Five Teams Eyeing Endy Chavez

Five teams are eyeing free agent outfielder Endy Chavez, reports Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports: the Mets, Mariners, Blue Jays, Astros, and Royals.  Chavez had surgery for a torn ACL in July, and Morosi says he could be ready in April or May.

Chavez, 32, doesn't offer much offensively.  His calling card is his defense, which has historically been strong at all three outfield positions.  The question is whether his defense will still be an asset post-knee surgery.
