Seattle Mariners re-sign Endy Chavez for 2014 MLB season

Seattle Mariners news has the team re-signing Endy Chavez. The free agent outfielder will reportedly come to the Mariners as a minor league free agent for 2014. According to a report from Wednesday (Jan. 22), Chavez will also receive an invitation to Spring Training. This will be his third different stint with the team and he could end up starting the season in Tacoma.

Latest Nick Franklin Trade Rumors

Last season, Chavez started the season in the minor leagues as well, but injuries resulted in him getting a call-up early on. He didn't even spend a full month at Triple-A Tacoma before Michael Saunders got hurt and the team needed to call up someone to provide depth. Injuries to Franklin Gutierrez guaranteed that Chavez would be receiving even more playing time. He ended up playing in 97 games during the 2013 MLB season, posting a .267 batting average and providing a lot of late-inning defense in the outfield.

This Seattle Mariners news might be considered minor, but he will certainly be another insurance policy in case the new crop of outfielders cannot stay healthy. The team also re-signed Gutierrez, traded for Logan Morrison, and will have Saunders returning with a nice salary bump. Currently Dustin Ackley will also serve as one of the primary outfielders to start the season. Other outfielders on the 40-man roster that could see playing time include Corey Hart, Xavier Avery, Julio Morban, Abraham Almonte, and Stefen Romero.
