In a move that isn't entirely surprising considering his early success out of the bullpen, right-hander Jesse Chavez has rejoined the Oakland A's rotation due to some Sunday roster moves.
After a tough start on Saturday, young starter Kendall Graveman was optioned to Triple-A Nashville, the A's announced:
That move opened up a rotation spot, and Susan Slusser of the San Francisco...
Yes, it’s early. We’re just into the second week of the 2015 MLB season, and most teams have 155 games left to play.

Occasionally, there’s a Jesse Chavez.
The Oakland A’s right-hander is getting his...
Oakland A’s newest starter, right-handed pitcher Jesse Chavez, is finally making a name for himself in the major leagues.
