Robbie Aviles was a highly regarded pitcher in high school and was expected to be drafted in the 1st or 2nd round. Unfortunately, he suffered a partial tear of his elbow ligament about a week before the 2010 amateur draft. Despite this setback, the Cleveland Indians drafted Aviles in the 7th round. After fully recovering from Tommy John surgery, Aviles began rookie ball with the AZL Indians in 2011. He pitched in the Indians' minor league system until 2017 and made a brief appearance in AAA that season. Overall Aviles pitched to a 24-7 record in seven seasons with a 3.91 ERA.
Aviles began his post-playing career as a pitching coach at the Rockland Peak Performance training facility in 2018. The Baltimore Orioles hired him in 2019 to be the Aberdeen IronBirds pitching coach. Aviles was scheduled to move up to the Delmarva Shorebirds in 2020 before the coronavirus pandemic caused the minor league season to be cancelled. He then did coach the Shorebirds in 2021.
