Tigers signed C Alex Avila to a one-year contract.
Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports says the deal is worth $2 million. Avila is reunited with his original organization and also with his father, who is the Tigers' general manager. The veteran catcher hasn't played even 70 games in either of the last two seasons and has a .202 average over that time, but he's still gotten on base at a good clip (.349 OBP). He'll back up James McCann. Fri, Dec 23, 2016 03:55:00 PM
