Dodgers signed INF Aaron Miles to a minor league contract.
Miles is already at the team's complex in Arizona, presumably to participate in extended spring training. He will likely soon head to Triple-A Albuquerque in the hopes of eventually joining the major league roster. The 35-year-old infielder batted .275/.314/.346 in 490 plate appearances last season for the Dodgers.

Aaron Miles' agent told MLBTradeRumors.com Thursday that his client is still hoping to play this year.
Miles failed to attract interest on the free agent market this winter and spring after batting just .275/.314/.346 in 490 plate appearances last season for the Dodgers. The 35-year-old middle infielder isn't much of a defender either and could struggle to find a minor league deal.

Aaron Miles went 0-for-5 and struck out three times Friday against the Astros.
Miles had a great run in the first half, but it's come crashing down in a big way lately. Not only has he hit just .207 since the All-Star break, but with just two walks in 87 at-bats, his OBP sits at .222. He'll likely play more often than not with Juan Uribe and Dee Gordon set to miss the next two weeks, but he's a major liability right now.

Aaron Miles went 2-for-5 with his 30th RBI in Los Angeles' loss to the Phillies on Monday.
Miles is now up to 92 hits through his first 94 games this season, and batting .297/.316/.361. He's still not worth a look outside of deeper NL-only leagues, but that has to be far more production than the Dodgers were expecting when they signed him to a minor-league deal in February.

Aaron Miles left Tuesday's game against the Mets with a bruised right elbow after being hit by a pitch by Mike Pelfrey in the bottom of the fifth inning.
Miles was taken for precautionary X-rays, though the results won't be known until Wednesday. It's unfortunate timing for the veteran infielder, who is hitting .438 (32-for-73) over his last 24 games.

Aaron Miles went 4-for-4 with a stolen base Friday against the Angels.
Miles has the ugliest .324 average one will ever see -- he has all of four walks and eight extra-base hits in 216 at-bats -- but it's pretty much impossible to hit .324 and not be pretty useful, especially if one is playing a decent second base in the process. With Jamey Carroll also performing well, the Dodgers are going to need to put Juan Uribe on the bench after Rafael Furcal returns.
