Blue Jays | Drew Hutchison favorite for rotation spot

Tue, 26 Jan 2016 13:58:13 -0800

Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison will likely receive the first crack at the final starting rotation spot as he competes with SPs Jesse Chavez and Aaron Sanchez for the spot.

Fantasy Tip: Hutchison went 13-5 but also had a 5.57 ERA in 2015 and struck out fewer hitters per nine innings than in his rookie season. That'll keep him from going until the later rounds in most fantasy drafts, but scooping him up then is surely worthwhile. He has the skills to be useful in most formats if you pick your spots wisely.

Blue Jays | Toronto lands Jesse Chavez

Fri, 20 Nov 2015 16:07:10 -0800

The Toronto Blue Jays acquired SP Jesse Chavez from the Oakland Athletics Friday, Nov. 20, in exchange for SP Liam Hendriks, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Chavez had an up-and-down season before being shelved with a rib injury in September. He went 7-15 with a 4.18 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in 26 starts for the A's. He could be used as a swing man for the Blue Jays, and this trade hurts his fantasy value moving to one of the more hitter-friendly environments. He's a late-round flier in AL-only leagues if he wins a rotation spot.

Athletics | Jesse Chavez's season over

Tue, 15 Sep 2015 15:21:18 -0700

Updating a previous report, Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez (rib) is dealing with a non-displaced rib fracture, and manager Bob Melvin said Chavez won't pitch again this season. SP Cody Martin is set to start Wednesday, Sept. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Go ahead and drop Chavez anywhere that he was still owned. Martin has a 15.00 ERA in one start over three innings for the A's this year. That should be enough to warn you not to run with him in your daily lineups tomorrow.

Athletics | Jesse Chavez scratched

Tue, 15 Sep 2015 14:45:24 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez (rib) will be scratched from his start Wednesday, Sept. 16, as he's dealing with rib soreness. Chavez is having trouble breathing and could miss the rest of the year. However, X-rays were negative and he could go for an MRI exam Wednesday. SP Cody Martin could replace Chavez in the rotation.

Fantasy Tip: While it's possible Chavez ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) could return to make another start this year, it's unlikely at this juncture. Dump him in any league that you still own him and don't plan on using him on FantasyScore.

Mariners | Franklin Gutierrez not starting

Sat, 05 Sep 2015 17:17:19 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Franklin Gutierrez is not in the lineup Saturday, Sept. 5. OF Shawn O'Malley will bat ninth against Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez.

Fantasy Tip: Batting at the bottom of the order in just his second game of the year, O'Malley can be ignored for fantasy purposes.

Mariners | Nelson Cruz remains out

Sat, 05 Sep 2015 17:13:30 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Nelson Cruz (quadriceps) is not in the lineup Saturday, Sept. 5. OF Seth Smith will bat fourth against Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) doesn't have a ton of upside, but nine of his 10 homers have come against right-handed pitchers this year. He could be worth taking a chance on at FantasyScore hitting out of the cleanup spot.

Athletics | Jesse Chavez earns win Wednesday

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 18:38:17 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez (7-12) allowed two runs on two hits over eight innings in a victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers Wednesday, Aug. 19, with two walks and six strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Although Chavez ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has been the victim of poor run support for most of the season, this was only his second quality start in his last six outings. He will make his next start against the Seattle Mariners Tuesday, Aug. 25.

Athletics | Sonny Gray scratched Thursday

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 06:49:31 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray (back) was scratched from his start Thursday, Aug. 13, and SP Jesse Chavez will take on the Toronto Blue Jays in his place. Gray is dealing with back spasms.

Fantasy Tip: Chavez ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) faces a robust offense and isn't worth starting on FantasyScore today.

Athletics | Jesse Chavez staying in rotation

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 12:07:39 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez will make his next start in the rotation, according to manager Bob Melvin. Chavez has a 5.68 ERA and opponents are hitting .311 off him in his last 11 starts. Chavez feels like he's getting more side-to-side movement on his pitches instead of downward action, and a slight mechanical tweak could be the fix.

Fantasy Tip: Chavez ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) has faded quickly and could be one more bad outing from being bumped from the rotation. He's not worth owning in mixed leauges right now and should be avoided at all costs on FantasyScore.

Athletics | Time to fade Jesse Chavez

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 22:19:50 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez was pounded for six runs in just 3 2/3 innings Monday, Aug. 3, against the Baltimore Orioles. He has posted a 5.68 ERA over his past 11 games while opponents are hitting .311 against him during the span.

Fantasy Tip: Chavez ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) has been terrible lately, so FantasyScore players should avoid him like the plague. Early in the year he wasn't getting wins because the run support just wasn't there. Lately, he isn't getting run support, and he surely isn't helping himself with uneven performances.
