(5/27/2015) Indians shortstop Mike Aviles will make his second consecutive start against the Rangers on Wednesday. 

Aviles, who went 0 for 3 with a walk and a strikeout in his team's 4-3 loss on Tuesday, will look to improve his .310 batting average after getting another start under his belt.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2015) Two regulars are not in the starting lineup for the Indians' game on Sunday. 

Center fielder Michael Bourn gets a rest after five straight starts in center. He's replaced by Michael Brantley, who gets his sixth start in center. 

Jose Ramirez sits after 12 straight starts at shortstop. Mike Aviles replaces him, batting ninth. 


Indians' Mike Aviles collects four hits, homers in win Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) 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
(5/18/2015) 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
(5/16/2015) 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
(5/14/2015) 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.


Indians OF Mike Alives may join team this weekend


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2015) Indians outfielder Mike Aviles may rejoin the team this weekend, but manager Terry Francona said he will give him all the time he needs, reports MLB.com.

Alives is currently on the bereavement list. He is hitting .288 with two home runs in 52 at-bats this season.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2015) The Indians made a pair of roster moves on Friday. 

Infielder Mike Aviles was placed on the Bereavement/Family Emergency list. He's eligible to return to the team on Monday. Aviles is hitting .288 this season, with two home runs and four RBI.

To fill his spot on the roster, the Indians promoted Zach Walters from Triple-A Columbus. Walters appeared in 30 games with Cleveland last year. He was hitting .239 with one home run and nine RBI in Columbus.


Indians manager Terry Francona loads up on lefties Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/7/2015) With a right-hander slated to toe the rubber for the Royals on Thursday, Indians manager Terry Francona has produced a heavy lefty-hitting lineup.

David Murphy returns to the starting lineup as the designated hitter, while Nick Swisher gets a rest after playing in two straight since returning from a DL stint.

Michael Bourn, who will be benched against lefties for the near future, was back in the lineup batting seventh and playing center field. 

Switch-hitter Jose Ramirez slides in at shorstop to replace Mike Aviles. The Indians' lineup contains just one natural right-handed hitter, catcher Roberto Perez.


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.

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.
