Braves' Jesse Chavez: Activated from 60-day IL
Atlanta activated Chavez (shin) from the 60-day injured list Tuesday.
Chavez has finally been cleared to return to major-league action following a three-month absence to heal a microfracture in his left shin. The veteran reliever was sporting a 1.55 ERA and 36:9 K:BB through 29 innings prior to the injury and tallied six strikeouts over 3.1 scoreless frames during a three-appearance rehab stint with Triple-A Gwinnett....

Braves' Jesse Chavez: Cleared for rehab assignment
Chavez (shin) is set to begin a rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Gwinnett.
Chavez has been on the shelf since mid-June due to a microfracture in his left shin, but he's thrown several rounds of live batting practice without issue and will now return to live appearances on the farm. The veteran reliever could be an option again for Atlanta's bullpen within the next week if all goes well during his minor-league rehab stint.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Jesse Chavez: Faces hitters again Friday
Chavez (shin) threw another round of live batting practice Friday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
That could be the final step before he is cleared to begin a minor-league rehab assignment. Chavez has been out since mid-June because of a microfracture in his left shin, but he looks poised to return to Atlanta's bullpen for the closing weeks of the regular season. He'd registered a 1.55 ERA and 36:9 K:BB in 29 innings prior to the lengthy IL stint.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Jesse Chavez: Facing hitters again
Chavez (shin) said Monday that he threw a live batting practice session without any discomfort, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
The 40-year-old right-hander has been on the shelf since mid-June with what was initially diagnosed as a left shin contusion, but after he underwent an MRI once the swelling on his leg subsided, he was revealed to have suffered a microfracture. The updated diagnosis explains why Chavez has been on the mend for nearly two months, but he appears to be nearly healed up from the microfracture. Chavez said he'll first need to prove that he can run at full speed and field his position without issue before getting the green light to head out on a rehab assignment, possibly within the next week or two....

Braves' Jesse Chavez: Heads to 60-day IL
Atlanta transferred Chavez (shin) to the 60-day injured list from the 15-day IL on Sunday.
Chavez's move to the 60-day IL comes as no major surprise after manager Brian Snitker disclosed Saturday that the right-hander was still walking with a limp and was "weeks away" from being activated. The 39-year-old was initially deactivated June 15 due to a left shin contusion and won't be eligible to rejoin the Atlanta bullpen until around mid-August.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Jesse Chavez: Weeks away from return
Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said Saturday that Chavez (shin) is still walking with a slight limp, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
Chavez had been gearing up to begin throwing off a mound at last check, but Snitker noted Saturday that the veteran reliever is still probably "weeks away" from returning to full strength. He's been on the shelf since mid-June due to a severe left shin contusion.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Jesse Chavez: Eyeing bullpen session
Chavez (shin) said Friday that he hopes to throw a bullpen session next week, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
Chavez's time on the shelf will extend beyond a month, but if he stays on schedule from here, he could return to the Atlanta bullpen in about two weeks. The veteran right-hander was pitching brilliantly before suffering a shin contusion on a comebacker (1.55 ERA, 1.03 WHIP). Chavez will pitch important innings for the team down the stretch, but there probably won't be many leftover saves available behind the likes of Raisel Iglesias, Kirby Yates and A.J. Minter (shoulder).... See More ... See Less
Braves' Jesse Chavez: Throwing long-toss
Chavez (shin) threw long toss in the outfield Friday, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Chavez was shut down for a period after landing on the injured list June 15 due to a left shin contusion, but he's begun to ramp things up and could make it back to Atlanta's bullpen before the All-Star break. The veteran reliever had pitched to a terrific 1.55 ERA and 36:9 K:BB in 29 innings prior to the IL stint.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Jesse Chavez: Won't come off IL when eligible
Chavez (shin) is making progress, but he won't be ready to come off the injured list when first eligible, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
Chavez would be eligible to come off the injured list this weekend against the Marlins, but the right-hander won't be ready to do so. It's likely Chavez will need a rehab assignment because of his relatively lengthy absence, and he likely won't be back in the Atlanta bullpen until around the All-Star break, at the very earliest....

