Report: M’s still considering bringing back Chavez

Though the Mariners have a plethora of outfielders heading into Spring Training — Nelson Cruz, Justin Ruggiano and Seth Smith are all now in the mix, along with incumbents Dustin Ackley and Austin Jackson — they are reportedly still interested in reuniting with Endy Chavez.

ESPN.com‘s Jerry Crasnick reported Tuesday that Chavez, 36, would likely have to sign a Minor League deal with an invite to Spring Training and try to win a spot.

The veteran utility man has spent his last two seasons with Seattle, appearing in 177 games. He also spent time with the Mariners in 2009. Last season, he hit .276 with a .688 OPS and saw action at all three outfield spots.
