Mets Sign Catcher Raul Chavez To Minor League Deal

According to an official tweet, the Mets have signed catcher Raul Chavez to a minor league deal with an invite to spring training.

Chavez, most recently of the Blue Jays, doesn't hit much, rarely walks, and will be 37 in March. He wasn't included in Beyond the Boxscore's year-end defensive ratings because he spent the year with Toronto's Triple-A affiliate in Las Vegas. Mike Rogers's 2002-2009 rankings from Bless You Boys have Chavez well above average and the 2009 Fan Scouting Report ranked Chavez 8th among all big league catchers. Looks like an aging, no-hit, all-glove backup catcher.
