We know Eric Chavez has pondered retirement, but his agent Scott Leventhal told Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald the third baseman hopes to play in 2011. Chavez is having strenuous workouts five days a week at Athletes Performance in Arizona and Leventhal says he's "completely healthy." Chavez, 33 next month, has endured two back surgeries and three shoulder surgeries in his career. Recently he dealt with bulging discs in his neck.
The Dodgers are one team that has considered asking Chavez to work out for them, reports Silverman.
