Mets Miss out on Endy Chavez, signs with Orioles


The Orioles and Endy Chavez have agreed to a one-year, $1.5MM major league deal. The deal will also give the outfielder the chance to earn another $500K through performance bonuses.

The Mets showed interest in Chavez earlier this offseason and the Mariners and Rangers were both linked to the veteran recently. The 33-year-old hit .301/.323/.426 with five homers in 274 plate appearances for Texas in 2011.

Chavez has experience at all three outfield positions and played 66 games in center field last season. The veteran could be used to backup Adam Jones in center field or could be used in a platoon with Nolan Reimold in left field.
