wow I couldn't believe that split until I looked it up to check. Eric Chavez's problem throughout his young career has been that he has always completely destroyed Right handed pitching. I believe well over 300 in his career, however when it comes to hitting left handed pitching well to steal a quote from MLB.com "Chances are if your grandma can throw left handed she can probably strike out Chavez". Chavy has never been able to figure out left handed pitching................until now?
The fact that he is hitting below 220 against RHP is a COMPLETE fluke and by the end of the season he will be hitting WELL over 300 vs them. If his current 288 against lefties stays then Chavez is WITH OUT A DOUBT going to take that next step. If he has finnaly learned LHP. then this kid is now a LEGIT monster.
Trust me, the low RHP avg is a total fluke.
