Former Red Sox infielder Mike Aviles was signed to a one-year contract by the Detroit Tigers. In 2011, Aviles came over to The Carmine Hose in a trade with the Kansas City Royals in exchange for forgettable third-base prospect Yamaico Navarro. In his two years here, Aviles hit .261 with 15 HRs. He showed great versatility as well, playing shortstop, second base and third base. He was always a popular player here in Boston and we wish him the best in The Motor City.
