Chavez allowed five earned runs over 4.0 innings en route to picking up a no decision Thursday against the Yankees. He allowed seven hits and two walks while adding three strikeouts.

EDGE Analysis

The Angels' provided a late spark to take the lead over the Yankees, which saved Chavez from taking his eighth loss of the season. Chavez's ERA now sits at 5.15 and his strikeout rate coming into Thursday's outing sat at a mere 6.72 per nine innings. He's set to start Tuesday against a Dodgers lineup that is remarkably tough on right-handed pitchers.

Chavez (5-7) took the loss despite allowing two runs on nine hits over seven innings. He struck out four and did not walk a batter.

EDGE Analysis

With the exception of not being able to figure out Lorenzo Cain, who homered and drove in another run off of him, Chavez was very good. The problem was that Royals starter Ian Kennedy was better. However, it was a nice rebound start for Chavez after he allowed six runs over 3.2 innings his last time out.

Chavez allowed six runs on four hits and four walks while striking out three batters over 3.2 innings during Sunday's win over Houston. He didn't factor into the decision.

EDGE Analysis

The Astros own the league's highest-scoring offense, so Chavez probably shouldn't have been turned to in the first place Sunday. However, it's been a year-long struggle for the 33-year-old righty, as he sports a 5.06 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 6.9 K/9. Those numbers aren't moving the fantasy needle, and Chavez is probably best ignored outside of cavernous settings. A date with the Royals is up next for the veteran.

Chavez (5-6) allowed two runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out four over 5.2 innings in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

He held Detroit scoreless for five innings before tiring in the sixth, a pattern that's been common ever since the 33-year-old began taking a regular turn in the rotation a few years ago with Oakland. Chavez gets a tough assignment in his next start Sunday on the road against an Astros squad with a league-leading .353 wOBA against righties.

Chavez fired seven innings of one-run ball Wednesday, but he did not factor into the decision in a 2-1 win over Atlanta.

EDGE Analysis

Chavez finished May on a high note after giving up 10 runs over his previous two starts. He was aggressive in the strike zone (66 strikes to 26 balls) against a Braves lineup that has been without Freddie Freeman and he came out unscathed. Chavez's only run came via the long ball, extending his unenviable home run streak to nine appearances. The veteran's pedestrian 6.9 K/9 and 1.9 HR/9 limit his value to a matchup play in deep formats. That said, his next start against the righty-heavy Tigers (18th in home runs) next Tuesday could provide another favorable matchup.

Chavez (4-6) allowed five earned runs on eight hits and two walks over 3.2 innings in a loss to the Marlins on Friday. He struck out two.

EDGE Analysis

Chavez was victimized by the longball in this contest, giving up home runs to Giancarlo Stanton and J.T. Realmuto. It was a short outing for the veteran, who saw his ERA rise to 5.09 on the season to go along with a 1.32 WHIP. Given the amount of home runs he's given up on the season (2.0 HR/9), it's hard to recommend him as a consistent fantasy option. He'll take the mound on Wednesday at home against Atlanta.

Chavez picked up his fourth win of the season Sunday despite allowing five runs over 5.2 innings. He struck out four in a 12-5 win over the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Chavez worked around a pair of solo home runs through five frames and appeared to be on his way to his third quality start in four outings. Things changed in the sixth when he served up a three-run shot to Jay Bruce and failed to escape the inning. The veteran's day was salvaged by a victory, but his ERA rose to 4.61 on the season. Chavez has exhibited plus control this season (2.8 K/BB), but his lack of command within the strike zone has made him too hittable (1.8 HR/9 and 35.6 percent hard contact rate), limiting his usefulness as a consistent fantasy option.

Chavez (3-5) allowed three runs and five hits (one home run) while walking one and striking out five over seven innings to beat the White Sox 5-3 on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

His fourth quality start of the season lowered his ERA to 4.22 on the season, but his lackluster 7.35 K/9 in 49 innings limits Chavez's value to deep mixed and AL-only leagues based on matchups. The long ball has been an issue, too, as he's surrendered eight dingers in his eight starts.

Chavez (2-5) gave up two runs on three hits and a pair of walks over 5.2 innings in Wednesday's loss to Oakland. He struck out five and hit a batter while throwing 111 pitches.

EDGE Analysis

Andrew Triggs and the Oakland bullpen were just better on the other end, giving up only a single run. Chavez is showing himself to be pretty much the same pitcher he's been for the last few years, whether in the rotation or the bullpen -- an ERA north of 4.00 and a WHIP north of 1.30, but just enough strikeouts and solid outings to tease fantasy owners in need of pitching help. He's nothing more than a spot-start pickup in most formats.

Chavez tossed a quality start Friday, holding the Astros to three runs on four hits over 6.1 innings. He walked two, struck out four and did not factor into the decision in a 7-6 loss.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran starter pitched well against a powerful Astros lineup, notching his third quality start of the season. The overall results have been mediocre (4.46 ERA), but Chavez has provided some value for deep and AL-only owners due to his ability to generate strikeouts (30 in 36.1 innings) and consistently eat up five to six innings per outing. The 33-year-old's next turn in the rotation comes against his former club, the Oakland Athletics, next Wednesday.
