ALEX AVILA RUMORS & GOSSIP

Tigers 'rebooting,' make David Price available in trade

The question about whether or not the Detroit Tigers are buyers or sellers has reportedly been answered – they’re selling. Specifically, they’re “rebooting” and listening on some of their impending free agents, including both David Price and Yoenis Cespedes. Dombrowski confirms: Tigers are “rebooting,” will listen on trades for pending free agents. — Jason Beck...

Tigers activate Alex Avila and option Bryan Holaday to Triple-A

In a series of moves for the Tigers on Friday, they also activated veteran catcher Alex Avila from the 15-day DL and optioned Bryan Holaday to Triple-A Toledo. Batting sixth and starting tonight against the Blue Jays Avila may likely see a somewhat reduced role behind the plate especially against left-handed pitchers.

Alex Avila close to rejoining the Detroit Tigers

After almost two months on the disabled list, it appears the Detroit Tigers are a few days away from getting their everyday catcher back. Alex Avila was placed on the disabled list by Tigers on May 9 with what was termed as “loose bodies” in his left knee. Avila originally was going to have surgery but surgery was avoided for a plan of rest and rehab. In 22 games this season...

Don’t think the Tigers miss Alex Avila? They sorely do.

Don’t think the Tigers miss Alex Avila much? Avila has been on the shelf since May 9th with “loose bodies in his left knee”, but has recently resumed baseball activities meaning his return to the club is close. The Tigers were 19-11 when Avila the day Avila went on the disabled list and have gone 9-17 since. Don’t think the Detroit Tigers miss Alex Avila. You have to be...

Avila on the 15-day DL with a knee injury, could be out until after the All-Star break

The Tigers announced Saturday that catcher Alex Avila was placed on the 15-day DL with what was described as a ‘loose body’ in his knee. So what the hell does that mean? Apparently a piece of bone or cartilage became loose in the knee and may have to be scoped out via arthroscopic surgery. This means the veteran catcher could be lost for about 2-3 months or return to the lineup...

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...

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. The struggles of Miguel Cabrera and the lack of offensive contribution at the shortstop position could be seen as the main reason for these...

Detroit Tigers: Questions behind the plate

Detroit Tigers: Questions behind the plateQuestions about the Detroit Tigers heading into the 2014 season range from the bullpen, to the third base position  and everything in between. Answering those questions however, likely won’t happen until the first month of the season is completed. Although, there might be enough evidence to turn one of those questions into a frightening...

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...
