Michael Chavis: Elbow injury not expected to be season-ending

Pirates infielder Michael Chavis, who is dealing with an elbow injury, is going to rest for five to seven days. Beat reporter Alex Stumpf notes that doctors are "optimistic he will play again this season."

Fantasy Impact

Chavis felt elbow soreness while making a throw and was eventually replaced on the 10-day IL. The good news is that doctors do not expect the injury to be season-ending, though the out-of-contention Pirates surely won't rush the 26-year-old back into action any sooner than needed. He has gone 8-for-22 since being called up from Triple-A on August 23rd.

Michael Chavis gets moved to Pittsburgh

INF/OF Michael Chavis has been traded to Pittsburgh to play for the Pirates as part of the 2021 MLB trade deadline.

Fantasy Impact

Chavis has had an up and down 2021 campaign, hitting just below the Mendoza line at .190 with a pair of homers and six RBIs. He's bounced between the majors and minors this season but he figures to be part of the MLB roster for a Pirates team that isn't winning games in 2021.

Michael Chavis optioned to Triple-A

The Red Sox optioned Michael Chavis to Triple-A Worcester.

Fantasy Impact

Chavis just hasn't recaptured the promise he showed as a rookie in 2019. Christian Arroyo (knee) returns from the IL as a corresponding move.

Michael Chavis once again recalled from Triple-A

The Red Sox recalled INF Michael Chavis from Triple-A Worcester.

A corresponding move has yet to be announced, but it's likely that Christian Arroyo winds up on the IL. Chavis isn't a fantasy option at this time.
