Trey Hillman Media Session: April 11, 2010
The decision to send infielder Mike Aviles to Triple-A Omaha was the big news today during Trey Hillman’s pregame media session. The move was made as a result of pitcher Gil Meche’s return from the 15-day disabled list (right shoulder bursitis). Hillman noted that Aviles was disappointed during their meeting but also expressed trust in what the club was doing. “Mike gets the big picture,” said Hillman. Aviles will play shortstop for the majority of his stint in Omaha and Hillman expects him to get plenty of at-bats.
