Free agent infielder Aaron Miles hopes to play this season, so he's staying in shape in anticipation of the right opportunity. Agent David Schwartz says the 35-year-old Miles will be ready if an opening emerges.
Miles became a fixture on last year's Dodgers team, hitting .275/.314/.346 in 490 plate appearances. He hasn’t played much shortstop in recent years, but Schwartz says his client can fill in at short, second and third if necessary. Miles spent considerable time at second and third last year, and appeared briefly at shortstop, a position he hasn't played much since 2008.
