Rangers' Jesse Chavez: Returns from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavez (toe) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Sunday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Chavez will take the roster spot of Joely Rodriguez (hamstring), who is done for the season. While Chavez was decent enough last year, he has struggled to an 8.74 ERA and 1.68 WHIP through 12 appearances this season, blowing three leads along the way. The 37-year-old is in the final year of his contract and this may be it for his major-league career.

Rangers' Jesse Chavez: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavez was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left big toe sprain, retroactive to Aug. 23.

Chavez has struggled during recent appearances and now carries an 8.74 ERA and 1.68 WHIP over 11.1 innings this season as he's blown three saves. It's unclear how the 37-year-old sustained his injury or whether he'll be able to return after spending the minimum amount of time on the injured list.

Rangers' Jesse Chavez: Blows save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavez allowed two runs in two-thirds of an inning and blew his third save of the season in Thursday's 8-7 loss to the Padres.

Chavez entered in the bottom of the eighth inning to preserve a 6-5 lead but yielded back-to-back home runs to Ty France and Austin Hedges. It was the sixth time in 11 outings the reliever has allowed runs, and Chavez has given up six long balls in just 10.2 innings. He was once considered an important bullpen piece, but an 8.71 ERA (10.23 FIP) and 5.2 HR/9 should put an end to those thoughts.

Rangers' Jesse Chavez: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavez (elbow) is expected to be ready for Opening Day, T.R. Sullivan of reports.

This is not exactly earth-shattering news -- after all, Chavez was projected for a mid-May return before the shutdown -- but it's nice to get confirmation that he has not experienced any setbacks in recent months. The veteran's overall numbers from last year are ugly, though he was pitching quite well with a 3.30 ERA and 1.20 WHIP in the first half before the elbow issue popped up. He will likely pitch exclusively in relief this season.

Rangers' Jesse Chavez: Mid-May return projected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavez (elbow) is starting a throwing program designed to have him pitching off a mound by mid-May, T.R. Sullivan of reports.

Chavez was headed for a stint on the injured list before spring training shut down. He made just one appearance during the Cactus League, as the elbow injury has lingered since the end of last season. The Rangers are using the delayed start to the season to get Chavez ready at a measured pace. He's been throwing out to 60 feet and is expected to be long-tossing by the end of April.

Rangers' Jesse Chavez: To open on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavez (elbow) will open the season on the injured list, T.R. Sullivan of reports.

Chavez underwent surgery to remove loose bodies from his elbow in September. While he was supposedly at full strength to start camp, he saw action in just one Cactus League game and evidently needs more time.

Rangers' Jesse Chavez: Ready to pitch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavez (elbow) is at full strength as the Rangers begin spring training, T.R. Sullivan of reports.

Chavez had his 2019 season cut short by an elbow impingement that eventually required surgery. It was an issue he dealt with, but he finally made the decision to go under the knife. With experience as both a starter and reliever, Chavez was moved into the rotation at one point during 2019, but he'll throw out of the bullpen in 2020.

Rangers' Jesse Chavez: Undergoes elbow surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavez underwent surgery to remove loose bodies from his right elbow Monday, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

Chavez finished the season with a 4.85 ERA in 78 innings. He'll be shut down for eight weeks but will then start a throwing program in time to be ready for the start of spring training.

Rangers' Jesse Chavez: Moves to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavez (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Monday.

Chavez has already been ruled out for the remainder of the season with an elbow injury; he'll be reexamined this week to determine if surgery is necessary to address the bone spur in his right elbow. In the first year of his two-year, $8 million contract with Texas, the veteran hurler posted a 4.85 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 72:22 K:BB across 78 innings. Yohander Mendez (elbow) was activated from the IL and optioned to the minors in a corresponding move.

Rangers' Jesse Chavez: Out for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavez (elbow) will not pitch again this season, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

The right-hander was placed on the injured list earlier this month, with the injury initially labeled a right elbow impingement. Further testing revealed a bone spur, and Chavez will be examined again next week to determine if surgery will be necessary. Chavez posted a 4.85 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 72:22 K:BB over 78 innings in the first year of a two-year, $8 million contract with Texas.

Rangers' Jesse Chavez: Heads to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavez was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a right elbow impingement, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

It's unclear as to when this injury cropped up, but Chavez has surrendered five runs over his last two outings, so it could explain his recent struggles. David Carpenter has been recalled from Triple-A Nashville in a corresponding move.

Rangers' Jesse Chavez: Picks up first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavez allowed one hit and struck out two through a scoreless ninth inning to record his first save in a 9-7 win over the Mariners on Wednesday.

