Kansas City Royals, Endy Chavez agree to deal

Jason Miller

The Royals sign a familiar face from years ago with the reported signing of the versatile Chavez.

The Kansas City Royals have signed outfielder Endy Chavez to a deal, according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports. For the Royals, it's a move that brings back a familiar face -- one they drafted from the New York Mets in the Rule V Draft back in 2000.

The draw for the Royals at this point is the versatility that he provides in the outfield. Last year, the Royals had Jason Bourgeois holding down that role with the team, but he elected free agency rather than an up-and-down season between Triple-A Omaha and the Majors. Chavez now steps into that roel.

Chavez, now 34-years-old, can play all three outfield positions and brings a left-handed bat to the Royals bench. In 11 seasons, Chavez has played with several clubs, including the Expos/Nationals, Phillies, Mets, Rangers, and Orioles.

Last year, Chavez hit .203 in 156 at bats for the Baltimore Orioles. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
