Unfortunately his production has slipped even further in the last 30 days with a .164 AVG (9-for-55) and .425 OPS.

Mike Aviles does not have much fantasy value apart from his multi-position eligibility. So far in August, the 34-year-old has started at second base (when Jason Kipnis hit the DL), left field (whilst Michael Brantley was rested) and third base (now that Giovanny Urshela is nursing a sore shoulder). Unfortunately, he is not producing much with this playing time with a disappointing .626 OPS.
