CLEVELAND (AP) - The Indians have signed infielder Mike Aviles to a two-year contract with a club option for the 2015 season.
Financial terms were not immediately available.
Aviles, who was acquired in a trade from Toronto in November, gives the Indians depth at second base and shortstop. He spent last season as Boston's primary shortstop, batting .250 with 13 homers and 60 RBIs in 136 games.
The 31-year-old was eligible for salary arbitration before agreeing to the deal. The Indians have not gone to an arbitration hearing with a player since 1991.
Aviles also posted a career-high in doubles (28) last season and matched personal bests in extra-base hits (41) and steals (14).
