Jesse Chavez strikes out seven in win vs. Astros


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) Athletics pitcher Jesse Chavez earned a win Wednesday, surrendering two earned runs on four hits and two walks in 5 2/3 innings while striking out seven in his team's 9-7 victory over the Astros.

Chavez (8-6) took a no-hitter into the fifth inning before giving up a run in the inning and another in the sixth. He owns a 3.14 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 114:38 K:BB ratio in 120 1/3 innings. Chavez has another matchup with the Astros scheduled for Monday.


A's announce rotation plans for start of second half


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2014) The Athletics announced their post-All-Star-break rotation plans Sunday. Jeff Samardzija has drawn the first start of the second half Friday vs. Baltimore.

Jason Hammel will pitch the second game of the Baltimore series and Sonny Gray will finish off the three-game set. Scott Kazmir will then pitch the opener of a series against Houston July 22. He will be followed by Jesse Chavez before the rotation resets.


Jesse Chavez suffers sixth loss in final start before ASG


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2014) Athletics pitcher Jesse Chavez (7-6) fell one out shy of quality start in a loss to the Mariners in Seattle Saturday night. The right-hander yielded three runs on 10 hits and two walks while striking out six over 5 2/3 innings of a 6-2 defeat.

Chavez has dropped two of his last three starts heading into the break. He owns a 3.14 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP over 19 starts (114 2/3 innings). His next start will come after the All-Star break, though the A's have yet to announce their upcoming pitching plans.

Jesse Chavez probably not a rest-of-season option


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/8/2014) Clearly, you're not cutting Jesse Chavez in Fantasy, particularly if you play in a league where his relief pitcher eligibility means something to you, but his nine-strikeout performance Monday against the Giants really brought into focus just how much his stock has fallen over the last couple months. It wouldn't have been a big deal in April, when he recorded more than a strikeout per inning with regularity, but in the eight starts leading up to Monday's, he averaged just 6.8 strikeouts per nine innings.

And it's not like his walk rate (3.3 per nine) during that stretch was so hot either. He seems to be losing steam after his out-of-nowhere success to begin the season, and while this current version of him is still useful, it may have its limits. Chavez spent most of last season in the bullpen, remember, and as a result, accumulated just 87 1/3 innings between the majors and minors. He's at 109 innings now.

True, he's had other seasons when he started enough to eclipse 130 innings, or at least come close, so I'm not saying 150 or 160 is out of his reach. But 180 may be. I'm guessing it's a big reason why the Athletics felt they had to acquire two arms in the Cubs trade even with Tommy Milone pitching well and Drew Pomeranz recovering from injury.

I'm thinking Chavez cedes his rotation spot to one of those two before the end of August.


Jesse Chavez strikes out nine in win vs. Giants


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Athletics pitcher Jesse Chavez earned a win Monday, giving up just four hits and two walks in six scoreless innings and striking out nine in his team's 5-0 victory over the Giants.

Chavez (7-5) turned in back-to-back mediocre outings heading into Monday but brought his A-game against the Giants, matching his best strikeout total of the season while shutting out the opposition for the third time. He owns a 3.06 ERA and 101:34 K:BB ratio in 109 innings going into Saturday's matchup with the Mariners.


Jesse Chavez edges out Brad Mills for last spot in rotation


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2014) Athletics pitcher Jesse Chavez will stay in the rotation as the fifth starter, edging out Brad Mills, who will move to the bullpen for now, Comcast SportsNet Bay Area reports Saturday.

The A's acquired starters Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel via trade on Friday. Chavez will make his next scheduled start on Monday against San Francisco.

Jesse Chavez falls apart in mauling by Tigers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2014) Athletics starter Jesse Chavez made it two poor outings in a row Wednesday in Detroit. The result was the lowering of his record to 6-5.

Chavez was handed a 2-0 lead in the first inning, but he was trailing by the fourth and collapsed in the sixth with two walks that scored to give him five earned runs allowed in five innings. He gave up eight hits while walking four and fanning five. He has walked 11 in his last 17 innings pitched.

He will try to turn his fortunes around Monday against San Francisco.


Jesse Chavez runs out of gas in no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2014) Athletics pitcher Jesse Chavez pitched well for five innings Friday, before hitting a wall and settling for a no-decision in a 9-5 win over the Marlins.

Chavez shut the Marlins out for five innings and seemed well on his way to another win. He simply ran out of steam in the sixth inning, as the Marlins jumped on him for five straight hits without recording an out before he was chased.

Chavez ended up allowing four runs on six hits in five innings of work, while striking out five batters and walking three. He settled for his second no-decision in a row, as the A's rallied to win, 9-5.

Chavez remains 6-4 through 16 starts, with a 2.94 ERA in 98 innings. His next start is set for Wednesday in Detroit.


