Line of the Day: April 24th, 2011

2B/3B/SS Mike Aviles of the Kansas City Royals was 3-for-5 with two home runs, four RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base in the Royals 8-7 loss to the Texas Rangers. It was Aviles' second and third homers of the season and his fourth stolen base.

Line: 5 AB, 2 R, 3 H, 4 RBI; 2 HR, SB

Fantasy perspective: Aviles has been in the mix for playing time with the Royals at both 2B and 3B while carrying over SS eligibility in some leagues from last season. In 15 games, he only has 13 hits in 55 at-bats (.236 BA) but nine of them have been for extra bases (5 2B, 1 3B, 3 HR). Add in his 14 RBI and 4 SB and you are looking at a player that should be valuable to most teams in deep mixed leagues, especially those utilizing an MI or IF roster spot.
