Endy Chavez Stealing a Job

Where They Are Now: Endy Chavez

Former fan favorite Endy Chavez is making the most of his opportunity to play in Seattle, batting .405 with 15 hits and 3 stolen bases in the first nine games of the season.

He’s hitting at the top of the order — in the #2 spot behind Ichiro Suzuki — and igniting the offense for the surging Mariners, who sit atop the AL West with a 7-2 record.

Here’s to Endy, and hoping he can keep it up over a full season!
