Its being reported that the Yankees have come to terms with Eric Chavez. Details on the contract are forthcoming but apparently its a guaranteed Major league deal worth 900,000. Chavez batted .263 with the Yankees last year in 58 games before missing the remainder of the season due to injury. Chavez is a plus defender and a great clubhouse presence. I am glad that they were able to work out a deal. This takes a bit of pressure off A-Rod and may afford him some extra rest that will keep him healthy and productive for the entire season.
