MLB: Diamondbacks, Chavez agree to deal

The Arizona Diamondbacks have agreed to a one-year, $3 million deal with free agent third baseman Eric Chavez.

Chavez, who turns 35 on Friday, had a solid season offensively for the New York Yankees in 2012, finishing with 16 home runs and a batting line of .281/.348/.496 in only 313 plate appearances.

The veteran slugger is expected to platoon with current Diamondbacks third baseman Chris Johnson.

In other Diamondbacks related news, the club also signed backup catcher Wil Nieves to a one-year, $800k deal.
