Red Sox's Michael Chavis: Mashes grand slam
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavis went 1-for-3 with two walks and a grand slam in Monday's 10-8 win over the Blue Jays.

His first-inning blast got the offensive fireworks started on the night. Chavis is now slashing .259/.330/.465 with an impressive 16 homers and 52 RBI in his first 73 big-league games.

Red Sox's Michael Chavis: Sitting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavis is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Dodgers, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

Chavis sits after starting the last 24 games at first base. Christian Vazquez starts at the position Saturday for the first time in his big-league career.

Red Sox's Michael Chavis: Slugs 15th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavis went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Thursday's victory over the Blue Jays.

Chavis turned a 6-4 deficit into a one-run lead with one swing of the bat in the sixth inning, crushing a 391-foot homer to left field. Though his high strikeout numbers (94 in 257 at-bats) are cause for concern, Chavis has nonetheless enjoyed a strong start to his rookie season, slashing .265/.335/.479 with 15 home runs and 47 runs batted in.

Red Sox's Michael Chavis: Clubs two three-run homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavis went 2-for-4 with a pair of three-run home runs in Saturday's 17-13 loss to the Yankees in London.

Chavis capped off a six-run first inning with his 425-foot blast to tie the game 6-6 and went deep again in the seventh to give the Red Sox a fighting chance. The 23-year-old is slashing .267/.341/.475 with 14 homers over his first 62 major-league games.

Red Sox's Michael Chavis: Hits in 11th straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavis went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in Saturday's 8-7 loss to the Blue Jays.

Chavis has hit safely in 11 straight games, the longest active streak in the AL, going 16-for-50 (.320) during the run. Manager Alex Cora told Steve Hewitt of the Boston Herald that Chavis has stayed in the zone, refusing to chase pitches upstairs or down. "He's made some adjustments but I think it starts with that," Cora said. "Get ready early, see the ball, and not try to do too much. He will swing and miss. We know that. But I think he's been a lot better the last two weeks."

Red Sox's Michael Chavis: Quietly heating up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavis went 2-for-5 with two RBI in Wednesday's 9-4 win over the Twins.

Chavis has emerged from his first taste of adversity at the MLB level and has hit safely in nine straight games, going 13-for-41 (.317) with two home runs, six RBI and seven runs scored during that stretch. His streak has been timely as Boston's offense overall has improved while the team has won seven of its last eight games. After getting his MLB career off to a blazing start, the infielder was mired in a 20-game slump in which he batted just .181. He'll continue to get at-bats as the starting first baseman but could eventually slot in as the primary second baseman when Mitch Moreland (quadriceps) and Steve Pearce (back) return.

Red Sox's Michael Chavis: Slugs 12th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavis went 2-for-5 with a home run, three RBI, a walk and two runs scored Friday against the Orioles.

Chavis put together an impressive day at the dish, driving home a run in the fourth inning on a single to left center, and then launching a two-run homer in the fifth to extend Boston's lead to nine. The 23-year-old continues to have a solid rookie campaign, and he's now slashing .253/.341/.478 with 12 home runs and 34 RBI over 50 contests.

Red Sox's Michael Chavis: Bats ninth Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavis started at first base and batted ninth in Tuesday's 9-5 loss to the Rangers. He went 1-for-4 with a double and a run scored.

This was the first time Chavis started a game batting last in the order. He was the toast of Boston when he had a .981 OPS over his first 26 major-league games, but he's dropped off considerably since. In the following 21 games, Chavis has a .538 OPS with four extra-base hits in 76 at-bats. He'll continue to get playing time, considering Boston is thin at first base with both Mitch Moreland (quadriceps) and Steve Pearce (back) sidelined. However, for the time being, his fantasy allure has worn off.

Red Sox's Michael Chavis: On bench Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavis is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Rangers, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

Chavis has been the Red Sox's primary first baseman of late while Mitch Moreland (quadriceps) and Steve Pearce (back) are both on the injured list. He'll get a rest Monday, with Sam Travis taking over at the position.

Red Sox's Michael Chavis: Starts both ends of doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavis served as the first baseman for both games of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rays. He went 2-for-4 in the opener then 1-for-3 with two RBI in the nightcap.

The struggling Chavis started both games after Boston placed Mitch Moreland (quadriceps) on the injured list Saturday. He entered the day hitting .100 (3-for-30) over the past eight games. Sam Travis is also around to play first base until Moreland and/or Steve Pearce (back) return.

Red Sox's Michael Chavis: Enters game for Moreland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavis entered Friday's game after first baseman Mitch Moreland was removed due to a quadriceps strain. He went 0-for-2 in a 5-1 loss to the Rays.

Moreland, who returned from a back injury Friday, was expected to provide a break for the slumping Chavis, who is 10-for-61 (.164) over the last 16 games. Moreland landed back on the injured list, so Chavis may not get that timely rest, although the Red Sox still have Sam Travis on the roster.

