  • Michael Chavis Clears Waivers, Elects Free Agency

    Headshot for Michael Chavis

    Washington Nationals infielder Michael Chavis has cleared outright waivers and has elected to become a free agent. A once-promising prospect in the Boston Red Sox organization, the now 28-year-old appeared in 48 games with the Nationals in 2023 and limped to a .242 average with a pair of homers, one stolen base, and a .622 OPS across 96 trips to the plate. It was the fifth consecutive underwhelming season for the 2014 first-round pick as he now owns a career .238 average, 42 HR, eight SB, and a .684 OPS across 1,186 plate appearances, production that grades out 20% below the league average, as per his 80 wRC+. However, he has handled himself well throughout his minor-league career, so it's quite possible he will latch on with another club for infield depth while potentially heading overseas for the 2024 season.

In the baseball industry, teams and agents determine arbitration salaries by identifying comparable players. To project the entire arbitration class in this way would take a massive amount of time and…
