According to beat writer Wally Matthews of ESPNNewYork.com, Chavez’s agent has been telling front office executives that the 33-year-old will “definitely” return for his 15th major league season and is ready to begin reviewing free agent offers.
Chavez registered a poor .263/.320/.356 batting line across 175 plate appearances this year and missed nearly three months with a foot fracture, but he should be able to find an incentives-based one-year contract from a team desperate for corner infield depth. It’s not yet known whether the Yankees have interest.
