The six-time Gold Glove winner batted .263 with two home runs and 26 RBIs in 58 games last season for the Bronx Bombers.  He missed nearly three months with a left foot fracture.

The 34-year-old Chavez was originally drafted by the Oakland Athletics with the 10th overall pick in the 1996 First-Year Player Draft. During his 14-year Major League career, Chavez has hit .267 with 232 homers and 813 RBIs.
