Report: Orioles to sign OF Endy Chavez

New, comments

From MLB Trade Rumors

The Orioles and Endy Chavez have agreed to a contract, pending a physical, agent Peter Greenberg told Alexis Espejo L. of Lider en Deportes (Spanish link).The report did not include terms of the contract.

Chavez will be 34 years old next season and will, I assume, serve as the fourth outfielder for the Orioles in 2012. That would mean that barring other moves, the Orioles plan on playing Nolan Reimold in left field, which of course is fine with me.

In ten seasons, Chavez has a hitting line of .274/.313/.373. Last year he amassed 274 plate appearances for the Texas Rangers. Wait...the Texas Rangers? I think this will bring the total of ex-Rangers on the Orioles to 4,234.

It's hard to get worked up over this transaction in either direction. It's just another forty-degree day, pretty much.
