Chavez unavailable due to sore back this weekend


Following this afternoon’s game, Joe Girardi said that Eric Chavez was unavailable all weekend due to a sore back. He is expected to return to the lineup tomorrow, however. Chavez played four straight games earlier this week and that’s probably as far as the Yankees can push him these days. As long as he’s good to go tomorrow, no big deal.

    Neat, I was right in the gamethread. This explains why Ichiro was called on instead.

    Chavez mentioned before the series that he needs the rest

    At least Rangers straters will go righty, lefty, righty, lefty so hopefully he can play a game and then rest. 7 straight righties from Seattle and Detroit contributed.

    Joe will just have to play McGeehee and Nix against certain righties to avoid overplaying Chavez.
