NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The Yankees need someone to step in at third base for Alex Rodriguez, who could miss as much as the first half of the season with a tear in his left hip.

Jeff Keppinger? He’s off the table, too.

Chavez won’t be back with the Yankees, instead agreeing with the Arizona Diamondbacks on a one-year, $3 million deal, according to WFAN and CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman.

The 34-year-old played in 113 games for the Yankees last season, batting .281 with 16 home runs and 37 RBIs.

Meanwhile, Keppinger agreed to a three-year, $12 million deal with the Chicago White Sox, Heyman reported.

One-time Yankees nemesis Kevin Youkilis and Mark Reynolds are still on the board.

“There’s not a lot of choices out there,” general manager Brian Cashman said Tuesday. “It’s a very limited sandbox to play in.”
