Respectfully disagree. To me Chavez has looked pretty slow in the outfield and it seems like he's lost a step which is no surprise considering his "advanced" age.
Even if he did play good defense he would still be a negative WAR player at this point and is replacement level at best. Not even good enough for a fourth OF.
can you give me an example of when he looked slow?
I can recall off the top of my head at least 5 plays where he saved runs in LF at the beginning of the season.
Again, not my favorite option for LF, but his defense is not bad.
and that was not meant to come off rudely lol.
