Chavez interests me and I think he could possibly be a decent part-time player, but there isn't room for him in AAA. Getting Francisco 500 ABs and every inning defensively at third is way more important to me than a reclamation project. I wonder if he would be cool with trying to get his swing back in AA? I doubt it and I doubt Cincinnati would interest him above teams with glaring holes at 3b.
