News: Aviles has passed his concussion tests and will be available to play in Thursday's doubleheader against the Twins, Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Impact: While Aviles is not in the lineup for Game 1, it sounds as though he will be available off the bench and should return to face right-hander Ricky Nolaso in the nightcap. Aviles, who was cleared by the team as well as Major League Baseball, is 7-for-11 with a homer in his career against Nolasco.(RotoWire, )

News: Aviles (concussion) could return soon as soon as he's able to take live batting practice, MLB.com reports. "If you see him now, he looks like night and day. He feels it. He's starting to get antsy. He's pushing the trainers. That's all good signs," manager Terry Francona said. Impact: Aviles is hitting just .245 on 97 games this year and won't have much of a role waiting for him when he is able to rejoin the lineup. He could be back by the weekend if he continues to progress well.(RotoWire, )

News: Aviles (concussion) is beginning to feel better and hopes to resume normal baseball activities in the next few days, MLB.com reports. "Those first few days, he kind of looked under the weather. Again, he'll just start to pass milestones or tests along the way, and when he gets clearance, we'll get him back doing baseball stuff," manager Terry Francona said. Impact: Aviles could begin to start running and swinging a bat early next week, but nothing is certain so far. He's most likely out until the middle part of next week in a best-case scenario.(RotoWire, )

News: Manager Terry Francona said Thursday that Aviles has been experiencing concussion symptoms, MLB.com's Jordan Bastian reports. Impact: Though he won't go on the 7-day DL since it isn't necessary in September, Aviles will still be subjected to the league's concussion protocol. He initially passed his post-game concussion tests after he was removed Monday following a spell of dizziness, but as is common, his symptoms began to surface a couple days later. There's no concrete timetable for when Aviles might be available for the Indians, who have more than enough depth to get by without him, thanks to the reinforcements they called up earlier in the week.(RotoWire, )
