With Yan Gomes receiving the day off, Alex Avila went 2-for-3 with one run scored and one RBI. Avila hit two doubles with one walk on Sunday.
In minimal playing time of 21 plate appearances, Avila is hitting .235 with a .852 OPS in May. Outside of NL-only leagues, he isn't fantasy relevant.
Nationals backup catcher Alex Avila went 1-for-4 with one RBI, one walk, and two strikeouts. His RBI triple broke the 1-1 tie in the 6th inning.
Avila has a .174 batting average with three RBI in 30 plate appearances. He's only relevant in NL-only leagues but could be mixed-league relevant in 15-team leagues with two catchers if Yan Gomes suffers an injury.
In Wednesday's 1-0 win against the Cardinals, catcher Alex Avila knocked in the only run of the game. Avila went 2-for-3 with two doubles and one RBI.
As a backup catcher, Avila recorded his first two hits of the season on Wednesday for a .222 batting average in ten plate appearances. He's not fantasy-relevant unless Yan Gomes misses time or it's a league deeper than 15-teams with two catchers.
Alex Avila (COVID-19) was reinstated from the injured list ahead of Friday's game.
Several Nationals players were placed on the COVID-19 IL, either for contracting the virus or for being a close contact. Now that Avila has been reinstated, it seems that he was the latter. Yan Gomes was also reactivated on Friday, which likely relegates Avila to backup duties.
Alex Avila has been left off the Nationals' Opening Day roster due to COVID-related protocols.
It is unclear if Avila was one of the players who contracted COVID-19 or if he was a close contact. Either way, he'll miss an unspecified amount of time.
