Mike Aviles traded (again) to Cleveland Indians for Esmil Rogers

Mark L. Baer-US PRESSWIRE

Two weeks after being traded to the Toronto Blue Jays, Aviles is on the move again.

Mike Aviles' tenure with the Toronto Blue Jays lasted only two weeks, as the infielder was traded to the Cleveland Indians, according to Jordan Bastian of MLB.com.

Aviles was sent to Toronto as compensation for the Boston Red Sox hiring John Farrell as manager. Last season, Aviles hit .250/.282/.381 with 13 home runs, 61 RBI, 57 runs and 13 stolen bases.

Cleveland has established starters at both shortstop (Asdrubal Cabrera) and second base (Jason Kipnis), though Aviles does have 61 career appearances at third base.

The Blue Jays hope Esmil Rogers can boost their pitching staff after he thrived out of the Indians' bullpen. Rogers was purchased from the Colorado Rockies in June and posted a 3.06 ERA over 53 innings. The 27-year-old has a 4.0 BB/9 over his career, but cut that mark down to 2.0 BB/9 with Cleveland.

Toronto's pitching staff had a nightmare year. The Blue Jays started 12 different pitchers and had a total of 34 different pitchers made appearances in 2012.

Yan Gomes will also be heading to Cleveland. The 24-year-old played first base, catcher, third base and left field while hitting .204/.264/.367 over 43 games with the Blue Jays in 2012.