Chavez allowed a single, but he otherwise made quick work of the Mariners to nail down his first save. The right-hander received the save opportunity after Jose Leclerc blew a save Sunday, but this appears to be a committee going forward. Chavez has a 4.42 ERA with a 8.5 K/9 and a 2.7 BB/9 through 43 appearances this season.

Rangers' Jesse Chavez: Heads back to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavez will pitch out of the bullpen moving forward, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Chavez didn't even make it out of the first inning during Wednesday's start, surrendering seven runs over just two-thirds of an inning before being removed. As a result, he'll move to a relief role. The right-hander owns a 4.72 ERA and 1.31 WHIP with a 62:20 K:BB over 68.2 innings this season (nine starts).

Rangers' Jesse Chavez: Hit hard in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavez (3-5) gave up seven runs on five hits and one walk while striking out none through two-thirds of an inning to take the loss against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

Chavez allowed seven baserunners and seven runs before being removed without making it through the first inning. The 35-year-old has a 4.72 ERA and an 8.1 K/9 with a 2.6 BB/9 through 39 appearances this season. Chavez will look to get back on track in his next start Monday against the Mariners at T-Mobile Park.

July 13, 2019 05:00 AM
Rangers' Jesse Chavez: Hit hard by Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavez didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 9-8 win over the Astros, surrendering seven runs (six earned) on seven hits -- including three home runs -- and two walks over 5.1 innings while striking out three.

It was a wild night at Globe Life Park, with the two teams combining for nine homers and Chavez only escaping his third straight loss thanks to a late Texas rally from an 8-4 deficit. The right-hander now has a 3.84 ERA and 62:19 K:BB through 68 innings, and with the Rangers getting two off days next week, Chavez should receive some extra rest before his next start.

Rangers' Jesse Chavez: Loses second straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavez (3-4) took the loss Saturday, allowing five runs (four earned) on five hits and two walks while striking out three over five innings against Minnesota.

The 35-year-old permitted three runs in the second inning and two more in the fourth as he could not get big outs with men on base. Chavez had done well in his previous three starts, throwing 17.1 innings and allowing just four earned runs with an 18:0 K:BB. He'll take a respectable 3.30 ERA and 1.29 WHIP into the All-Star Break along with a 59:17 K:BB for the season.

Rangers' Jesse Chavez: Strikes out eight in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavez (3-3) yielded four runs (three earned) on five hits across six innings Sunday, striking out eight and taking the loss against Tampa Bay.

Most of the damage against Chavez came in the fourth and fifth innings, when he allowed three runs, including a solo shot from Tommy Pham. His season ERA bumped to 2.97 in 57.2 innings. For now, it appears that Chavez should stick around the Rangers' rotation. He is scheduled to make his next start in Minnesota on Friday.

Rangers' Jesse Chavez: Impressive return to rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavez (3-2) picked up the win Tuesday, allowing one unearned run on five hits over 6.1 innings while striking out seven in a 5-3 victory over the Tigers.

It was the 35-year-old's longest outing in over two years, and while the quality of the opponent has to be taken into consideration, Chavez bought himself some job security in his new role as the Rangers' fifth starter. He'll carry a 2.79 ERA and 48:15 K:BB through 51.2 innings into his next outing Sunday in Tampa Bay.

Rangers' Jesse Chavez: Entering rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rangers confirmed Thursday that Chavez will enter the rotation as the club's new fifth starter, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

He'll fill the spot previously occupied by Drew Smyly and Joe Palumbo, who were both banished to the minors after ugly showings as a long reliever and starter, respectively, over the last two days. Chavez has made 74 career big-league starts, but he's been deployed as an opener for each of his four "starts" this season. As such, he could face a restricted pitch count in his first two turns through the rotation while he transitions from a bullpen role, though he did build up to a season-high five innings while working behind Palumbo in Wednesday's 10-4 loss. Chavez's first start will come Tuesday in Detroit, per Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Rangers' Jesse Chavez: Possible starter?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavez allowed one run on four hits while striking out three over five innings of relief in Wednesday's loss to the Indians.

Chavez was needed early and picked up the bullpen as rookie starter Joe Palumbo couldn't get out of the third inning. This was the second straight appearance in which Chavez threw multiple innings -- he tossed three scoreless frames as an opener last Friday. The Rangers bequeathed their fifth starter job to Palumbo prior to Wednesday's start, but they may be rethinking that decision. If they are, manager Chris Woodward may want to consider Chavez, who has made 70 career starts in the majors, not including his four appearances as an opener this season.
