JESSE CHAVEZ RUMORS & GOSSIP

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...

Jesse Chavez: The Out-Of-Nowhere Man

It’s been said umpteen times by baseball scribes, coaches, and front office types alike that you can never have too much pitching. The 2014 Oakland A’s seem determined to put that adage to the test. The A’s were projected to finish at or near the top of the American League West by most pundits in the preseason, but that was before starters Jarrod Parker and A.J. Griffin went...

Pitcher Profile: The Jesse Chavez Experience

More terrible relievers turning into dominant starters, mo problems! So it’s been an up-and-down start to this young season – pretty much all of my sleepers except maybe Corey Kluber (who I still like a lot) are doing great, Nathan Eovaldi still looks pretty good and I remain bullish on him, but Tyson Ross who I bailed on turned in a gem on Saturday. Then to my rankings, where...

A’s Sweep Astros, Chavez Sets Team Record

The A’s completed a three-game sweep against the Astros Sunday afternoon to improve their record on the season to an AL-best 13-5, tying their best start since 1990. A first inning two-run home run off the bat of Josh Donaldson would be all the run support that the A’s would need as Jesse Chavez recorded his first win of the young season in a 4-1 final. Despite coming into Sunday...
