Eric Chavez

  1. Eric Chavez leaves game with apparent injury

    May 30, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    Eric Chavez

    Bad news for the snakes: third baseman Eric Chavez left today’s game with an injury: Well this isn’t good. Eric Chavez just took a swing and walked back to the dugout in pain. Cliff Pennington in the game to replace him. — Nick Piecoro (@nickpiecoro) May 30, 2013   Chavez has been fantastic this year,…

  2. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    May 16, 2013, 6:31 AM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v New York Yankees

    Mariners 12, Yankees 2: This one was over almost before it started, with Phil Hughes getting knocked around for seven runs in the first inning, which he did not escape. Raul Ibanez hit two homers and drove in six off his old team. Which, I imagine, will cause some columnist who has been lauding Brian…

  3. Yankees School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

    Every now and again — well, let’s face it, pretty much every day now — I get another email telling me that Vernon Wells — Vernon Bleepin’ Wells — just got another two hits with another homer with another three RBIs and so on. The emails are from Michael Schur, Parks and Recreation executive producer,…

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2013 season.

  5. Cardinals’ lack of action could be their undoing

    Feb 21, 2013, 11:59 PM EDT

    Mike Matheny, Chris Carpenter

    It’s hard to blame the Cardinals for staying the course. Even with free agents Kyle Lohse and Lance Berkman set to depart, St. Louis ended 2012 with a roster that already looked like a winner entering 2013: Rotation: Adam Wainwright, Chris Carpenter, Jaime Garcia, Lance Lynn, Jake Westbrook, Shelby Miller, Joe Kelly, Trevor Rosenthal Bullpen:…

  6. Twenty teams have called about Freddy Sanchez? OK.

    Jan 8, 2013, 11:03 AM EDT

    freddy sanchez batting getty

    Freddy Sanchez hasn’t played a game in the majors since June 10, 2011. The reason: shoulder and back surgeries, each of which can, independently, drain a big leaguer of any value he once had. But teams are willing, apparently, to at least give him a chance: Interest in free-agent second baseman Freddy Sanchez has picked up since the…

  7. 2013 Free Agency Tracker

    Dec 23, 2012, 9:36 PM EDT

    Zack Greinke, Ned Colletti, Magic Johnson

    We’ll be updating this one throughout the offseason. Players are listed based on their ranking in the Top 111 Free Agents. At the bottom is a listing of free agents who signed before the ranking came out, and we’ll be adding signings of players who didn’t make the top 111 as they come in. (Update:…

  8. How the Diamondbacks went from Trevor Bauer to Didi Gregorius

    Dec 11, 2012, 10:06 PM EDT

    Trevor Bauer

    The Diamondbacks and GM Kevin Towers knew all about Trevor Bauer‘s odd delivery and unusual throwing program when they made him the third overall pick in the 2011 draft. If they had questions about him then, they overlooked them in order to get one of the top talents on the board. Now, a year and…

  9. Mariners, Phillies weigh Raul Ibanez return

    Dec 5, 2012, 4:40 PM EDT

    Raul Ibanez

    Having already seen Russell Martin and Eric Chavez sign elsewhere, the Yankees could next lose Raul Ibanez to a more interested suitor. FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal reports that the Mariners, Phillies and Rangers are interested in the 40-year-old. According to the New York Post’s Joel Sherman, Ibanez would prefer to remain with the Yankees, but he’s…

  10. The Diamondbacks sign Eric Chavez for one year, $3 million

    Dec 5, 2012, 2:32 PM EDT

    Toronto Blue Jays v New York Yankees

    Not everything is about the Yankees, but a lot of signings are going to cause more of a reaction among Yankees fans than they will with the team which actually makes the signing. Like this one: Jon Heyman reports that the Diamondbacks have signed Eric Chavez. The deal is one year, $3 million, which seems…

  11. Yankees interested in free agent infielder Jeff Keppinger

    Nov 24, 2012, 5:01 PM EDT

    Jeff Keppinger AP

    According to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com, the Yankees have renewed their “longstanding interest” in free agent infielder Jeff Keppinger. The Yankees have Eduardo Nunez and Jayson Nix on their roster, but they are currently seeking a veteran infielder who can play third base and fill in at shortstop with Derek Jeter coming off ankle surgery.…

    I would have preferred to have posted this last week, but here’s the remainder of the updated top 111 free agents column. In case you missed it, the top 50 was posted last Friday. Players in the top 111 are ranked based not on how I view them, but more on how I believe teams…

