Aviles and a Catcher (Kade Sclvicque) traded for Erick Aybar 

Yeah, I had the catcher on the wrong side of things... Detroit is give up the catcher.

Apparently he's only 23, but doesn't look it...

He's got a .282/.325/.280 line in Lakeland this year.

YESSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Scivicque is probably our best catcher in the minors, but who cares that's not saying much and Aviles is gone!!!!!! Maybe Aybar can even deliver a few clutch hits.

I was hoping Aybar had some platoon splits that we could possibly take advantage of but that doesn't seem to be the case.

Aybar is a switch hitter correct?  Plus, he has been an everyday player for most of his career.  This has to be an upgrade for the Tigers over Aviles.  Iglesias's offensive stats aren't too much better than this guys'.

With all the injuries that have come up over the past week or so, they really needed to end the aviles thing. Its time to bring Moya back up.

 

They just did both.

he was a good defender, but his defense has fallen off some.

Well I certainly didn't expect that we'd be trading a not worthless prospect in order to facilitate it, but this works.

We definitely couldn't continue with aviles or romine getting regular reps at SS while Iglesias is injured and castellanos out as well.

I believe Sciv has been called all Hit and not really D, so most likely a long term 1B or DH player.

I think Moya's up for a day until Aybar gets here. 

Guessing Machado goes down. No reason for him to be up here sitting on the bench.

Plus you would hope being in a playoff chase and not playing for the woeful Braves, might help a guy focus.

By extension, does this mean Aviles could actually be worse than he's been so far this season?

Since the Tigers end the season in Atlanta, this can only mean they will be eliminated from the playoffs by a Mike Aviles walk off homer.

I agree.  I think this is what will happen. 

And might as well give Moya a game or two in LF since Uptn sucks again.
