Chavez lands minor-league deal with Royals

The SportsXchange

Outfielder Endy Chavez signed a minor-league deal with the Kansas City Royals, the team confirmed Monday.

The slick-fielding veteran is returning to the team with which he made his major league debut. Chavez played in 29 games for Kansas City in 2001, hitting .208. He figures to compete for a bench role with the Royals in 2013.

Chavez, 34, batted .301 in 83 games with the Texas Rangers in 2011, but he hit just .203 in 64 games for the Baltimore Orioles in 2012.

He also hit just .147 in 15 games at Triple-A in 2012.
