 Biographical Information
Infielder Ramón Aviles played parts of four seasons in the majors and later was a longtime minor league manager.
Originally signed by the Boston Red Sox, Aviles began his pro career in 1970 with the Greenville Red Sox. He made his big league debut with Boston in 1977, getting into just one game for the club. Prior to the 1978 season, his contract was sold to the Philadelphia Phillies. He made it back to the majors in 1979 and saw his most big league action the next summer, backing up shortstop Larry Bowa and second baseman Manny Trillo. Following the 1981 season, he was dealt to the Texas Rangers for Dave Rajsich, but he ended his playing days back in the Philadelphia chain in 1983.
