And although the A's rallied for four runs in the top of the seventh, the Dodgers countered with five of their own in the bottom half.

"I thought his stuff was pretty good, but he was just missing, just off the corner a couple times," manager Bob Melvin said, per MLB.com. "It looked like he had decent movement, and then when he came onto the plate a little bit more, they got better swings out of them."

A's starter Jesse Chavez hit early and often in loss on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/6/2015) Athletics pitcher Jesse Chavez got knocked around in his start against the Red Sox on Saturday. The right-hander worked five innings, giving up four runs on a season-high 10 hits. He walked one and struck out five. 

Chavez (2-6, 2.51 ERA) got into an early hole when he gave up a two-run home run to Hanley Ramirez in the first inning. He then allowed two more runs in the third, and did not record a 1-2-3 inning all afternoon.

This was a step back for Chavez, who had entered the game having allowed just one unearned run over his last two starts (16 innings).

"The only small difference I saw was he was a little bit up," A's catcher Stephen Vogt said, per MLB.com. "Typically, if he makes a mistake over the plate, it's down, and today he made a couple out and over the plate that he doesn't do, so that was a little different. But if you go back and watch, he still made some good pitches."

He'll look to right the ship in his next start, scheduled for Friday in Los Angeles against the Angels.

"Just tried to take it inning by inning and every at-bat by at-bat," Chavez said, per MLB.com. "I didn't really look into it as, 'Oh, this is my best start of my career,' or anything like that. Just tried to give the guys a good chance to win and try to get them in as quick as possible."

Chavez allowed five hits and walked two, striking out four. His next start is Sunday, against the Yankees.

Athletics confident with Jesse Chavez back in starting rotation


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Athletics manager Bob Melvin made a difficult decision Sunday, optioning pitcher Kendall Graveman to Triple-A, pushing Jesse Chavez back into the starting rotation. He was expected to begin the season as a reliever, but Melvin is confident Chavez can get the job done as a start, reports CSN Bay Area.

"Not only is he able to (start) on a moment's notice, he showed what he's capable of doing in the first half of last year," manager Bob Melvin said. "He was as good as a lot of the guys on our team that (were) All-Stars. We’re lucky to have a guy like Jesse Chavez."

Chavez, who has made one start this season with an 0-1 record and a 0.71 ERA in 12 2/3 innings, won't change anything in his approach.

"It's just a different title and role," Chavez said. "That's how I look at it. I've still gotta go out there and do my job. Throw strikes and give us the best chance to win, and go as deep as I can in the ballgame."


Athletics' Jesse Chavez takes loss in spot start Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Athletics pitcher Jesse Chavez was stuck with a loss in Thursday's spot start, giving up two runs (one earned) on one hit and three walks in six innings while striking out four in his team's 2-0 defeat against the Angels.

"To give up one hit on a moment’s notice to start, I don’t know how you can ask for much more than that," manager Bob Melvin said after the game, per MLB.com.

Chavez (0-1) had racked up 6 2/3 scoreless innings in relief coming into Thursday's start and gave up just one hit on the night, but that one mistake turned out to be a two-run home run by Kole Calhoun, providing the Angels with all the offense they would need for the win. Chavez owns a 0.71 ERA and 13:4 K:BB ratio in 12 2/3 innings. He'll likely head back to the bullpen, provided Jesse Hahn is healthy enough to make his next start.


Athletics' Jesse Hahn to miss start Thursday, Jesse Chavez to fill in


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2015) Athletics pitcher Jesse Hahn will miss his scheduled start Thursday while dealing with a blister on his finger, manager Bob Melvin said, per Bay Area News Group.

Hahn was forced to leave his start Saturday after discovering the blister on his right middle finger. Jesse Chavez, who came on in relief for him Saturday, will start in Hahn's place.

Chavez made 21 starts in 2014, posting an 8-8 record with a 3.45 ERA in 146 innings. 

"Jesse Chavez is a good guy to have in your pocket when something like that happens," Melvin said, per MLB.com. 


Jesse Hahn confident he'll make next start for Athletics


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) Athletics starting pitcher Jesse Hahn was forced to leave Saturday's game with a blister on his right middle finger. 

On Sunday, Hahn was wearing a bandage on the finger, but he was confident he wouldn't miss a start, per the Bay Area News Group.

There's still a possibility that the blister will keep him out of the April 23 start, however, so that the blister can heal fully. Jesse Chavez would get the start in his place, per MLB.com.  


Athletics pitcher Jesse Chavez earns 11-out save Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) Athletics pitcher Jesse Chavez earned his first save of the season Saturday in odd fashion, working 3 2/3 innings in Oakland's 5-0 win over the Royals.

Chavez came on with one out in the fifth after starter Jesse Hahn was forced to leave with a finger injury. Chavez worked strong and efficiently, tossing six strikeouts with just one walk in his outing. Chavez allowed four hits but kept his ERA a perfect 0.00.

"Chavy is the guy for that," said A's manager Bob Melvin to MLB.com. "We got [Tyler] Clippard up at the end, but for him to finish that up and give the bullpen a rest … that was terrific."


Athletics' Jesse Chavez hints he's headed to the bullpen


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2015) Athletics pitcher Jesse Chavez told reporters that "the writing is on the wall" and indicated that he'll likely start the season in the bullpen.

"I think they had their minds made up from the beginning. But we'll see what happens," Chavez said, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Chavez allowed one run on three hits and one walk while striking out six over six innings of work on Wednesday against the Angels. He posted a 4.50 ERA, a 1.75 WHIP and 12:4 K:BB ratio over 16 innings this spring. If he is demoted to the bullpen as a long reliever and spot starter, the A's will likely go will left-hander Drew Pomeranz as their fifth starter.


Athletics' Jesse Chavez happy with spring showing


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2015) Athletics pitcher Jesse Chavez allowed four runs (two earned) on seven hits and two walks in 3 2/3 innings while striking out one in Thursday's 6-4 win over the Giants.

Chavez, who was on the mound just two days after the birth of his daughter, is happy with his performance this spring, the Bay Area News Group reports.

"I feel good," Chavez said. "I’ve put some men on, but I’ve pitched out of some jams. I’ve showed them I won’t let it snowball."

Chavez believes he needs to improve at changing the eye level of batters.

"I’ve got to get them to change eye levels better," Chavez said. "The last two or three starts, I haven’t been able to do that. The pitches that I’m trying to elevate they’re fouling off (instead of swinging and missing) and that runs up my pitch count."

Chavez has posted a 4.50 ERA in 16 innings as he competes for a spot in the rotation.


Athletics' Jesse Chavez away from team for birth of daughter


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
