ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick reports that the Mariners have signed outfielder Endy Chavez to a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training.

Chavez, who turns 36 on February 7, has spent the last three seasons in part-time roles with the Rangers, Orioles, and Mariners. In those three seasons, he has posted an aggregate .265/.290/.353 line in 722 trips to the plate. He can play all three spots in the outfield with varying degrees of effectiveness.

    I can’t believe they outbid Amaro.

    Endy was the M’s most reliable OF last year. Admittedly a pretty low bar, but it will be good to have him around again.

    All problems solved now! Good luck Robbie, 75 wins and 3rd place finish

    I meant 4th place. An M’s fan can dream!

    Ok, now that Endy Chavez is signed the M’s are complete and ready to make that run in 2014 for 4th place. The Vegas oddsmakers have them at a 30 to 1to win the World series. This is that perfect time to hock all your worldly goods and bet on it! It is a done deal, It was promised when the M’s picked up Robbie Cano. This is the year baby.

    Would have rather they signed hometown guy Grady Sizemore. At least he has some upside. Between Sizemore and Franklin Gutierrez maybe one would be healthy at a time.

      Buy them both and use one for parts to keep the other going.

        Yep we already bought Gutierrez. With Sizemore we maybe could have cobbled together the equivalent of a ’79 Ford Pinto hatchback station wagon.

        Sizemore went to HS just north of Seattle, he actually had a scholarship to UW to play QB that he passed-up when drafted by Cleveland.

        We tried it with Jason Bay last year. He is a Canadian guy, but makes his offseason home in Seattle. That didn’t work out, but still woulda like to see them take a flyer on Grady. Red Sox just did. Endy would be a nice 4th OF, but Seattle needs to worry about 1-3 first…….
