      Blue Jays' Jesse Chavez: Traded to Blue Jays

      Chavez was traded to the Blue Jays on Friday for Liam Hendriks, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports. The Jays have a hole in the rotation, with David Price likely heading elsewhere in free agency. Chavez has had a FIP under 4.00 in each of the last three seasons, and he pitched a career-high 157 innings in 2015 before being shut down after suffering a broken rib. It's a downgrade in ballpark for the veteran righty, but an indisputable upgrade in projected run support, so he could win double-digit games for the first time in his career.

      Report: A's SP Jesse Chavez done for season with fractured rib

      Athletics pitcher Jesse Chavez has a non-displaced rib fracture and his season is over,'s Jane Lee reports. The 32-year-old righty predictably regressed this season, posting a 4.18 ERA compared to a 3.45 ERA in 2014. That said, his 3.86 FIP was almost identical to his 3.89 FIP from last season, so that is probably a good gauge of his true talent. He should compete for a spot at the back of Oakland's rotation next spring. Cody Martin will make the start Wednesday against the White Sox and could stick in Oakland's rotation down the stretch.

      A's SP Jesse Chavez pitches well, but saddled with 15th loss Friday

      Athletics starter Jesse Chavez failed to pick up a win for the fourth straight outing, as he allowed three runs on six hits over six innings in a 4-0 loss to the Rangers on Friday. Chavez walked one and struck out six, but got no support from his offense as Colby Lewis was nearly perfect on the other side. All three runs against Chavez (7-15, 4.18 ERA) came in the very first inning. After that he was very sharp, retiring the final eight men he faced.

      Struggles persist for A's SP Jesse Chavez on Saturday

      Athletics starter Jesse Chavez continued his recent trend of poor outings, as he struggled again on Saturday against the Mariners. Chavez allowed five runs on six hits over two-plus innings. He walked five and struck out two, throwing just 24 of his 60 pitches for strikes. Chavez (7-14, 4.17 ERA) got off to a rocky start, as he allowed three runs in top of the first inning. He gave up a lead-off single in the third inning which was followed by a two-run home run by Logan Morrison. He walked the next batter, and that was all that manager Bob Melvin needed to see before making a switch. The right-hander is now 2-3 with a 5.25 ERA in his last six starts, and his season ERA is at the highest mark of the season.

      Athletics SP Jesse Chavez rebounds Sunday from poor effort

      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

      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.

      Athletics SP Jesse Chavez latest victim of rampaging Blue Jays

      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.
