ALEX AVILA RUMORS & GOSSIP

3 Detroit Tigers that need to rise above

I’m sure you’ve heard the saying that ‘water always finds its level’. Well, for the Detroit Tigers in 2015, they’re going to need a few players to rise above what is expected of them and play excellent baseball. I will be posting a series of articles identifying certain categories of players within each position group (offense, starting pitching, and bullpen) and breaking...

Is Alex Avila tipping the Tigers’ pitches?

Fans and the Tigers alike continue to look for answers when it comes to the team’s nearly month and a half long free fall. During that time the offense has gone silent but perhaps most importantly Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer have been getting lit up by opposing pitchers which again leaves many wondering what the hell is going on? Could it be mechanics? A string of bad luck...

WATCH: Alex Avila takes foul tip straight to the nuts

via Vine Alex Avila takes more foul tips of the mask than any other catcher in the history of baseball.  Ok, I made that up.  Sunday night against the Red Sox, he would have been so lucky to take one off the mask.  A Shane Victorino foul ball gave him an instant stomach ache and made his throat dry.  Have you been there?  It isn’t a good feeling. My stomach hurts just watching...

Alex Avila Took A Foul Ball Straight to His Manhood

Alex Avila seems to take the most damage and hurt out of any catcher in baseball, and Sunday’s game against the Red Sox was just another chapter in his painful MLB career. Avila took a foul tip off the bat of Shane Victorino straight into his junk during the fifth inning of Sunday’s series finale between the Tigers and Sox, and it didn’t look like too much fun. I have to imagine...

Detroit Tigers: Addressing the Alex Avila problem

Almost a month into the 2014 Major League Baseball season, the Detroit Tigers have yet to find a way to score runs on a consistent basis. In 17 games, Detroit has failed to score more than two runs on eight occasions and are 2-6 in those games.

Detroit Tigers: depth a major concern

Over the past two seasons the Detroit Tigers have been a relatively healthy team in terms of games missed, especially considering the advanced age of some of their players. This good fortune has allowed the front office to hide the organization’s lack of overall depth. A farm system that is said to rank 28th out of 30 won’t offer the Tigers much if a few key players start to...
