Eric Chavez Again Considering Retirement

Athletics third baseman Eric Chavez is pondering retirement, according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle.  Chavez, who is trying to recover from two bulging disks in his neck, told the newspaper in an e-mail that he is considering calling it quits.

"I've pondered retirement," the 32-year-old said. "I'd lie if I said I didn't. The truth of the matter is that I don't know what I'm going to do."

Chavez has undergone two back surgeries and three shoulder surgeries in an effort to rejoin the A's.  His most recent setback occurred in May when he suffered a neck injury, one that he was determined to bounce back from.

The six-time Gold Glove third baseman was relegated to designated hitter this season where he hit .234/.276/.333 with one homer in 33 games.  According to Baseball-Reference, Chavez has earned more than $75MM in his career, thanks in large part to the six-year, $66MM extension he signed with Oakland in March of 2004.
