In a move that's far from a surprise, the Yankees have signed Eric Chavez to a one-year, $900,000 major-league deal plus incentives, CBSSports.com insider Jon Heyman reports.

Chavez, 34, hit .263/.320/.356 with two homers in 58 games and 175 plate appearances for the Yankees last season, serving mostly as a fill-in for Alex Rodriguez. He also played first base and DH.

On Tuesday, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said he expected Chavez back with the team.

"The comment on health is spot on.  If he stays healthy he can help for certain.  He was hot when he got hurt last year.  Good guy in the clubhouse.  Nice player.  It's all about health....."

You said it right. But that comment can refer to just about anyone in sports. 

It's all about staying healthy and focused. Kudos to those who can manage to do both. Any chance the Yankees wil try to get Rich Harden? Both guys have seen plenty of time on the DL when with Oakland.

Great clubhouse presence I'm sure the players are thrilled his is back. Of course he is injury prone so you need to be careful but if healthy I like him playing 3rd and 1st to give Arod and Tex a day off.

It's nice to see Chavez back in a Yankee uniform.  He was a solid bat off the bench who can still play pretty good defense at third and first base.  Let's hope he can stay healthy this year!
