Alex Avila is Let Go by his Father Again

Alex Avila may be getting the impression his father doesn’t like him.  Alex was traded by the Detroit Tigers to the Chicago Cubs on July 31.  What makes this transaction unique is Alex’s father, Al, is the General Manager of the Tigers and responsible for making the deal.

But this isn’t the first time Alex has been dumped by his father.  After the 2015 season, Alex, then playing catcher for the Tigers, was granted free agency by his father, as the Tigers went in different direction at the catcher position.

Alex’s grandfather, Rafael Avila, was also involved in professional baseball as a scout and executive in the Los Angeles Dodgers organization.
