Alex Avila showing signs offensively
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10:29 am ET) Tigers catcher Alex Avila could be poised for a strong second half, manager Brad Ausmus told the Detroit Free Press. Avila batted .275 over a 25-game stretch before going hitless Wednesday.

"He’s starting to swing the bat better," Ausmus said. "We were just talking about that in the coaches room. He’s been swinging the bat better, and I know he had a strong second half last year. We’re hoping he’s trending towards that again, because that would be a big boost to the bottom half of the lineup and the left side."

For the year, Avila is hitting .226 with six homers and 21 RBI in 212 at-bats.
