CLEVELAND (AP) - The Indians have signed infielder Mike Aviles to a two-year, $6 million contract with a club option for the 2015 season.

Aviles, who was acquired in a trade from Toronto in November, gives the Indians depth at second base, shortstop and in the outfield if necessary. He spent last season as Boston's primary shortstop, batting .250 with 13 homers and 60 RBIs in 136 games.

Aviles' deal could be worth $9.25 million if he reaches performance bonuses. The 31-year-old received a $1 million signing bonus. He'll make $1.75 million this season, $3 million in 2014 with the Indians holding a $3.5 million option in 2015.

By signing Aviles, the Indians avoided going to salary arbitration for the 22nd straight season. 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).

The versatile may also get some at_bats as designated hitter this season as new manager Terry Francona has said he may use several players in the DH role.
