Chavez, 33, has been limited to 154 games in the past four years due to numerous injuries, primarily neck and back problems. The six-time Gold Glove third baseman ends his 13-year tenure with the Athletics, during which he batted .267/.343/.478 with 230 home runs.
Belliard, 35, is a 13-year veteran who was released by the Dodgers in September due to concerns about his conditioning and his .216 average. The Yankees would be his seventh major-league team. ESPNDeportes.com reports that Belliard would make $825,000 if he makes the big-league team.
