Chavis went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 6-5 extra-innings win over the Blue Jays. The rookie's 10th homer of the season was a big one, as he tattooed a Jimmy Cordero cutter 424 feet to straightaway center field in the top of the 13th inning to finally put away a Toronto squad that had come back to tied the score in the ninth and 12th. Chavis is slashing .283/.382/.585 through his first 28 big-league games.
Chavis went 2-for-4 with a solo home run Sunday against the Astros. Chavis took Wade Miley deep in the fifth inning to record his eighth homer of the season. After a slow five-game stretch early in May, Chavis has turned it on again of late, recording a hit in five of his last six starts -- including four multi-hit efforts. The 23-year-old is now hitting .290/.389/.570 across 108 plate appearances for the season.
Chavis will lead off and start at second base Sunday against the Astros, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports. Chavis has typically slotted in anywhere between the fifth and seventh spots in the order, but he'll get his first turn in the leadoff spot with normal table setter Andrew Benintendi sitting out. The rise up the lineup may give Chavis' stock a boost in DFS contests, but he'll likely drop back down in the order once Benintendi returns to action Monday in Toronto.
Chavis went 2-for-5 with a walkoff single in Wednesday's 6-5, extra-inning win over the Rockies. Chavis came to bat in the 10th inning and promptly singled in Xander Bogaerts to secure the win for the Red Sox. The rookie infielder has responded to a five-game hitless run with three straight multi-hit efforts, going 7-for-15 with seven RBI in his recent hot stretch. The 23-year-old will likely run streaky at times, but he's hitting .296 with 21 RBI and 15 runs scored through 22 games this season.
Chavis went 2-for-5 with a home run and two runs scored Tuesday against the Rockies. Chavis took Kyle Freeland deep in the second inning for a solo shot, his seventh homer of the season. He's maintained the hot start to his major-league career, racking up four home runs while driving in 11 and scoring six runs in his past nine games. While he's struck out at a 26.4 percent clip, he's offset that with a walk rate of 16.4 percent. Overall, he's hitting .289/.407/.592 across 91 plate appearances.
