No arbitration for Aviles;Tribe signs reliever

By Sheldon Ocker Published: February 7, 2013

   The Indians today avoided arbitration with utility infielder Mike Aviles by signing him to a two-year guaranteed contract plus a club option for a third season.

   Aviles can play second, third, short and might log time in the outfield. He also is  a candidate to receive some at-bats at designated hitter.

   The guaranteed portion of his new deal is reportedly worth $6 million. He made $2 million last year with the Red Sox.

   Add another non-roster player to the Tribe's colleciton. Veteran left-hander Rich Hill agreed to a minor-league contract that inludes an invitation to major-league spring training camp.

   Hill, who turns 33 in March, posted a 1-0 record and 1.83 earned-run average in 19 2/3 innings for Boston last year but missed time with an elbow injury.
