The Cleveland Indians have placed infielder Mike Aviles on the family medical emergency list so he can tend to his four-year-old daughter Adriana, who has leukemia.
This is Aviles's second stint on the family medical emergency list this season. He was placed on the list from May 8 to May 14 after Adriana was diagnosed with leukemia.
The Akron Beacon-Journal reports Aviles is with his daughter at the Cleveland Clinic. He can remain on the list for seven days.
The Indians recalled shortstop Jose Ramirez in a corresponding move. Aviles is batting .250 with four home runs and nine RBIs this season.
Terry Francona said that Mike Aviles left the team last night to be w/his daughter, Adriana, who is undergoing further leukemia treatment.— Cleveland Indians (@Indians) July 11, 2015
