Marlins purchased the contract of INF/OF Mike Aviles from Triple-A New Orleans.

Aviles was just signed to a minor league deal last weekend as the club added depth with the rash of injuries they've had to their infield. The veteran utility player will provide depth at multiple positions.

Marlins signed INF/OF Mike Aviles to a minor league contract.

The 36-year-old hit just .210/.258/.269 in 181 plate appearances for the Tigers in 2016. With the injuries to both Miguel Rojas and Martin Prado on Sunday, the Marlins need additional organizational depth in the infield and Aviles fits the bill. He remains irrelevant for fantasy purposes.

Mike Aviles notched four hits Saturday in Puerto Rico’s blowout win over Venezuela at the World Baseball Classic.

Puerto Rico punched its ticket to the semifinals by beating the United States on Friday night, which made Saturday’s game meaningless. Even with nothing to play for, Aviles still brought his A game, lighting up Venezuela for four singles. Aviles hasn’t had a ton of opportunities in the WBC but he’s played well when called upon, collecting six hits in nine at-bats. Next up for Puerto Rico is a semifinals matchup with the Netherlands Monday night in Los Angeles.

Braves designated INF/OF Mike Aviles for assignment.

Aviles was acquired from the Tigers on Tuesday for Erick Aybar, but he probably won't play a game in a Braves uniform. The veteran utilityman was batting just .210/.258/.269 in 181 plate appearances with Detroit.

Braves acquired INF/OF Mike Aviles and C Kade Scivicque from the Tigers for INF Erick Aybar.

Aviles was sporting a weak .210/.258/.269 batting line through 181 plate appearances this season with Detroit. He'll probably see action all around the diamond in Atlanta as a kind of veteran super-utilityman.

Mike Aviles delivered a go-ahead RBI single in the eighth inning on Tuesday, leading the Tigers to a 4-2 victory over the Mariners.

Aviles strode to the plate with the bases loaded and hit a dribbler between the pitcher and first base that he beat out for the run-scoring knock. Aviles finished the night 2-for-4, raising his season slash to a still cringe-inducing .226/.261/.250 to go along with five RBI.

Mike Aviles (wrist) had one hit in four at-bats in his return to action Thursday.

Aviles departed Wednesday's game with a left wrist injury but wound up not missing any time. He's batting just .227/.266/.253 for the Tigers this season.

Mike Aviles left Tuesday's game against the White Sox with an apparent wrist injury.

Aviles appeared to hurt his left wrist while diving for a hit by Jose Abreu in the eighth inning. He stayed in the game but Cameron Maybin pinch-hit for him in the next half frame. Aviles had a very tough night in the field (two errors) but made up for it by contributing a pair of hits. Andrew Romine replaced Aviles at third base in the ninth inning.

Mike Aviles hit a three-run homer Monday in the Tigers' drubbing of the Mets.

Aviles is a fringe 25th man these days, since he's not really an asset defensively in the infield and he hasn't hit in a couple of years. Still, the Tigers pretty much guaranteed him a job by giving him $2 million in December. He's 4-for-20 this spring.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the one-year contract between the Tigers and Mike Aviles is for $2 million.

Aviles can also earn an additional $300,000 in incentives. The veteran utilityman provides much-needed versatility to the Tigers' bench with his ability to play four different infield positions as well as either corner outfield spot.

Tigers signed INF/OF Mike Aviles to a one-year contract.

Financial terms of the deal have yet to be disclosed. ESPN's Buster Olney reported earlier in the afternoon that the two sides had reached an accord. Aviles will bring versatility to the Tigers bench with the ability to play six different positions.

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Tigers have reached an agreement with Mike Aviles.

There's no word yet on the terms of the contract, but it's presumably a major league deal. Aviles, who will turn 35 in March, hit only .231/.282/.317 for the Indians last season but played six different positions. He'll give manager Brad Ausmus a lot of versatility.
