During an appearance on MLB Network Radio, free agent Alex Avila stated that he'd be open to being a backup on a contending club.
"The number one priority is having an opportunity to go to the playoffs," Avila said. "I have told teams this. My agent this. I have no issue going to a team and being a backup. I have no issue being a platoon player." While saying this is not the same thing as turning down money from a team that may not contend, it certainly does open up the 31-year-old's potential landing spots, as almost any club would welcome him as their backup. That being said, there are contending teams that could procure his services as a starter just as easily this winter. Nov 29 - 10:44 PM
