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.
