Diamondbacks making a push to re-sign Eric Chavez

1 Comment

Eric Chavez has been linked to a half-dozen teams, but Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports that re-signing the veteran corner infielder “has become a priority” for the Diamondbacks.

Chavez is in an interesting spot because his recent performance in part-time roles has certainly been good enough to justify a full-time role, but given his inability to stay healthy for most of his career perhaps playing every day at age 36 isn’t the best idea anyway.

This year Chavez hit .281 with nine homers and an .810 OPS in 254 plate appearances for Arizona and he was even better in similar playing time for the Yankees in 2012.
