Aybar may continue to get starts at shortstop after Jose Iglesias (hamstring) returns from injury, reports the Detroit Free Press.

EDGE Analysis

Aybar was hitting .233 in eight games with the Tigers after hitting .242 in 97 games with the Braves. He may also get starts at third, but 1,235 of his 1,293 games played in the majors came at short. Manager Brad Ausmus told reporters Thursday that starter Jose Iglesias' hamstring was still bothering him, so he may not be activated from the disabled list right away. Keep Aybar going while you can.

Aybar was traded to the Tigers on Tuesday in exchange for Mike Aviles and Kade Scivicque.

EDGE Analysis

It's been a miserable season for Aybar, but he's been hot in August (18-for-54) and will fill an immediate need for Detroit with Jose Iglesias (hamstring) landing on the DL. Aybar has been caught on the basepaths five times in eight attempts this season and will be batting at the bottom of the order, so there's little reason to think Aybar contribute much in the stolen base category the rest of the way. That said, he'll have some appeal in deep AL-only leagues while he's still hitting.

Aybar went 2-for-5 with a two-RBI double and a run in Saturday's 7-6 loss to the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

He went from hero to goat in the matter of a trip around the bases in the ninth, getting tagged out trying to leg out a triple after driving in Jeff Francoeur and Ender Inciarte with the hit. Aybar's double off Nationals closer Mark Melancon had closed the Braves' deficit to 7-6, but his out ended the game. The veteran has been red-hot in August, having hit safely in all but one of his 11 games during the month and slashing .340/.340/.540 over 50 at-bats.

Aybar is not in the lineup Thursday against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Aybar will get a day of rest as Gordon Beckham makes his first start at shortstop since coming off the disabled list. Aybar has pulled things together following a rough stretch to start the season as he's slashed .307/.381/.427 over his last 22 games. The 32-year-old should see similar playing time going forward as Gordon Beckham's most frequented starts are at second and third base.

Aybar hit his first home run in a 1-for-4 game in Monday's loss to Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

After 64 games and 241 plate appearances, Aybar is finally on the board. He has reached double-digit home runs just once, in 2011, and shouldn't be expected to reach such lofty heights ever again. Still, his .226/.282/.286 line paints the profile of a hitter who has disappointed on every level.
