Diamondbacks, INF Chavez finalize deal

PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Diamondbacks and infielder Eric Chavez finalized a $3 million, one-year contract Saturday.

The 35-year-old Chavez hit .281 with 16 homers in 278 at_bats last season for the New York Yankees, playing first and third base and at designated hitter.

Chavez was a six-time Gold Glove third baseman with Oakland before injuries sidelined him for significant time for several years. But he found success in a limited role with New York, seeing more playing time after Alex Rodriguez broke his hand in late July.

Chavez, who lives in the Phoenix area, will likely serve in a reserve role for Arizona, which has Chris Johnson at third base and Paul Goldschmidt at first.

In 1,491 games with Oakland and New York, Chavez has a .267 average with 248 home runs and 850 RBIs.
