Endy Chavez On Mets Radar
Andy Martino of the New York Daily News, says the Mets are tossing around the idea of bringing back outfielder Endy Chavez.
According to one high-ranking team insider, 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.
Last season Endy played in 83 games and batted .301. He still holds a special place in Mets fans’ hearts for his leaping, over the wall, snow-cone catch – robbing Scott Rolen of a home run in Game 7 of the 2006 NLCS.
Chavez, who will be 34 in February, stayed with the Mets through the 2008 season, and played for Seattle in 2009. This year, he batted .301 in 256 at-bats for the American League champion Texas Rangers, and played all three outfield positions, including 66 games in center.
