles went 4 for 5 with a solo home run in his team's 5-2 win over the White Sox on Thursday.
Aviles smacked his third home run of the season as part of a four-run first inning for the Indians to help lead the team to a win. The four-hit game ups Aviles' line to .323/.384/.508 with three home runs and six RBI in 65 at-bats.
Indians activate Mike Aviles, option Austin Adams
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/18/15) The Indians activated infielder Mike Aviles from the restricted list on Monday and optioned pitcher Austin Adams to Triple-A Columbus, the team announced.
Aviles was placed on the family medical emergency list last week. He's playing third base on Monday and batting sixth against lefty Chris Sale and the White Sox. Aviles, who has hit .288/.373/.462 with two home runs and four RBI in 52 at-bats, could begin to see regular playing time at shortstop in the near future.
Adams struck out one in one inning on Saturday in his only appearance after rejoining the team from Triple-A.
Indians INF/OF Mike Aviles (family leave) expected to return Monday
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/16/15) The Indians expect infielder/outfielder Mike Aviles to return from the family medical emergency list on Monday, reports the Northeast Ohio Media Group.
It had been previously reported that Aviles could return sometime over the weekend.
Aviles, who was deactivated May 8, is hitting .288 with two homers and four RBI.
Indians SS Mike Aviles could supplant Jose Ramirez as starter
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/14/15) Veteran Indians utility man Mike Aviles could be destined to take over the starting shortstop job, according to the Northeast Ohio Media Group.
Aviles is currently on the family medical emergency list after his daughter was diagnosed with leukemia, but he should be back this weekend.
He would replace struggling Jose Ramirez, who would be sent to Triple-A Columbus for steady work. Ramirez is batting .179.
"I'm encouraged by the way Jose continues to work, both offensively and defensively, to try to improve his performance," said general manager Chris Antonetti. "But it's been a struggle for him. He's a young player that's going through an extended struggle in the major leagues in an environment where there's high expectations for team success."
Ramirez has admitted that, though he remains confident, he's not the same player that helped spark the team following the 2014 trade of Asdrubal Cabrera.
His potential demotion would thrust Zach Walters into the backup shortstop role.
