Avila is out of the lineup Sunday against the Mariners, Paul Skrbina of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Avila came off the DL on Saturday following a lengthy bout with a hamstring injury and was behind the plate for the White Sox for the first time since July 5, going 1-for-3 with a solo homer and a walk in the contest. With Dioner Navarro recently getting traded to the Blue Jays, Avila will settle in as the unquestioned top catcher on the depth chart, so he'll just receiving a rest Sunday. Omar Narvaez gets the nod in the matinee, catching White Sox starter Carlos Rodon.

Avila (hamstring) was activated from the DL on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The White Sox cleared room for Avila by shipping Dioner Navarro off to Toronto. Avila hasn't played in the majors since July 5 but he was locked in throughout his rehab assignment, going 7-for-11 with a home run in four games with Triple-A Charlotte. He'll become a free agent again after the season.

Avila (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Charlotte on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

This will mark the second rehab stint for Avila during his current stay on the DL after he aggravated his original hamstring injury during a rehab game back in July. If all goes well this time around, Avila could conceivably return to the White Sox within the next week, though with Omar Narvaez seeing considerable time behind the plate, Avila could struggle to find regular starts. The 29-year-old, who's hitting .236 on the season, hasn't played in a major league game since July 5.

Avila (hamstring) could begin a rehab assignment later this week, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

This will be Avila's second rehab assignment during his current stint on the disabled list, as his first stint at Triple-A lasted all of two days before aggravating his hamstring injury. Playing time may not be plentiful when he returns, as rookie Omar Narvaez has been getting more than fair shake behind the plate lately.

Manager Robin Ventura said Avila (hamstring) has been able to hit, but he is still unable to run, the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

The timeteable for Avila's return from the injury remains very much in the air, though a return sometime later in August seems feasible. Omar Navarez will continue to backup Dioner Navarro in Avila's absence.

Avila (hamstring) will miss an additional four weeks after suffering a setback during Wednesday's rehab assignment, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Avila suffered more damage to his injured hamstring Wednesday, causing him to leave the contest early. The catcher was expected to return in the coming days after being placed on the 15-day DL on July 5, but will likely be back around mid-August after this setback. Dioner Navarro has been filling in behind the plate in his lace, and will continue to get the bulk of time while Avila is recovering.

Avila (hamstring) left a rehab game Wednesday night early and is being evaluated again, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Assuming that it's a setback with the hamstring injury that put him on the DL in the first place, Avila will likely miss a few extra days at the bare minimum. Further details will likely come from the White Sox after the team returns home Thursday.
