Detroit Tigers, Alex Avila Agree to $4.35M Deal

Detroit Tigers, Alex Avila agree to $4.35M deal – ESPN.

Yes! Did you know:

He was an All-Star and a Silver Slugger in 2011, his second full year in the major leagues. He led the American League in runners caught stealing in 2011 and ’12.

He hit .303 after the All-Star break last year.

Welcome back to the toughest catcher in the game!

Avila is 27 and has took more balls to the face than Miley Cyrus. You think he gets an incentive clause for getting hit? He should.
