Alex Avila (C, DET) – Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in AL-Only Leagues, Mixed Leagues With Two Catcher Slots ANALYSIS: Perhaps Alex Avila has been overlooked as a result of the strength of the team around him, but he has been a consistently solid contributor for the Tigers over the past five years.

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?

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.

Detroit Tigers: is Alex Avila running out of time?

Is it possible that Detroit Tigers catcher Alex Avila is over-the-hill at age 26? Rewind to the end of the 2011 season and it appeared as though the Tigers had baseball’s best up and coming catcher. He had hit .295 with 33 doubles, 19 homers, 82 RBI’s, and slugged at a .506 clip. The future doesn’t get much brighter for a young backstop. And then came 2012, the season in which...

Detroit Tigers rumors: catcher edition

Much has been made of the Detroit Tigers adding Torii Hunter to the roster and how much that will improve the offense and defense of a team that was so frustratingly close to winning it all last year. Indeed, Hunter will provide a huge piece to the Tigers’ puzzle, but he doesn’t cure all of the ills. Most people with an opinion have the Tigers’ 2013 Opening Day lineup looking...
