PHOENIX (AP) Eric Chavez has reached an agreement to re-sign with the Arizona Diamondbacks, a person with knowledge of the situation said Wednesday.
The 36-year-old third baseman reportedly had been courted by several other teams but decided to return to Arizona on a one-year deal. Chavez has had his home in nearby Scottsdale for several years.
The person who confirmed the agreement asked not to be identified because Chavez has not signed the contract. The agreement was first reported by cbssports.com.
