Cleveland Indians SS Mike Aviles is batting second and playing shortstop Friday, August 1, against the Texas Rangers.
Fantasy Tip: Aviles stands to finish the season strong, especially if he gets locked into the No. 2 spot in the batting order. He should be owned in all deep mixed leagues and AL-only formats. Until his salary rises in daily games, he is an excellent option, especially tonight against Texas starter Jerome Williams.

The Cleveland Indians have received 2B Zach Walters from the Washington Nationals as part of the SS Asdrubal Cabrera deal.
Fantasy Tip: With Mike Aviles the likely replacement at shortstop, Walters or Jose Ramirez will likely be sent to the minors. Aviles gets a huge boost to his fantasy value. He has proven to be a low-end middle infielder in the past. Everyday at-bats make Aviles a viable option in the majority of formats.