A's shuffle rotation plans for upcoming week


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2014) Athletics manager Bob Melvin announced Sunday he has shuffled the rotation after deciding to give starting pitcher Sonny Gray a few extra days to rest with off-days Monday and Thursday. The right-handed hurler has been pushed back to Saturday against the Marlins.

Scott Kazmir will now start Tuesday against the Mets and he will be followed by Brad Mills in the two-game series.

Jesse Chavez, who was scheduled to start Saturday, has been moved up to Friday against Miami. Tommy Milone, who started Sunday against the Red Sox, will then finish off the Marlins series next Sunday.


Jesse Chavez flirts with no-hitter, settles for no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2014) Athletics starter Jesse Chavez was nearly unhittable Saturday, but the bullpen could not preserve his lead in a no-decision.

Chavez opened the game with five no-hit innings, and ended up allowing just three overall in seven shutout innings of work. He struck out four batters and walked four, and exited with a 1-0 lead, but the bullpen was unable to make it stand up in a 2-1 extra-innings lead.

Chavez remains 6-4 on the season with the no-decision, but he did lower his ERA to 2.71. He will look for win No. 7 in his next outing, set for Saturday in Miami.


Brad Mills to start Friday, Jesse Chavez pushed for Saturday vs. Boston


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2014) Newly acquired left-hander Brad Mills will make the start for the Athletics Friday night against the  Red Sox, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The team will also give Jesse Chavez an extra day off on Friday and have him take the hill Saturday against Boston.

Jesse Chavez stays sharp in win over Yankees


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/15/2014) Athletics starter Jesse Chavez put together a quality start on Sunday against the Yankees, improving to 6-4 on the year. The right-hander allowed one earned run on five hits and no walks while striking out four in six innings of a 10-5 victory.

Over his last two starts covering 12 innings, Chavez has allowed only three earned runs. He owns a 2.93 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP in 14 starts (86 innings). He will make his next start Friday at home against Boston.

Jesse Chavez stays sharp in losing effort


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/10/2014) Athletics starter Jesse Chavez twirled a quality start on Monday, but had nothing but a loss to show for it, as he fell 4-1 to the Angels in Anaheim. The right-hander permitted three runs -- two earned -- on eight hits and one walk while striking out five over six innings of work.

Chavez has allowed two earned runs in four of his last six starts. He owns a 3.04 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP through 13 starts (80 innings). He is expected to make his next start Sunday at home against the Yankees.

Big inning not enough to doom Jesse Chavez


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/4/2014) Athletics starter Jesse Chavez was not at the top of his game Wednesday, but the offense picked him up in a 7-4 win over the Yankees.

Chavez allowed four runs in six innings of work, though was better than that number might indicate. He was nearly flawless outside of a our-run third inning, during which he allowed a three-run home run to Jacoby Ellsbury, the last run he would allow.

Chavez ended up allowing his four runs on seven hits in six innings, while he walked two batters. He also struck out five on 107 pitches and earned the win, as the offense rallied to score seven runs from the fourth inning on.

Chavez ended a two-start losing streak, and is now 5-3 with a 3.04 ERA for the season. His next start is set for Monday against the Angels. 


Jesse Chavez stays sharp in losing effort


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2014) Athletics starter Jesse Chavez tossed a quality start in a losing effort on Thursday against the Tigers, dropping to 4-3 on the year.

Chavez allowed a run to score on a Miguel Cabrera ground out in the third and two more in the fifth, including a run-scoring double to Ian Kinsler. He pitched six innings and yielded three runs on eight hits, with two walks and three strikeouts. Of his 107 pitches, 70 were strikes in a 5-4 defeat.

Chavez dropped back-to-back decisions, allowing five earned runs in 11 1/3 innings over that span. He will look to get back on the win column Wednesday against the Yankees in New York. In six starts away from home, Chavez is 2-1 with a 2.48 ERA and a 41:7 K:BB ratio in 36 1/3 innings.

Jesse Chavez struggles in fifth to take loss


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2014) Athletics starter Jesse Chavez gave up two runs or less for the eighth time in 10 starts Saturday in Toronto, but that's about the only positive that came out of the game for him.

Chavez yielded those two earned runs, but also two unearned runs in lowering his record to 4-2. He walked one, struck out four and needed 95 pitches to get through 5 1/3 innings. He was fine for four innings, but gave up three runs in the fifth.

He will try to bounce back Thursday against the visiting Tigers.


Jesse Chavez wins despite allowing two homers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2014) Athletics starter Jesse Chavez yielded a pair of solo homers but little else in a 13-3 win over the Indians on Sunday. He allowed two earned runs on six hits over five innings, striking out six and walking three.

