Aviles, 33, just completed his second season with Cleveland, hitting .247 (85-344) with 16 doubles, 1 triple, 5 home runs and 39 RBI in 113 games.

The New York, NY native was acquired by Cleveland from Toronto in November of 2012 with C Yan Gomes for RHP Esmil Rogers and was signed to a two-year deal with 2015 club option on February 7, 2013.

Among his memorable 2014 plays:

  • May 7 walk-off against the Twins:
