Eric Chavez suffers (another) setback


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.

  2. Xstar7 says:

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

  3. Nuke Ladoosh says:

    I blame Obamacare.

  4. CMP says:

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

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

  7. O.G. Mike says:

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

  8. Bob Michaels says:

    Yes, Nick Johnson redux, Sign Juan Rivera.

  9. Nice says:

    Can Dickerson be the LHB?

  10. Multiple Personalities says:

    Call up Montero and ask him to hit left handed

  11. Dino Velvet says:

    Chavez = peanut brittle

  12. Gerald says:

    “they called me…. Mr. Glass”

  13. Rainbow Connection says:

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

  14. Slugger27 says:

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

  16. SANTIAGO says:

    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.

  17. Jim says:

    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
