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.
Miles would make a great addition to any team who needs a solid bench/utility infielder. surprised he hasn’t been picked up.
It’s because he can’t get on base. He’s always been a decent avg. hitter, but he can barely draw a walk and is nothing more than a singles hitter. Plus, even though he is versatile, he’s nothing special defensively.
You could just bring a minor league guy to do the same thing he does for cheaper…..
The guy is a career .281 hitter after 9 years. AZ has two SS(McDonald& Bloomquist) older than him that can’t hit. This guy is an awesome role player who can spot start
He’s my next door neighbor… I told him the same thing before the season started.
He’s got to be kidding, right? Definatly not for the Cubs,saw him when he was there,
I believe he spent about 78 days on the 15 day DL in 2009. Which was fine with me, he was really bad. Hendry’s decision to go with the Milton Bradley/Aaron Miles combo instead of keeping DeRosa and signing Abreu/Ibanez/Dunn to play OF (all of which could have been accomplished for less or just slightly more than the Bradley/Miles fiasco) was a very, very poor move on his part.
