Via Mark Feinsand and Pete Caldera, Eric Chavez‘s agent informed Brian Cashman that his client intends to play next season. Chavez was reportedly giving retirement serious consideration, but he also indicated a willingness to return to New York should he not hang up the spikes.
“I loved everything about him,” said Cashman, who also hedged his bets a bit by saying he wasn’t sure if there was a match between the two sides. The Yankees are going to need a caddy for Alex Rodriguez next season and it’d be nice to have a left-handed bat off the bench, two birds that could be killed with one Chavez stone. I don’t think there will be much a rush here though, I would be surprised if there’s a high demand for his services.
