San Diego Padres Sign Shortstop

The San Diego Padres have signed shortstop Luis Aviles Jr. to a minor-league contract.

Aviles spent the 2022 season in the Miami Marlins' minor-league system, posting a .256/.296/.460 triple-slash line, with 14 home runs, 46 RBIs, 14 stolen bases and 44 runs scored across 102 games, split between Double-A Pensacola and Triple-A Jacksonville.

He gives the Padres some extra organizational infield depth.

For his minor-league career, the 28-year-old holds a .242/.291/.367 triple-slash line, 57 home runs, 311 RBIs, 165 stolen bases and 359 runs scored over 803 games played.

Aviles is a former 30th-round pick by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 2013 MLB Draft.
