Eric Chavez has resumed baseball activities and is waiting for concussion test results before being cleared to return to the team. He initially took a test on Wednesday before taking another one on Thursday and they are waiting for results on the second test.
“We’re just waiting for him to be cleared by Major League Baseball,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi told Bryan Hoch and Joey Nowak of MLB.com. “He has not been cleared yet; I don’t know how long it takes. As soon as he’s cleared, we’ll probably put him in there.”
The man of glass suffered a concussion on May 2 while making a diving play at third in which he didn’t even appear to hit his head. Since he’s been out the Yankees have been using Jayson Nix, who has done a fine job defensively but hasn’t contributed much with his bat. The only real reason to get Chavez back is so Eduardo Nunez doesn’t have to play third base.