Red Sox's Michael Chavis: Day off Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavis is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Rays.

Chavis has fallen off after an excellent start to his rookie season, hitting .169 with a 41.5 percent strikeout rate over his last 15 games. Mitch Moreland returns from his back injury to start at first base, with Brock Holt starting at second.

Red Sox's Michael Chavis: Earns rookie honors for May
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavis was named the AL Rookie of the Month for May, Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reports.

Chavis posted a slash line of .248/.331/.457 during the month with seven home runs, 19 RBI, 11 walks and 14 runs. More accurately, Chavis was the best rookie of the first three weeks of May, as he cooled off dramatically over the final eight games while hitting just .194 with no extra-base hits. Manager Alex Cora said opposing pitchers are attacking Chavis up in the zone. "There are certain teams that have special fastballs and we faced the last three weekends two of those teams, and you can see where they're going," Cora said of the Yankees and Astros. "Not everybody throws 97 with hop so it's just one of those that they're going to a spot and sometimes you want to get on top of that pitch and you don't. Sometimes it's better off just being disciplined up in the zone and right now he's not." Chavis will get the opportunity to break out of his slump and work on laying off pitches up in the zone, considering he'll continue to serve as the primary first baseman with Mitch Moreland (back) and Steve Pearce (back) sidelined.

Red Sox's Michael Chavis: Delivers two hits in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavis went 2-for-4 with a triple, RBI and a run Sunday in the Red Sox's 8-5 win over the Yankees.

Chavis' second-inning single ended a three-game hitless streak, which qualifies as a slump for the rookie in what has been an otherwise impressive debut campaign. The 24-year-old has been seeing more action at first base of late with Mitch Moreland (back) and Steve Pearce (back) on the injured list, but he'll still have an everyday role waiting for him at the keystone once those two injured players return to full health.

Red Sox's Michael Chavis: Will be primary first baseman
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavis will be the primary starter at first base while Mitch Moreland (back) and Steve Pearce (back) are on the injured list, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.

Chavis made his eighth start at first base Saturday, going 0-for-3 with a walk in a loss to the Yankees. After a hot start to his big-league career, Chavis is batting just .207 with a .628 OPS over his last 23 games.

Red Sox's Michael Chavis: Enters for injured Pearce
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavis entered Friday's game in the second inning after Steve Pearce was removed due to back spasms. He went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts in a 4-1 loss to the Yankees.

Chavis was not in the starting lineup despite the Yankees throwing left-hander J.A. Happ. He had been serving as Boston's leadoff hitter against left-handers recently. When asked why Chavis was not in the lineup, manager Alex Cora told Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald, "I don't want to tell (Yankees manager Aaron Boone) why he didn't play. Sorry, my bad. Just being honest." With both Pearce and Mitch Moreland dealing with back injuries, expect Chavis to be a regular at first base.

Red Sox's Michael Chavis: Remains out of Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavis is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Yankees, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.

The Red Sox will keep the same lineup they posted for Thursday's postponed contest versus the Yankees, leaving Chavis on the bench. The 23-year-old is slashing .269/.364/.507 with 10 homers through his first 35 major-league games.

Red Sox's Michael Chavis: Gets breather
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavis is not in the lineup Thursday against the Yankees, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.

Chavis will retreat to the bench for what appears to be a routine day off following a string of 18 straight starts; the youngster hit .250/.313/.408 with four homers and 14 RBI during that stretch. In his place, Steve Pearce is starting at first base while Eduardo Nunez occupies the keystone.

Red Sox's Michael Chavis: Will remain in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavis started at first base for a second straight game Wednesday and will remain a regular in the lineup, Steve Hewitt of the Boston Herald reports. "We'll find at-bats for (Chavis), somehow, somewhere," manager Alex Cora said.

Chavis, who had been the regular second baseman for the last month, moved to first base the last two games with Mitch Moreland (back) unavailable and landing on the injured list Wednesday. The recently activated Brock Holt started at second base for the second straight contest. While Cora finds opportunities for both Holt and Eduardo Nunez, Chavis should be a fixture in the everyday lineup. He'll receive the bulk of at-bats at first base over Steve Pearce and can move back to second when Pearce is in the lineup.

Red Sox's Michael Chavis: Starts at first base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chavis started at first base Monday with Mitch Moreland (knee) unavailable. He went 2-for-3 with a walk and was hit by a pitch in a 12-5 win over the Indians.

Chavis has been the regular second baseman while Dustin Pedroia (knee), Brock Holt (shoulder) and Eduardo Nunez (back) all served time on the injured list. Both Holt and Nunez are back, but Chavis has done enough that manager Alex Cora wants to keep his bat in the lineup. He's played first base and third base in the minors, but may end up being the primary second baseman.
