Royals release Endy Chavez

8 Comments

Kansas City released 35-year-old outfielder Endy Chavez, who was trying to win a bench spot after signing a minor-league deal in December.

Chavez had a nice season for the Rangers in 2011, but hit just .203 with a .515 OPS in 64 games for the Orioles last year and was even worse during a brief stint at Triple-A.

This could be the end of the line for Chavez, who managed to carve out an 11-year career and quite a few memorable moments for a guy with a sub-.700 OPS.
