Aviles spent the 2012 season as a member of the Boston Red
Sox, but he was traded to the Blue Jays as compensation for manager John
Farrell. The 31-year-old played all over the infield throughout his career, but
he spent a majority of last season at shortstop for Boston.
Over 512 at-bats with the Red Sox this season, Aviles hit
.250/.282/.381 with 28 doubles and 13 home runs. He owns a career line of
.277/.308/.408 over five seasons at the major league level.
Rogers was acquired by the Indians from the Colorado Rockies
this summer in exchange for cash considerations. The hard-throwing 27-year-old
struggled mightily during the first half of the season, but he rebounded nicely
in Cleveland. Over 44 appearances with the Indians he maintained an ERA of 3.06
with 9.2 strikeouts per nine and 2.0 walks per nine.
Gomes made his major league debut with the Blue Jays this
season. He collected 20 hits, including four doubles and four home runs, over
98 at-bats. The 25-year-old owns a career minor league line of .287/.344/.484.

As you should all know by now, the Jays have trade Mike Aviles and Yan Gomes for Esmil Rogers.

Jeff let me know he had a card of Carlos Santana I might be interested in, and sent it along without even questioning what I had to send in return. It's taken me forever to get to this post, so my apologies to Jeff on that front.Numbered 16/50, it's a sweet parallel of some sort from 2009 TriStar Obak of the...
