Tigers exercised C Alex Avila's $5.4 million club option for the 2015 season.
Avila would have been arbitration-eligible if the option was declined and probably would have come close to $5.4 million anyway through that process despite batting just .218/.327/.359 in 124 games this past season. There's been talk that the Tigers might try to trade Avila at some point this winter, with the Red Sox, Braves, and Cardinals being floated as potential landing spots. Nov 17 - 10:26 AM
