Eric Chavez suffers (another) setback

Game 84: Big Stoppa
Trenton drops both ends of a doubleheader

Via Bryan Hoch, Eric Chavez suffered his second setback in as many weeks, this time involving his abdomen. He’s on his way to New York to get checked out. Last week’s setback involved his back. The original injury involved his foot, remember. Chavez is sure doing a fine job of filling Nick Johnson‘s shoes, and I have to figure the Yankees will be on the lookout for a left-handed bat for the bench at the deadline.

    Well this is interesting because LoHud reported that the back setback wasn’t a setback at all.

    • Mike Axisa

      Cashman called it a setback, that’s all that matters. He said he wouldn’t be back when originally expected.

  • Xstar7

    Lol. This guy just can’t catch a break.

  • Nuke Ladoosh

    I blame Obamacare.

    • Pat D

      Grumble, grumble, grumble.

    If you combined all the working body parts from Chavez and Nick Johnson, you still couldn’t create one fully healthy major league player.

    Welcome to Mike Axisa’s River Ave Blues

    • Slugger27

      i dont get it

  • Jorge

    Gender-inappropriate joke as to what body part he’ll hurt next my wife would not approve of.

  • O.G. Mike

    Don’t forget Soripavano. He’s just as worthless.

    • Slugger27


      that may be worse than one commenter calling him “sorryassano” a few weeks ago

      • Craig

        That was me lol nice memory

  • Bob Michaels

    Yes, Nick Johnson redux, Sign Juan Rivera.

  • Nice

    Can Dickerson be the LHB?

    • Monteroisdinero

      no-not good enough.

      • MannyGeee

        he’s no Golson

  • Multiple Personalities

    Call up Montero and ask him to hit left handed

  • Dino Velvet

    Chavez = peanut brittle

  • Gerald

    “they called me…. Mr. Glass”

  • Rainbow Connection

    I bet his heart is broken over the Casey Anthony thing, too. Just add it to the list of injuries.

  • Slugger27

    i completely forgot he was on the 40man to be honest

  • dc1874

    and now batting 7th..Matsui….

    • Evan3457

      …and his .219 BAVG and .635 OPS. On the bright side, his OPS+ is up to 76.


    Wow,this is crazy. Hope our guys stay healthy. I guess its time 4 da prospects 2 step up 2 da plate. Its their big break.

  • Jim

    Hey look at the bright side. At least he’s not costing as much as any of the forementioned DL lineup. PS: Wasn’t Dickerson our only .300 hitter? I like the Mr Glass, Gerald
