Sox Acquire Mike Aviles From Royals


Today the Red Sox sent Yamaico Navarro and minor league pitcher Kendal Volz to the Royals for utility infielder Mike Aviles. Aviles, 30, finished fourth in the 2008 rookie of the year voting, but has struggled with his utility role this year. He’ll add much needed depth to the Sox infield while Jed Lowrie is on the DL. Aviles is arbitration eligible at the end of the year and is under team control until 2014.
