Latest Update Endy Chavez (finger) remains out of the Mariners' starting lineup Tuesday. Tue Jul, 29, 05:05 PM
Has great wheels on the bases and great range. Can play all three outfield positions. Is an excellent contact hitter who doesn't strike out often.
Flaws: : Likes to go after the first pitch and often falls behind in the count as a result. Rarely takes a walk. Doesn't have nearly enough power.
He hurt his pinky finger on Friday and has been out since Saturday. James Jones and Dustin Ackley have been getting extra playing time in his absence. Analyst: Mark Kaplan
That is the kind of injury that would make the outfielder day-to-day, depending on severity. It could affect his ability to swing a bat, however, and that would severely damage his value for fantasy purposes.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
The late scratch indicates an injury as the reason, but no details have been released yet. Even so, it is not like Chavez was a fantasy darling, hitting only .261 with a single homer and four steals.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
Although Chavez has given the Mariners a spark while sitting atop the starting lineup, Monday's run production was the first time in 10 games in which he finished with an RBI, let alone three in a game. Until he shows more consistency and raises both his batting average (.239 BA) and on-base percentage (.257 OBP), there is no reason to make him a fantasy consideration. Analyst: Matthew Beck
