The Texas Rangers and Jesse Chavez just can’t quit one another: the Rangers and Chavez have agreed to a two-year contract in the range of $8 million. That via a report from Jeff Passan.
Chavez, 35, signed a one-year $1 million deal with Texas last year, waiting until February to ink the pact. Then he was traded to the Cubs in late July. He was pretty good in Texas, posting a 3.51 ERA in 30 games but he was on fire with the Cubs, allowing only five earned runs in 39 innings pitched over 32 games (1.15 ERA).
2019 will be his 12th season in the bigs. Over his career, which has taken him to nine different teams, Chavez is 38-53 with a 4.45 ERA in 415 games, mostly as a reliever.
