Chavez Done For Season; Headed For Surgery
Chavez, who has won six Gold Gloves as a member of the A's, had three surgeries last season to correct problems with his right shoulder, back and left shoulder. While the left shoulder and back seem to have improved, his right shoulder has continued to cause him problems, especially when he throws. Chavez has appeared in only 23 games this season thanks to his recovery from the three surgeries. He hit .247 with two homers and 14 RBIs in those 23 games.
Chavez has played in 11 seasons with the A's, tied for third all-time for an Oakland Athletics player with Terry Steinbach and only trailing Rickey Henderson (14) and Mark McGwire (12). He leads all Oakland players with 273 career doubles and is fifth all-time in Oakland history in hits with 1,247. He has spent his entire career with the A's and is signed through 2010.
