JESSE CHAVEZ RUMORS & GOSSIP

A's Chavez trying hard to eliminate fatigue factor in 2015

Jesse Chavez was a big part of the Oakland Athletics' pitching staff in 2014, though he tired down the stretch. That's a big reason why Chavez's eight-inning, 116-pitch outing on Wednesday against the Los Angeles Dodgers was such a big development for him.  In August of 2014, Chavez wore down.

Rolling out the early-season MLB ‘jump to conclusions’ mat

Yes, it’s early. We’re just into the second week of the 2015 MLB season, and most teams have 155 games left to play. But after five months without meaningful baseball, it’s easy to react to what we’ve seen early on and form early impressions based on that. It takes a bit of time to reacquaint ourselves with baseball’s long marathon.

Oakland A’s early fan favorites- did yours make it?

As a loyal Oakland A’s fan who has paid excessive attention to spring training (regardless that the preseason play is not an effective predictor) there have been a few select players that have caught my eye.

Jesse Chavez flashes quick reflexes on comebacker

If Jesse Chavez was a split second slower or Michael Saunders’ line drive was hit a hair differently, this could have been a scary moment. Instead, it’s an incredible defensive play. In the 4th inning of Monday night’s game in Oakland, Saunders hit a screamer right at Chavez on the mound. Luckily, Chavez was able to get his glove up in time — not only was he able to save...
