News: Avila went 2-for-3 with a double and a walk in Wednesday's loss to the Indians. Impact: Avila collected his first multi-hit performance and first extra-base hit of the season. He has labored through extended slumps in the past, but Avila had shown signs of turning things around after the All-Star break last season. Hopefully Wednesday's two-hit outing helps Avila rediscover last season's second-half form.(RotoWire, )

News: Avila is hitting just .130/.259/.130 with 14 strikeouts in 23 at-bats this season. Impact: Avila has been prone to extended slumps throughout his career, so his early-season swoon isn't all too surprising, but the 27-year-old backstop is usually much better at making contact. The Tigers don't have another everyday option behind the plate, so while Avila may see a couple days off while he's battling a slump, he shouldn't be in danger of losing his starting gig in the immediate future.(RotoWire, )
