Latest Update Aybar drives in a run and swipes bag Wednesday Thu Jul, 24, 06:36 AM
Is a very slick infielder with the arm to play shortstop. Makes good contact as a batter, hitting for a solid average with some stolen bases.
Flaws: : Doesn't make the most of his speed on the bases; he gets thrown out too much. Has very little power in his swing. Makes a lot of errors at shortstop.
Aybar is now just 2-for-12 since returning from the All-Star break, hitting .250 with just three extra-base hits through 72 at-bats in the month of July. However, his lack of production likely stems from his recent groin injury that sidelined him this weekend, so now that it appears he is back at 100 percent he should get back on track sooner rather than later.

This will be the first game he has started since Friday because he was nursing a groin injury. He is a reliable shortstop and should be started in most fantasy leagues.Analyst: Mark KaplanMore Experts..
Aybar was actually available for Monday's game but was held out for precaution reasons. He should be safe to get back into your lineup now though.Analyst: Howard Bender
Aybar, who had missed three straight starts due to a right groin injury, grounded out to the pitcher in the bottom of the ninth. Aybar had said pregame that he felt better during batting practice, which gave Angels manager Mike Sciscia confidence to use his shortstop in a pinch-hitting fashion and should suggest that he will be back in the staring lineup for the Angels next game.rnAnalyst: Michael Pichan
