Eric Chavez leaves game with a sore ankle

It seems like the injuries never end in the Bronx this year, but when it comes to Eric Chavez we shouldn't be surprised. In a 7th inning at bat last night, Chavez took a swing and winced in extreme pain apparently coming from his ankle. He finished the at bat, but was replaced by Jayson Nix ...

Yankees don’t consider Nunez as an A-Rod replacement

When it became obvious that Alex Rodriguez would be headed to the DL for up to two months with a broken hand it seemed like Eduardo Nunez would be back in the Bronx shortly. After all,  Nunez would be the perfect platoon compliment for Eric Chavez at third base. While Chavez has had a good year overall, ...

Yankees need Eric Chavez to stay healthy

Felix Hernandez was “effectively wild” on Tuesday night. If he didn’t throw a pitch that didn’t hit or come near a batter, I didn’t see it. The term effectively wild is a good one because he still threw 7.1 innings and gave up two runs. He struck out four and got the win on a ...

Chavez says everyday a huge hurdle to climb physically

This is not exactly something you want to hear from one of your players just as a pennant race is really starting to get heated up, but Eric Chavez admitted to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports that playing, even at the age of 34, is “a huge hurdle to climb physically,” because of past injuries. “Once I ...

Yankees struggles continue with RISP

I don’t know about you, but it’s very hard to watch the Yankees right now. In April, I didn’t get too frustrated because, well, it’s April.  But now, we’re a fifth of the way through the season.  We shouldn’t still be waiting for this team to climb out of the offensive funk they started the season ...

Yankees send Nunez to minors, activate Chavez from DL

This morning I wrote that the Yankees needed to do something with infielder Eduardo Nunez, who has been experiencing big problems defensively, but I didn't think it would happen this quickly. The Yankees have demoted Nunez to Triple-A Friday afternoon and activated Eric Chavez, who was on the 7-day DL with a concussion, in his place, ...
