Mike Aviles could be headed to Philly, Nick Cafardo reports.
Mike Aviles, SS, Red Sox - Yes, he is currently Boston’s starting shortstop, but the Phillies are one team that would be interested, as they continue to search for an experienced backup infielder who could protect them in case Chase Utley gets off to a slow start with his right knee tendinitis. If the Red Sox committed to Iglesias, Aviles may be available.Just one question. Do we know who the shortstop is? Are they really ready to commit to Jose Iglesias? What about good ol' Nick Punto? (OK it was a multipart question, but it counts as one on the test.) Jim Corrigan 3/18/2012 08:30:00 PM Tweet
