@jonmorosi from MLBNetwork and MLB.com tweeted that the Cubs are “staying in contact regarding possible Alex Avila trade..”
Avila would be a perfect back up catcher for the Cubs as he has a .292 batting average with 11 homers and 29 RBI’s. Avila also has a .938 OPS which is the best out of any MLB catcher (minimum 100 plate appearances”.
Who would Chicago send to Detroit though? Avila is a free agent after this year, so I believe the Cubs would not want to give up that much for a rental.
