Chavez strains back during rehab


Eric Chavez strained his back rehabbing from his foot injury, a setback that will keep him on the shelf even longer than expected. It’s unclear when he’ll be able to come back now, it depends on the severity of the strain of course. Might be time for the Yankees to look for a left-handed hitter off the bench, no?

    Okay he hasn’t been great this year but you try hitting in that park,Get Matsui here and he’ll be a good left handed hitter in Yankees Stadium.
