Jesse Chavez avoids arbitration with Athletics

Both the Oakland Athletics Twitter account and that of Jane Lee (@JaneMLB) have reported that relief pitcher Jesse Chavez has avoided arbitration with the team, agreeing to a one-year contract.

Chavez, going into his age-30 season, spent the last season in the Oakland bullpen, posting a 2-4 record and a 3.92 ERA over 57.1 IP. He is eligible for free agency in 2017.
