Alex Avila is the new Miguel Montero / David Ross, a veteran presence behind the plate and a mentor for Willson Contreras. He is the fourth Cub this year with a last name that starts with the letter A. I wonder what the record is for that?
He also looks like GI Joe with life-like hair.
Lefty reliever Justin Wilson also came over with Avila from the Tigers.
He's not been very impressive so far, having to yet record a 1-2-3 inning and giving up runs or blowing a save in each of his three Cub appearances.
With these two additions, 41 players have suited up thus far for the 2017 Cubs.
