Tigers general manager Al Avila said Tuesday that he would consider his son, Alex Avila, as the club looks for a backup catcher this winter.
The Tigers were set behind the plate last offseason, so Avila left for a one-year, $2.5 million deal with the White Sox. The 29-year-old appeared in 57 games this season while batting .213 with seven homers and a .732 OPS in 209 plate appearances. Avila was originally drafted by the Tigers back in 2008 and spent the first seven seasons of his career with the club. James McCann is now the primary catcher in Detroit. Oct 18 - 1:50 PM
