Athletics SP Jesse Chavez rebounds Sunday from poor effort


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/30/2015) The Jekyll-Hyde run of Athletics starter Jesse Chavez continued Sunday when he followed a terrible performance with a strong one in a no-decision against host Arizona.

Chavez yielded just one earned run on eight hits in five innings with one walk and six strikeouts.

One problem is that it took him 95 pitches to get through five. Another is that he couldn't recover from a two-out error in the second, giving up singles to Ender Inciarte and Chris Owings that resulted in two unearned runs.

Chavez has just three quality starts in his last eight outings.


A's SP Jesse Chavez coughs up five-run lead, takes loss Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/26/2015) Athletics starter Jesse Chavez did not fare well in his outing against the Mariners on Tuesday. After his team gave him a 5-0 lead, Chavez allowed six runs on eight hits over 4 2/3 innings. 

The A's scored five runs over the first two innings, and looked to be heading towards victory. But things started to fall apart for Chavez when he allowed a solo home run to Nelson Cruz and a two-run shot to Logan Morrison in the fourth inning.

Chavez (7-13, 4.00 ERA) then allowed three more runs to score in the fifth, and the Mariners would not relinquish that lead. 

Chavez has now given up at least four runs in six of his last 10 starts, and he owns a 5.60 ERA over that stretch.

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Athletics SP Jesse Chavez latest victim of rampaging Blue Jays


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2015) Athletics right-hander Jesse Chavez performed quite well Thursday considering only an injury to Sonny Gray had him on the mound and that he was facing a sizzling offensive juggernaut in the Blue Jays on their home field.

It wasn't good enough, however. Chavez was merely added to the list of recent Toronto victims. He surrendered four runs on six hits, but did walk none and strike out nine.

He blanked the Blue Jays in every inning aside from the second, but that frame was a disaster. He let the bottom of the lineup do the damage as Kevin Pillar hit an RBI single and Ryan Goins followed with a three-run homer. Chavez retired 14 of the next 15 batters, including seven by strikeout.

Chavez has managed just two quality starts in his last 10 outings, but his ERA remains a decent 3.84.


A's Gray scratched due to back spasms; Chavez starts Thursday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2015) Athletics starting pitcher Sonny Gray was scratched from Thursday's start against the Blue Jays due to back spasms. Jesse Chavez stepped in to start in Gray's absence.

The All-Star Gray is 2-0 with a 1.13 ERA in his last four starts. He also has a .193 opponents' batting average in that span.

Chavez has not had a strong start to the second half. He is 2-2 with a 5.11 ERA through five starts after the All-Star break. Although, he did allowed one run in seven innings in a win in his last start against the Astros.

A's SP Jesse Chavez gets blasted by Orioles on Monday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/4/2015) Athletics starter Jesse Chavez was hit early and often in his outing against the Orioles on Monday. The right-hander allowed six runs on nine hits over just 3 2/3 innings. He threw 46 of 77 pitches for strikes, as the A's lost 9-2 on Monday.

Chavez (5-11) got off to a rocky start in this one, as he was down 3-0 before getting a chance to settle in. He gave up a three-run home run to Chris Davis in the very first inning. Caleb Joseph also touched up Chavez for a two-run blast in the fourth inning, as Chavez suffered his worst start of the season.

With the poor outing, Chavez's ERA rose to 3.88. He has now given up four or more runs in four of his past six starts, posting a 6.52 ERA over that stretch.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

"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."

Chavez is now winless in his last three starts. He has not earned a quality start in his last four starts during his personal three-game losing streak.

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."

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."
