Diamondbacks sign Yankees third baseman Eric Chavez
Chavez to Diamondbacks for $3 million on a one year deal. Expected to platoon with Johnson at third.— John Gambadoro (@Gambo620) December 5, 2012
Chavez, 34, was with the New York Yankees last season and hit .281 with 16 home runs and 37 RBI in 278 at bats. He bats left-handed, which makes him a good compliment to the right-handed Johnson.
Chavez began his career with the Oakland A's, where he became one of the game's better third baseman. He's a career .267 hitter with 248 home runs and 850 RBI.
