Via Chad Jennings, Eric Chavez has resumed baseball activities after suffering some setbacks in his rehab from a foot injury. “He’s taking ground balls, and he’s taking BP, so he’s done okay,” said Joe Girardi prior to this afternoon’s game. “Hopefully we can get him in a game pretty soon too. I can’t tell you when, but it would be nice to get him in a game soon.” I’m not going to hold my breath, but it would be really, really awesome to have Chavez back while Alex Rodriguez on the shelf.
Update (2:39pm): Via Marc Carig, Chavez is slated to DH in a minor league game as soon as Tuesday. Wow, that’s unexpectedly awesome.
