Chavez Mentoring Wallace?

After reading Belz's interview with BB, it is pretty clear that the organization is looking at keeping Brett Wallace over at 3B. If this is the case, the 3B for the start of the season should be up for grabs, with Wallace seeming to be the guy to take over at somepoint next season, whether it be out of spring training or at some later point. His bat has carried through the minors quickly, and it is his defense that is making some skeptical. The good news is that the A's have a 6 time Gold Glover at 3rd who can help.

 

Here is a video of Brett taking some grounders over at 3rd. While the grounders are pretty light, he seems like his footwork is passable.

 

This and this are examples of Chavvy over at 3rd, and his range and arm strength are on display.

 

In his Major League Career, Chavez achieved a UZR above 10 twice, and a 9.9 once.

Wallace has been criticized on his defense and I guess my question is what do you think the value of having Chavez around is and what can he teach Wallace to make him a legit MLB 3B man?
