by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Mike Aviles remains on roll as temporary starter


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2014) Indians versatile veteran Mike Aviles has maintained his torrid pace since the injury to Jason Kipnis has turned him into an every-day starter.

Mike Aviles filling in fine as temporary starter


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Aviles is 9 for 18 since April 29 and has raised his batting average to .302 on the season, which is quite helpful on a team with so many hitters struggling. He has four stolen bases, six RBI and 10 runs scored in 22 games.

"That's my job - be ready when you're called on," Aviles told MLB.com. "It's unfortunate we lose a guy like Kipnis, but I feel like our depth is going to get tested."

Aviles has at least two hits in five of his last seven games.

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

Mike Aviles ejected after game ends


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(6/5/2013) Indians shortstop Mike Aviles was ejected from Tuesday's loss to the Yankees, MLB.com reports. Aviles took exception to a ruling during his final plate appearance and was ejected after the game's final out had been made. 

Aviles flied out to right field to end the game but continued a previous argument with home-plate umpire Tony Randazzo, who ejected him. The first pitch Aviles saw in the at-bat against Mariano Rivera was a checked swing that was ruled a foul-tip strike. 

"Mike, you get emotional sometimes," manager Terry Francona said. "I just thought that, at that point, Tony should've kept walking or apologized to Mike. Everybody makes mistakes. That's a tough call. That's a tough position to be put in when you're facing Rivera."

Aviles, who is filling in at shortstop for Asdrubal Cabrera, went 1 for 4 in the game with a run scored and is batting .282.

Aviles, who went 2 for 4 with an RBI on a sacrifice fly, will be expected to man shortstop for as long as Cabrera misses time. CBS Sports Baseball Insider reports that with Cabrera almost certainly headed for the disabled list, manager Terry Francona expects big things from Aviles.

"Mike Aviles will shine," Francona predicted. "I have no doubt. You don't like to lose any players, but you don't like to use it as an excuse." 

Aviles is batting .283 and has gone 5 for 11 over his last three games with three RBI.
