Alex Avila finalizes two-year deal with Diamondbacks

Alex Avila has passed his physical and his two-year, $8.25 million deal with the Diamondbacks is now official.

Fantasy Impact

Avila had a fine season in 2017, batting .264 with 14 home runs, and finishing second in the league in hard-contact rate at 48.7 percent. If a humidor gets imposed in Arizona, it may take the shine off Avila's outlook a bit. But absent that, he should make a fine option in two-catcher formats, at least.

Alex Avila agrees to 2-year deal with D-backs

Alex Avila has agreed to a deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks, for 2-years worth $8.25M.

Fantasy Impact

Avila is joining a team that lacks a full time starting catcher, increasing his value from his days with the Cubs. Last season, between 2 teams, Avila was able to bat .264 with 14 home runs and 90 combined runs and RBIs. It is still likely that he will split time with right-hand hitting Jeff Mathis due to his career .212 average against southpaws.

Alex Avila drives in winning run Wednesday versus Pittsburgh

Alex Avila went 1-for-4 with that lone hit being a ninth inning run-scoring triple in the 1-0 victory.

Fantasy Impact

His value saw a huge increase when Willson Contreras got hurt and it now looks like Avila will have at least a full month as the primary catcher.
