Dodgers | Jesse Chavez of interest to the Dodgers

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 15:49:10 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez is of trade interest to the Los Angeles Dodgers, as general manager Farhan Zaidi has always been interested in acquiring the Oakland righty, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Interestingly, Chavez ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) is starting against the Dodgers Wednesday, so Los Angeles will receive a first-hand look at the hurler. Chavez owns a crafty arm, but he is more of a matchup play than go-to starter, especially at FantasyScore. He would gain significant value starting for the Dodgers, though.

Athletics | Jesse Chavez in a rut

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 10:07:25 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez has a 5.04 ERA in his last nine starts after posting an ERA of 2.38 in his first eight starts. He is 0-1 with a 2.16 ERA in eight career outings (all in relief) against the Los Angeles Dodgers, who he faces Wednesday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: Chavez ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) is a dangerous FantasyScore option today, as the Dodgers rank fifth in baseball with a .752 OPS against right-handed pitchers this season.

Athletics | Jesse Chavez averse to sunshine?

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 18:06:49 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez will start Thursday, July 9, against the New York Yankees in the afternoon road series finale. He is 1-5 with a 3.89 ERA in seven day game appearances (six starts) this season.

Fantasy Tip: Chavez ($5,500; or 11.0% of cap) is a neutral play in FantasyScore, as his ERA is actually not that bad, he just gets poor run support. And, he will be opposed by Masahiro Tanaka, who has been rather uneven lately.

Athletics | Jesse Chavez effective with short rest

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 04:44:07 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez is 4-7 this season, but he has a 1.98 ERA in games where he has pitched on four days' rest. Chavez pitches Friday, July 3, against the Seattle Mariners.

Fantasy Tip: Chavez ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) may be an effective choice for this game in FantasyScore contests. He is up against Mariners starter J.A. Happ, who is winless in his past four appearances.

Athletics | No support for Jesse Chavez

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 20:19:00 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez is set to start Wednesday, June 17, against the San Diego Padres. He has the lowest run support (1.76) in the majors.

Fantasy Tip: It has been downright unfair for Chavez ($5,800; or 11.6% of cap), who has a sparkling 2.64 ERA and a 2-6 win-loss record. He has lasted six or more innings in seven of his past eight starts, allowing three or fewer runs in five of his past six. He is a solid FantasyScore option despite his lack of run support.

Athletics | Jesse Chavez roughed up

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 17:28:57 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez required 95 pitches to get through the fifth inning Thursday, April 30, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Chavez surrendered seven hits, three walks and four earned runs, while managing five strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Chavez ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) entered the game with an ERA of just 0.71 through 12.2 innings pitched. Chavez's .161 BABIP coming in, took a hit, as did the rest of his numbers. FantasyScore owners should wait and see how Chavez responds in his next outing before reinvesting.

Fantasy Tip: Chavez ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) should be watched over his first couple of starts before you see whether or not to start him.

Athletics | Jesse Chavez continues to impress manager

Fri, 20 Feb 2015 12:48:55 -0800

Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez looks in mid-season form after throwing his first bullpen session of spring training Friday, Feb. 20, according to manager Bob Melvin. "He looks in mid-season form every time I ever see him,'' Melvin said, "whether he's throwing bullpen, or in a game early. Impressive. He's a very focused kid who comes here with the mindset he has something to prove. That's always what you like to see.''

Fantasy Tip: Chavez had a respectable 3.44 ERA and 8.5 K/9 through 21 starts for Oakland before he was relegated to the bullpen when the team brought in Jon Lester last season. While there are no guarantees he returns to the starting rotation, his success last season improves the chances, and the Athletics staff has a few injury concerns. At best, Chavez is a late-round flier in mixed leagues, but there is upside, if he lands in the rotation.

Athletics | Eric O'Flaherty, Jesse Chavez off roster

Tue, 30 Sep 2014 11:52:45 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Eric O'Flaherty is not on the team's Wild Card roster after he wasn't available for the final series of the season against the Texas Rangers. He's coming off Tommy John surgery, and it sounds as if his arm isn't feeling great. OF Billy Burns and SP Jason Hammel are on the roster, as well as SP Drew Pomeranz. SP Jesse Chavez isn't on the one-day roster, either.
