BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Despite advancing age, Chavez is still a capable fourth outfielder. Best known for his spectacular defensive plays in his younger days, he has held onto enough of those skills to continue to be an asset with the glove. His offense—never a particularly strong part of his game—has begun to decline of late; Chavez has chased more pitches over the past couple of years, leading to more strikeouts and fewer walks, and he'll need to reverse that or risk his bat being too much of a liability to justify his defensive contributions. His wheels have defended well enough against rust so that he can still beat out some groundballs, which he hits a lot of, and that gives him a small buffer to work with.
2012 Chavez is a quality bench outfielder who has contact ability, versatility in the outfield, and enough speed left in his 33-year-old legs to force you to notice. Pushed into the most games since his 2008 season with the Mets thanks to injuries to Julio Borbon and Josh Hamilton, Chavez provided a service for the Rangers that was slightly above replacement level. Texas let Endy go with Leonys Martin approaching major league readiness, but the Orioles scooped him up and could give him the strong side of a left field platoon with Nolan Reimold.
2011 After spending most of last season recovering from knee surgery, outfielder Endy Chavez will attempt to make a push for a role on the active roster in 2011, but with better options on the depth chart, it looks like an uphill battle for the 33-year-old Venezuelan.
2010 As the perception of defense has evolved in recent seasons, there has been a parallel rise in Chavez appreciation. Chavez emphasizes hitting the ball on the ground, but it's tough to make a living that way as one ages and speed ebbs; he doesn't hit the ball hard in enough other situations, nor is he patient enough, to have any offensive value. Still, he's been in some demand in recent years because of his ballhawking abilities. He missed most of the 2009 season with a torn ACL and MCL after colliding with a firm and unyielding Yuniesky Betancourt. He's expected to recover in time for spring training, but if his speed in the outfield has been affected then the one reason to tolerate his lack of bat will have vanished, soon to be followed by Endy himself.
2009 "The Catch" from Game Seven of the 2006 NLCS has forever endeared Chavez to Mets fans, and that play certainly wasn't a fluke: Chavez is among the best corner outfield defenders in baseball. But he hasn't been able to carry over his career offensive production from '06, as his bat weakened considerably again last year. Chavez saw significant action in right when Church was out of commission, starting 40 games in June and July, but his tepid hitting earned him just 20 PAs (and zero starts) in the season's final month and a half. He's a decent fourth outfielder, and will fill that role in Seattle after being moved in the Putz deal.
2008 One of the surprising heroes of the 2006 season (especially the postseason), Chavez went back to being Endy Chavez this year, serving as a decent reserve outfielder before a severe hamstring injury in June all but wiped out the remainder of his season. Chavez could warm benches for another five years or so, but he'll never have a season like 2006 again.
2007 Chavez is on the short list of 2006 Stars/2007 Minor Leaguers. Writing about Endy in the 2005 edition of this book, we said, `This is a dangerous player. His batting average is high enough that he looks like a good enough hitter. He`ll steal enough bases that you`ll want him for that . . . Managers bite on these kinds of players, and suddenly they`re at the top of the lineup every day. As a result, guys like Chavez have the potential to wreak havoc on a team far out of proportion to their modest talents.` This is doubly true now that Chavez has had a year at the top end of his range, because he`s unlikely to get there again. The acquisition of Ben Johnson from the Padres gives the Mets a good alternative to pushing their luck.
2006 Almost half of Chavez`s at-bats with the Phils came as a pinch-hitter, which is a special kind of self-flagellation for a team in contention until the last day of the season. Chavez is a pathetically bad hitter whose sole value is as a defensive replacement and pinch runner. Non-tendered, he signed with the tools-happy Mets in December.
2005 This is a dangerous player. His batting average is high enough that he looks like a good enough hitter. He'll steal enough bases that you'll want him for that. His range and speed are good enough that sometimes he'll come in a long way to catch a shallow fly and look like a solid defender. Managers bite on these kinds of players, and suddenly they're at the top of the lineup every day. As a result, guys like Chavez have the potential to wreak havoc on a team far out of proportion to their modest talents. Compared to Jim Bowden, that's small potatoes.
2003 Omar Minaya’s waiver wire pick-up ended a three-month odyssey that took Chavez from Kansas City to Detroit to the Mets, then north of the border. Though Wil Cordero, Andres Galarraga, and Troy O’Leary brought more name value, Chavez is the only one of the four who could have a future. Chavez won the International League batting title in Ottawa last year while handling center field respectably. Called up to the big club, he fared well, grabbing just enough playing time as the starting center fielder to at least hint at future success. Chavez should get first crack at the job on Opening Day, unless the Expos have three great prospects and $100 million lying under a rock in Verdun for a Carlos Beltran trade. We’d like Chavez’s long-term outlook a lot better if he’d add 30 walks a season.
2002 Timo Perez Lite was taken from the Mets in the Rule 5 draft, and the Royals eventually traded Michael Curry to the Mets so they could send Chavez to the minors and still keep him. Curry is probably the better player, despite being a lesser physical talent and carrying an "attitude" label. Like the original Timoniel, Chavez's upside is as a fourth outfielder. Waived by the Royals, he'll show up in the Tigers' camp, where he only has to beat out Jose Macias to be the starting center fielder.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-08-06 16:30:00 (link to chat)Jordan, what's the best analogy to describe being a Mariners fan that you can come up with?
(Patrick from Seattle)
It could take several more decades of losing before we can properly identify an accurate analogy. There was something very surreal about watching a playoff contender bat Endy Chavez leadoff for over a month straight. (Cespedes Family BBQ)
2012-03-23 12:00:00 (link to chat)Jason, what are some of the most important spring battles yet to be decided, where the winner might be worth $5+ just for being a full-timer?
(Sky from The Roc, NY)
If the Orioles end up stealing PA's from Reimold to give to Endy Chavez simply because they want a leadoff guy while Roberts is out, there's one. Sean Rodriguez now will get a majority of the playing time early at shortstop with Brignac out with the foot issue and Rodriguez's struggles vs RHP should hold down his value enough at the draft table where he could go for $5-7 and then double that in season because he has the potential to go 20/15 (Jason Collette)
2012-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Endy Chavez going to get 400 abs this year?
(Abe Froman from Chicago)
I’ll give him 300, but not 400. With Wilson Betemit signing in Baltimore this off-season, it seems more likely that Nolan Reimold gets a lot of the LF time, also spending some time at DH with Betemit and giving Endy some starts in LF on those days. If Chris Davis happens to crash and burn or get injured, it’s possible Betemit plays first/third, Reimold DHs, and Endy plays close to full-time, though. (Derek Carty)
2012-02-02 15:00:00 (link to chat)does Endy Chavez have 30 sbs left in him?
(Bernie Fine from Syracuse)
Bernie, for shame...