  13. “Pursuing A-Rod makes sense for the Phillies”

    Oct 31, 2012, 4:39 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez Getty

    It’s the offseason and free agents can’t even sign yet, so what better time to start some good old fashioned shootin’-the-poop over almost certainly not going to happen roster moves? Today: Corey Seidman and the CSNPhilly.com gang talking about A-Rod to the Phillies! Pursuing A-Rod makes sense for the Phillies, who have a glaring hole…

  14. Heyman: Joe Girardi tried to spare A-Rod’s feelings in playoffs

    Oct 26, 2012, 6:40 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez, Joe Girardi

    Sources told CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman that Yankees manager Joe Girardi had a special request for the Yankee Stadium PA announcer when he removed Alex Rodriguez from postseason games: he had Rodriguez’s name omitted from the switch. Rodriguez was pulled for a pinch-hitter three times in his six postseason starts. Raul Ibanez, of course, homered…

  15. Hal Steinbrenner says Alex Rodriguez is getting too much of the blame

    Oct 19, 2012, 7:01 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez Getty

    Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner had a telephone interview with the Associated Press earlier today and you’ll be shocked to learn that he was asked about Alex Rodriguez. While Steinbrenner wouldn’t discuss any speculation about whether Rodriguez will be back in New York next season, he did say that the the 37-year-old is getting too much…

  16. This just isn’t the time for Yankees to trade Alex Rodriguez

    Oct 19, 2012, 1:04 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    As far as I can tell, Alex Rodriguez committed two crimes this month. He played pretty horribly in the playoffs, which hardly put him among the minority of Yankees hitters, and he embarrassed his team by reportedly trying to get a woman’s digits from the dugout. In the case of the latter, absolutely no one…

  17. Alex Rodriguez says he has no plans to waive no-trade clause

    Oct 18, 2012, 9:33 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez Getty

    The Yankees have been ousted from the postseason, but the saga of Alex Rodriguez continues. Rodriguez told Peter Botte of the New York Daily News after today’s loss to the Tigers that he has no plans to waive his no-trade clause and intends to return to the Yankees next season. “That’s correct. I will be…

  18. Ranking the blame as Yankees get swept

    Oct 18, 2012, 7:47 PM EDT

    Robinson Cano

    It takes more than a couple of goats for a team to get swept in a seven-game series. Let’s run down the five people most responsible for the Yankee meltdown. Derek Jeter‘s ankle not being a person, we’ll leave it out of this. 5. Eric Chavez – Alex Rodriguez struggled mightily, yet Chavez was worse.…

  21. Joe Girardi goes down with his hand-picked nine

    Oct 17, 2012, 12:07 AM EDT

    Joe Girardi, Brian Cashman

    Benched sluggers Alex Rodriguez and Nick Swisher never budged, and lefty Phil Coke was allowed to face three left-handers and switch-hitter Mark Teixeira in escaping the ninth inning of Detroit’s 2-1 win over the Yankees on Tuesday. Coke replaced Justin Verlander after the ace’s 132nd pitch retired Brett Gardner for the first out of the…

  22. An oddly timed benching for Alex Rodriguez

    Oct 16, 2012, 6:06 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    Alex Rodriguez appears about as helpless as a week-old kitten at the plate at the moment, at least when he’s facing right-handers, but that doesn’t make it any less baffling that manager Joe Girardi chose tonight’s Game 3 to bench him. That’s because of the four homers the Yankees hit off Justin Verlander this year,…

  24. Brett Gardner could get a shot in the starting lineup

    Oct 15, 2012, 7:25 PM EDT

    Brett Gardner Getty

    Yankees manager Joe Girardi has been resistant to use Brett Gardner in the starting lineup because he only has four at-bats in the majors (including one on Saturday) since his elbow injury in mid-April, but the team’s continued struggles on offense have them reconsidering matters. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman was on the “The Michael…

  25. Alex Rodriguez goes 0-for-3, gets removed for pinch-hitter

    Oct 13, 2012, 11:05 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    Alex Rodriguez got the start on Saturday, but he wasn’t around for the finish. After going 0-for-3, he was removed for pinch-hitter Eric Chavez with the Yankees down to the Tigers 4-0 in the eighth inning of Game 1 of the ALCS. Up with the bases loaded and two outs in the first, Rodriguez hit…
