Diamondbacks signed C Alex Avila to a two-year, $8.25 million contract.
Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that Avila passed his physical on Tuesday, and the deal is now official with Reymond Fuentes being designated for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster. Avila, 31, spent the 2017 season with the Tigers and Cubs, hitting 14 homers with 49 RBI and an .834 OPS in 112 games between the two clubs. He should be the primary catcher for Arizona in 2018, with backups Jeff Mathis and Chris Herrmann likely getting the occasional start to give the left-handed-hitting veteran a day off.
