Royals sign outfielder Endy Chavez

4 Comments

Endy Chavez has agreed to a deal with the Royals, according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com.

Chavez had a nice bounceback season with the Rangers in 2011 after missing all of 2010, but then hit just .203 with a .515 OPS in 64 games for the Orioles this year.

He also hit just .147 in 15 games at Triple-A and turns 35 years old in February, so Chavez is purely backup outfielder material.

UPDATE: It’s a minor-league deal, not surprisingly.
