JESSE CHAVEZ RUMORS & GOSSIP

Yoenis Cespedes day to day with sprained thumb

Oakland Athletics slugger Yoenis Cespedes homered twice and tied a career high five RBIs before leaving with a sprained thumb during Wednesday night’s 9-7 victory over the Houston Astros. X-rays were negative and Cespedes is considered day to day. The left fielder went down as he hit a check-swing groundout in the fifth inning.  Manager Bob Melvin said that Cespedes hurt his...

Chavez pitches A's to 5-0 win over Giants

An easy takeaway from the Battle of the Bay opener might be that the A's and Giants are going in opposite directions. The A's are rolling through just about everyone right now, except for the Tigers. Since Detroit swept Oakland last week, the A's have won five in a row and have surrendered just four runs in the process - zero on Monday night at the Coliseum in a 5-0...

Jesse Chavez Got Over Bitterness, Got Better

“A chance — that’s the biggest thing, an extended chance,” that’s all Jesse Chavez wanted. For a pitcher who was never once on any team’s top 20 prospect list, a pitcher who has taken seven years and five organizations to pick up his first 300 innings, a pitcher who was an unknown until this year […]

Jesse Chavez flashes quick reflexes on comebacker

If Jesse Chavez was a split second slower or Michael Saunders’ line drive was hit a hair differently, this could have been a scary moment. Instead, it’s an incredible defensive play. In the 4th inning of Monday night’s game in Oakland, Saunders hit a screamer right at Chavez on the mound. Luckily, Chavez was able to get his glove up in time — not only was he able to save...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: What in the Jesse Chavez Is Going On Here?

Typically when a 30 year old pitcher gets off to a hot start in April, we can look at a few numbers to get a feel for what’s going on. There’s usually a track record to fall back on, some statistical analysis that can be done that makes evaluating him easier and projectable moving forward. Occasionally, there’s a Jesse Chavez. The Oakland A’s right-hander is getting his...

Oakland A’s: Could this be Jesse Chavez’s breakout season?

Jesse Chavez Oakland A’s newest starter, right-handed pitcher Jesse Chavez, is finally making a name for himself in the major leagues. Chavez joined the Athletics organization in 2012 and immediately became their designated long-reliever.

Chavez stays sharp as A's sweep Astros, 4-1

Jesse Chavez, pitcher of the century? That's a bit of hyperbole for a 30-year-old right-hander who had made all of two career starts before this season. But by limiting the Astros to one earned run in six innings in the A's 4-1 win at the Coliseum on Sunday afternoon, Chavez accomplished something that no Athletics pitcher has done since at least 1914. He was on the roster...

A's Jesse Chavez ignored thin chances to become starter

After kicking around the fringes of the major leagues for six years, during which his wife, Crystal, worked as a longshoreman to help support the family, Jesse Chavez finally has a home in a starting rotation. Finding such a spot at the age of 30 is most unusual, but there's not much in the way of routine when it comes to Chavez, who will start Wednesday's game at Minnesota...

Oakland Athletics Recall Pitcher Jesse Chavez