Braves' Jesse Chavez: Placed on 15-day IL
Atlanta placed Chavez on the 15-day injured list Thursday with a left shin contusion.
X-rays turned up clean for any structural damage after Chavez got struck by a hard-hit comebacker during a relief appearance Wednesday versus the Tigers, but he woke up Thursday in considerable discomfort and will be rested until at least the final day of June. The veteran reliever leaves behind a sharp 1.55 ERA and 36:9 K:BB through 29 innings.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Jesse Chavez: Significant leg soreness
Chavez woke up Thursday with a "very sore" left leg, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
Chavez took a 99-mph one-hop comebacker off his shin while making a relief appearance Wednesday afternoon against the Tigers. X-rays came back negative, but he'll likely be unavailable for a portion of Atlanta's four-game series against the Rockies, which gets underway Thursday night at Truist Park. There's a possibility that he could be placed on the injured list.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Jesse Chavez: Results come back negative
Additional tests on Chavez's left leg came back negative Wednesday, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Chavez was removed from Wednesday's game after getting hit by a comebacker, but all tests have confirmed that no significant damage was done. More information regarding a return for Chavez will likely come Thursday, but the veteran reliever is officially listed as day-to-day.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Jesse Chavez: Avoids leg fracture
Chavez avoided structural damage to his left leg Wednesday after X-rays on his shin bone returned negative, but he's scheduled to undergoing further testing, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Chavez threw just four pitches in his relief appearance Wednesday in Atlanta's 10-7 win in Game 1 of a doubleheader with the Tigers before exiting after being struck by a comebacker. He was unable to walk off the field under his own power, but the fact that he at least avoided a fracture can be taken as a positive development at this stage. Atlanta should have a better idea on whether Chavez will require at trip to the injured list based on what the upcoming tests reveal.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Jesse Chavez: Exits after being hit by comebacker
Chavez was removed from Wednesday's appearance versus the Tigers after being hit on the left leg by a comebacker, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Chavez went down in a heap after being hit by a ball off the bat of Miguel Cabrera and wasn't even able to get up to make a play on it. He had to be carried off the field and is surely headed for X-rays. Chavez threw just four pitches and faced the one batter in the appearance before leaving.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Jesse Chavez: Functions well as opener
Chavez allowed a hit and a walk while striking out three over 2.1 scoreless innings Saturday versus Seattle. He did not factor in the decision.
Chavez was effective as the opener Saturday, and he recorded the most outs of any Atlanta pitcher while throwing 26 of 42 pitches for strikes. The veteran right-hander has seen some high-leverage work this season with a save and eight holds in 22 appearances. He's maintained a 2.21 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 25:6 K:BB through 20.1 innings this season, and he's allowed just two runs (one earned) over 10 innings in May.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Jesse Chavez: Starting Saturday vs. Mariners
Chavez will start Saturday's game against the Mariners, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
Chavez will act as an opener in what will be a bullpen day for Atlanta. The veteran right-hander will not go deep enough to qualify for a win and he shouldn't be streamed for fantasy purposes.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Jesse Chavez: Notches league-leading seventh hold
Chavez struck out two in a scoreless seventh inning Tuesday to record his seventh hold of the season in an 8-1 win over the Padres.
Atlanta scored six of its eight runs in the final two frames, erasing a potential save situation, but Chavez still collected his league-leading seventh hold, tying him with the Mets' Brooks Raley. The 39-year-old Chavez has had a remarkable start to the season, posting a 0.00 ERA and 9:1 K:BB through nine innings and 10 appearances, but he's been able to work his way into a high-leverage role in part due to injuries to Raisel Iglesias (shoulder), Collin McHugh (shoulder) and Tyler Matzek (elbow). Once the Atlanta bullpen gets healthier, and Chavez's numbers begin to tumble back down to Earth, he figures to fade back into middle relief.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Jesse Chavez: Collects rare save
Chavez recorded the final out of Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Cardinals to pick up his first save of the season.
A.J. Minter had pitched in the first two games of the series while Joe Jimenez has thrown 16 pitches the night before and may not be ready to work back-to-back days after offseason back surgery, so when Collin McHugh allowed a run in the bottom of the ninth inning to create a save situation, it was Chavez who got the call to close things out. It's the 39-year-old right-hander's first save since 2019, and while he's capable of serving in a variety of roles in the Atlanta bullpen, he's unlikely to see consistent high-leverage work. Through four appearances this season, Chavez holds a 0.00 ERA over 3.2 innings with a hold and a 3:0 K:BB in addition to Wednesday's save.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Jesse Chavez: Secures roster spot
Chavez had his contract selected by Atlanta on Thursday.
Chavez re-signed with Atlanta on a minor-league deal in November, and he grabbed a spot on the Opening Day roster after giving up four earned runs with a 10:2 K:BB across 8.1 innings during spring training. The veteran right-hander had a 3.76 ERA in 69.1 frames last year and should fill a middle-relief role out of the bullpen in 2023.... See More ... See Less
