SEATTLE (AP) - Outfielder Endy Chavez is remaining with the Seattle Mariners and will report to spring training next month with a minor league contract.

The agreement was announced on Thursday, giving Seattle additional outfield depth.

Chavez hit .267 for Seattle last year with two home runs and 14 RBIs in 266 at-bats over 97 games. He played all three outfield positions, with most of his time coming in right field.

Chavez, who turns 36 on Feb. 7, has played for seven big league teams.
