The other day we found out that the Cubs were wanting another catcher in Alex Avila, well it appears that they will probably acquire him.
@BNightengale (on twitter) at USA TODAY sports tweeted, “The Tigers next trade chip to fall will be catcher Alex Avila, and no team has expressed stronger interest than the Cubs. It’s a perfect fit.”
Alex Avila has the best OPS as a catcher in the Majors. This would be huge to have behind Contreas who does need a break every once in a while.
I would expect the Cubs to acquire him within the next couple of days, but you never know what may happen.
