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.

Mets Rumors: Jason Bay, Endy Chavez


The Mets have asked around and not received "even minor interest" for Jason Bay, tweets Joel Sherman of the New York Post.

A reunion of Endy Chavez and the Mets seems less likely following the club's acquisition of Andres Torres, tweets Andy Martino of the New York Daily News. The Mariners, Rangers, or Orioles could be landing spots for Chavez, says MLB.com's Anthony DiComo.

ESPN's Adam Rubin tweets a similar notion, stating that a reunion between Chavez and the Mets is "not impossible" but that he's also not forecasting it (Twitter link).

Endy Chavez II : The Return?


The Catch
Andy Martino of the NY Daily News reports that one high-ranking team insider says the Mets are open to a second stint in Flushing for the free agent outfielder, and have discussed Chavez — albeit in a very informal and preliminary way — with agent Peter Greenberg.

Although there have not yet been any serious talks or negotiations, Mets brass considers Chavez a fit for the 2012 roster. It remains to be seen whether the sides will agree on Chavez’s value.

The pursuit of a fourth outfielder would not normally be headline-worthy, but Chavez owns a special place in franchise lore: His leaping, snow-cone catch of what seemed a certain Scott Rolen home run in Game 7 of the 2006 NLCS kept a classic contest close. Although the Mets lost that series on a Yadier Molina home run and a Carlos Beltran strikeout, Chavez's catch remained one of the most iconic plays in postseason history.

I hope Endy will return to the Ny Mets, he was always a favorite of mine.. - DD
