Indians' Lonnie Chisenhall not in lineup Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2015) Indians third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall is not in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Royals.

The Royals are sending lefty Jason Vargas to the mound Monday, so the Indians will start Mike Aviles at third base and bat him second. Designated hitter Ryan Raburn is also in the lineup as usual against lefties, batting fifth.

The Indians are favorites (-145) at home against the Royals Monday.


Indians' Mike Aviles in, Jose Ramirez out of lineup Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Indians infielder Mike Aviles is in the starting lineup Sunday, batting second and playing shortstop in his team's matchup with the Tigers.

Aviles is seeing just his second start of the season at shortstop, as most of his work has come in the oufield. He'll take the place of Jose Ramirez, who had started 10 straight games coming into Sunday.

The Indians have also made a change at the top of the lineup, moving second baseman Jason Kipnis to the leadoff spot. Kipnis and Aviles batted 1-2 in the team's last start against a southpaw, and lefty Kyle Lobstein is on the mound of the Tigers Sunday. Center fielder and typical leadoff man Michael Bourn will bat ninth.

The Indians are road favorites (-115) in Detroit Sunday.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) Indians outfielder Michael Brantley and third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall are out of the starting lineup Tuesday, but are available to come off the bench, the team announced.

Brantley, who is dealing with a back injury, has played just two games this season while battling the injury. Jerry Sands will fill in for Brantley in left field. Chisenhall has started all six games for Cleveland at third so far this season and will get the day off. He will be replaced by Mike Aviles, who will bat second.

The Indians are currently the favorites (-127) over the White Sox.


Indians' Francona: DL stint not needed for OF Michael Brantley


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2015) Indians outfielder Michael Brantley was not included in the starting lineup for Saturday's contest against Detroit, per FOX Sports Ohio.

Brantley returned from a two-game absence due to lower back stiffness on Friday, but revealed that he's still experiencing some discomfort. Manager Terry Francona also added on Friday that he would give Brantley some occasional days of rest moving forward. On Saturday Francona revealed that both sides have discussed about a possible stint on the disabled list, but "no one thinks it's needed," per the Northeast Ohio Media Group.

"He wants to play so bad," Francona said. "I just think we need to let this thing settle down, whether that's today, today and tomorrow, we'll see."

With Brantley sidelined, the Indians will have Ryan Raburn at DH, Mike Aviles in left field, and Jerry Sands in right field.

Indians exercise option on INF/OF Mike Aviles


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/31/2014) What was anticipated has become official - the Indians have picked up their $3.5 million option on utility man Mike Aviles for 2015.

Aviles played both outfield and infield while compiling a stat line of .247/.273/.343 this season. He also tied a career-high with 14 stolen bases.


Report: Indians likely to exercise option on Mike Aviles


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) The Indians are expected to exercise their $3.5 million option on versatile veteran Mike Aviles, according to the Northeast Ohio Media Group.

Aviles played outfield and all infield positions aside from first base last season in earning 344 at-bats. He finished the year with a stat line of .247/.273/.343 and tied a career-best with 14 stolen bases.

He was part of a lopsided deal before the 2013 season for Esmil Rogers in which the Indians also received emerging standout catcher Yan Gomes.


Indians still undecided on Mike Aviles option for 2015


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) The Indians remain undecided whether to pick up the $3.5 million option for 2015 on utility player Mike Aviles. The team has about three weeks to make that decision.

Aviles played multiple positions and managed a .247/.273/.343 stat line. He swung a more potent stick against left-handers, an area that has proven problematic for the Indians.

"We'll go through our meetings and make sure we make the decision in time," general manager Chris Antonetti told the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "But I can tell you much we appreciate Mike's contributions to the team, what he means on the field, his versatility, the way he's filled in almost anywhere on the diamond when we've had injuries, the presence he has in our clubhouse and the way he helps unify our group and create the energy and atmosphere in our clubhouse every day. We don't take those things for granted."

The emergence of middle infielder Jose Ramirez and presence of top prospect Francisco Lindor as the potential starting shortstop next season could make Aviles expendable, though he has filled in as an outfielder as well.

"He's doing much better," manager Terry Francona said. "If you see him now, he looks like night and day. He feels it. He's starting to get antsy. He's pushing the trainers. That's all good signs. He was kind of cloudy there for a few days, man. It's what a concussion does."

Aviles is following the league's standard concussion protocol, though he isn't on the disabled list. If he continues to improve, he could return to game action by Thursday or Friday.

(9/5/2014) Indians infielder Mike Aviles is not in the lineup yet again Friday against the White Sox, and appears to be dealing with concussion-like symptoms, despite having passed a concussion test earlier in the week.