Now 4-1 with a 2.54 ERA, Chavez will face the Blue Jays on Saturday.


Jesse Chavez goes eight innings strong for win No. 3


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Over his last four starts covering 25 2/3 innings, Chavez (3-1) has allowed 10 earned runs. He is 2-1 over that span. He will make his next start Sunday at Cleveland. He is 1-0 with a 2.08 ERA in four starts away from home.

A's drop first Jesse Chavez start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2014) The Athletics dropped one of Jesse Chavez's starts for the first time all season Tuesday, in an 8-3 loss to the Mariners.

Chavez failed to finish the sixth inning for just the second time in seven starts, as was chased with two out in the sixth. He allowed four runs on seven hits in 5 2/3 innings of work, while striking out a season-low three batters and walking two, on 97 pitches.

Chavez dropped his first decision of the season, and is now 2-1 to go with his 2.47 ERA. He has 44 strikeouts in 43 2/3 innings of work heading into his next start, scheduled for Monday against the White Sox. 


Jesse Chavez stays hot with seven one-hit innings Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2014) Athletics pitcher Jesse Chavez continued his fantastic start to the season in Wednesday's win, giving up just one hit and one walk in seven scoreless innings as his team rolled over the Rangers, 12-1.

Chavez (2-0) surrendered a first-inning single with two outs before striking out the next batter. He then erased a fourth-inning walk with a groundball double play. That was all the Rangers could muster against the Oakland starter. Chavez owns a 1.89 ERA and 41:8 K:BB ratio in 38 innings over six starts. He'll square off with the Mariners Tuesday.


Jesse Chavez struggles in no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2014) Athletics starting pitcher Jesse Chavez saw his run of quality starts come to an end Friday, in a 12-5 win over the Astros.

Chavez entered the start having allowed just four earned runs in his first 26 innings of work, but the Astros got to him for as much in just five innings this time around. He was charged with five runs -- four earned -- on eight hits and a pair of walks over his five innings of work, while striking out five.

Despite the subpar performance, Chavez settled for a no-decision in the outing, as the A's offense came alive late. He is still just 1-0 through five starts, with a 2.32 ERA heading into his next outing, Wednesday at Texas. 


Jesse Chavez delivers another stellar outing


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2014) Athletics pitcher Jesse Chavez continued his strong start to the season with another dominant outing on Sunday, earning his first win of the season in his team's 4-1 victory over the Astros. The right-hander permitted one run on four hits and three walks while striking out six over six innings of work.

Chavez has allowed just one earned run in each of his first four starts. He owns a 1.38 ERA, a 0.92 WHIP with 28:5 K:BB ratio over 26 innings pitched. He will start again against the Astros, this time in Houston on Friday.

What's different for Jesse Chavez?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/15/2014) The way he's pitching would have you believe Jesse Chavez is a highly rated up-and-comer just scratching the surface of his potential. But he's actually a 30-year-old journeyman who has failed to capitalize on repeated opportunities at the big-league level.

Only when Al Melchior observed on a recent edition of Fantasy Baseball Today that Chavez has significantly altered his arsenal from earlier in his career did I open myself to the possibility of him becoming something more.

That was before Chavez's latest start, a nine-strikeout effort against Angels Monday night. Back-to-back starts with nine strikeouts and no walks is notable for any pitcher, regardless of age or track record. The cutter he worked to develop last year seems to have made a difference.

Chavez is still far from a sure thing, but since we really don't know where his new arsenal will take him, this hot start is a wave worth riding. As one who benefited from Esteban Loaiza's newfound cutter in 2003, I'd be a fool to ignore it.


Jesse Chavez strikes out nine in no-decision Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2014) Athletics pitcher Jesse Chavez didn't factor into the decision Monday after giving up two runs (one earned) on four hits in seven innings while striking out nine in his team's 3-2 win over the Angels.

Chavez pitched very well in the no-decision, throwing 77 of his 100 pitches for strikes. He was on the hook for the loss despite his strong effort before John Jaso hit a two-run home run in the ninth inning to erase a 2-1 deficit.

Chavez has done excellent in his first three starts, posting a 1.35 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 22:2 K:BB ratio in 20 innings. He's still looking for his first win, and he'll try and secure it Sunday at home against the Astros.


Hard-luck Jesse Chavez hurls gem for Athletics


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2014) Athletics right-hander Jesse Chavez became the latest victim Wednesday of the inability of closer Jim Johnson to close.

Chavez pitched his second fine game, yielding just one run on six hits in seven innings with no walks and nine strikeouts. But Johnson blew a three-run lead in the ninth and forced his team to win it in extra innings. Chavez has given up just two earned runs in 13 innings this season with 13 strikeouts. He will try again for his first win Monday against the Angels.
