Rangers sign OF Chavez to minor league deal

Feb 15, 2010, 8:13 PM EDT

FOXSports.com’s Jon Paul Morosi reports that the Rangers have signed outfielder Endy Chavez to a minor league contract.
Chavez was Seattle’s primary left fielder for a time last year before going down with a torn ACL in June. Known for his glove, he hit .273/.328/.342 in 161 at-bats before getting hurt. He came in at .267/.308/.330 in 270 at-bats for the Mets in 2008.
As strong as he is defensively, it’s surprising he wasn’t taken more seriously as a fourth outfielder this winter. However, it hurt his case that the knee injury could limit him into 2010. On the Rangers, he’ll be a fifth outfielder on a team that’s already going to struggle to find at-bats for David Murphy.

    It’s a trick, Endy! Don’t fall for it! Once they’re convinced you’re never going to be missed, they’re going to sell you off piece by piece on the transplant organ black market, and ship the rest of you off to an ethanol refinery!