Endy might steal 30 bags combined over the remainder of his MLB career, however long that may be, but it's hard to see a scenario where he gets that in a single season ever again. He hasn't had more than 12 in a year since 2004, y'know. (Cory Schwartz)
2012-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Reimold and Valencia for 2012?
(stewbies from Rochester, NY)
Rumor is Reimold could be the bad-half of a LF platoon with Endy Chavez, but the DH spot is open for the time being. If he plays, I like him and think he could be an AL-only value. Valencia is ok, but I don't really see him improving a whole lot this year. (Derek Carty)
2011-04-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Ha! I showed you! Josh just got another owie and now I have a job, so nyah! I'll bet I keep the job over my stiffest competion, Endy Chavez. But wait...what about this Cuban guy Martin? Uh oh....
(Julio Borbon from Arlington)
A new challenger! Martin will start in the minors, but it might not be long before he's pushing Borbon. (Ben Lindbergh)
2009-12-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)Alex Rios and now Juan Pierre? Who's advising the White Sox, Neel Kashkari?
(matuszek from Baltimore)
Chuck Tanner? Steve Boros? It's kooky, but then we're in a situation where we're debating the merits of Juan Pierre at $5 million plus versus a non-answer like Podzilla for under $2 million. Picking the former's the better answer if you start with the assumption neither's an offensive asset, since Podsednik's not a CF any more, but for that much? Why not check out Coco Crisp or Endy Chavez? (Christina Kahrl)
2009-12-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)In looking at the market for readily available corner bats, who should the M's be targeting for left field? They seem to prefer spending their cash on Figgins (done), a #2 starter (Lackey or a trade for Lowe?) and perhaps bringing back Beltre. What's a good option? They need some affordable pop behind their stellar 1-2.
(Derrth from Chicago)
Well, their apparent interest in Bay is one indication. I do think the Mariners recognize how critical a superior outfield defense was to their 2010, and would like to see a healthy Endy Chavez, or a skills clone, out in left field, with them getting increased offense from the infield corners. Nick Johnson would be a nice fit.

There are not that many good players in free agency this year. Teams are going to have to trade or hope for non-tenders to fill many of their holes. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-06-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)The Wieters homer barely got out -- Endy Chavez would've hauled it in, that's for sure.
(Jason from NY)
My love for Endy's glove knows no bounds. (Marc Normandin)
2009-04-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)Just how good of a defensive outfield is Endy Chavez, Ichiro and Gutierrez? Is it better than the one the Mets fielded when they had Beltran, Chavez and Carlos Gomez at Shea?
(Mike from Queens)
Certainly seems as though it should be very good, but I have my doubts that trio can hit enough to survive a significant portion of the season intact. The Mets' version didn't last long either. That configuration only started about half a dozen games together according to the Baseball-Reference.com lineups info. (Jay Jaffe)
2008-10-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Senor: We just got internet in Venezuela and I finally read the terrible things you wrote about my boy Endy that everyone has been telling me about. My question is a two-parter: Why do you hate Endy Chavez, and do you think the $700 billion bailout will provide our failing economic system the support it needs to help us avoid a prolonged recession?
(Mrs. Chavez from Venezuela)
I can't escape that Endy Chavez profile...I love Endy! And that's in spite of what he can't do. As for the bailout, I'll answer it as if I was in a political debate, by answering another question you didn't ask! (Marc Normandin)
2008-06-20 13:30:00 (link to chat)Other than Ramon Castro and maybe Endy Chavez, has there been another player on the Mets' bench this year that would have a job on any other team? (As a player, not as a coach.)
(Amos from New York)
Oh, the Mets aren't nearly the only team to value experience that highly. I've no doubt that Anderson, with a rep as a pinch-hitter, would be employed.

Still handling some stuff. You'll have my full attention shortly. (Joe Sheehan)
