1057topper Orioles Sign OF Endy Chavez To 1 Year Deal

BALTIMORE (AP) — Free-agent outfielder Endy Chavez has agreed to a one-year contract with the Baltimore Orioles.

An experienced and dependable fill-in, Chavez batted .301 with five homers and 27 RBIs in 83 games for the AL champion Texas Rangers last season.

Dan Duquette, the Orioles’ new executive vice president of baseball operations, says Chavez is a “tremendous defender” who gives the team “needed depth” in the outfield.

A left-handed hitter with speed, Chavez, 33, is a .274 career hitter in 10 major league seasons with Kansas City, Montreal/Washington, Philadelphia, the New York Mets, Seattle and Texas. He is best known for his spectacular catch with the Mets in Game 7 of the 2006 NL championship series against St. Louis.
