The New York Yankees have reached a $900,000, one-year deal to keep backup infielder Eric Chavez.
Chavez hit .263 with two homers and 26 RBIs last year for the Yanks. The six-time Gold Glove winner only played in 58 games after he suffered a broken bone in his left foot.
His deal is subject to him passing a physical.
This is a great move for the Yanks. Chavez is a veteran with a lot of invaluable experience. Last year he came in and did his job, but he is always an injury risk. To think what his career could be like if he weren’t injured so many times in his career.
Hopefully he can stay healthy and have a successful year for the Yanks, in what will probably be his final season as a major leaguer.
