Eric Chavez... shoulder problem!?!?

Postby bunter » Tue Jun 14, 2005 11:49 pm

Read this on Rotoworld:


Eric Chavez - 3B - Athletics

Eric Chavez is DHing tonight because his right shoulder is becoming more of a problem than usual.
Chavez, who has had dealt with some soreness for years, had an MRI exam Monday that revealed significant wear and tear. He should be able to make it through the season OK, but he might need surgery in October. The plan is for him to DH until Friday and then probably return to third base. Keith Ginter is filling in for him tonight. With Chavez DHing, Scott Hatteberg and Dan Johnson will have to continue to split time at first base. Neither is in the lineup tonight against a lefty.

It will if he hits .275 instead of .300 and all the OPS related stat following suit. :-t I like to trade for him every year when he's cold pre AS and get an awesome player Post AS.

He has had this shoulder problem for most of his career. It is just sore. I haven't read anything about him needing surgery. I know it effects his throws and not his swing. I don't think this is anything to worry about yet.
