According to Andy Martino of the Daily News the Mets are considering bringing back Endy Chavez.  Prior to his first stint with the Mets Chavez was a weak hitting, defensive minded, back-up outfielder.  In 2006 he appeared in 133 games and hit .306, since then he has hit .288 with the Mets, Mariners and Rangers.  Last season he played in 83 games hitting .301, 66 of those games were in center field. Endy has always been a fan favorite who might just give the org. a little good will towards the fanbase.

According to one high-ranking team insider, the Mets are open to a second stint in Flushing for the free agent outfielder, and have discussed Chavez — albeit in a very informal and preliminary way — with agent Peter Greenberg. Although there have not yet been any serious talks or negotiations, Mets brass considers Chavez a fit for the 2012 roster. It remains to be seen whether the sides will agree on Chavez’s value. source Daily News
