Coming into the 2012 season, the big knock on Mike Aviles was his lack of defensive ability at the shortstop position. Now, it seems that the talented infielder is playing a major role in coordinating the Boston defensive attack.
Aviles made a key play in the Red Sox 5-1 win over the Blue Jays on Tuesday night, keeping a runner at first base because of his knowledge of the kicks and caroms around Fenway Park.
Aviles has been in constant communication with his fellow fielders and especially the outfielders to help improve the team's defense. He discussed it after Tuesday night's victory.
