Alex Avila (back) placed on the injured list

Alex Avila, who has been dealing with back tightness, was placed on the 10-day IL on Saturday. Willians Astudillo was called up in a corresponding move

Fantasy Impact

Avila's back was bothering him earlier this week when he was scratched from the lineup on September 2nd with back tightness. He also exited Friday's game early, likely for the same reason. Astudillo will split catching duties with Ryan Jeffers but could see time at other positions as well, per beat writer Aaron Gleeman.

Alex Avila removed from Friday's game with apparent injury

Alex Avila departed Friday's game against the Tigers with an apparent injury.

Fantasy Impact

Avila scratched from the lineup earlier this week due to back tightness, so perhaps that was the issue here. We'll probably get an update by Saturday.

Alex Avila scratched with lower back tightness

Alex Avila was scratched from the Twins' lineup on Wednesday due to lower back tightness.

Fantasy Impact

Consider him day-to-day. Avila has been getting some extra playing time with Mitch Garver on the IL.

Alex Avila scores in win over Brewers

Alex Avila went 1-for-2 with a run scored and a pair of walks in Monday's win over Milwaukee.

Fantasy Impact

For the second straight day, Avila was starting and batting ninth. Mitch Garver's slow start to the season has opened a small window of opportunity for Avila, but he can generally be avoided in fantasy as long as Garver is healthy.
