Stop overlooking Alex Avila

Detroit Tigers catcher Alex Avila continues to punish right-handed pitching as he smacked his 10th homer tonight and his batting average is well above .300. Avila boasts a high walk rate and we love that he keeps being featured in the No. 2 lineup spot. He rarely faces a lefty pitcher. Add it up and Avila is among the top-5 fantasy catchers so far and at this point he's a better option than Evan Gattis, Russell Martin and Matt Wieters, among many others.
