Camden Chat: Is this the end for Endy Chavez?
http://www.camdencha...ioles#storyjump

Obviously a very rough first 55 ab's for Chavez this year. His OPS is .318, which is less than his on-base % (.323) alone last year. (.749 OPS, 19 xbh's in 256 ab's.)

You wonder how the sore abdomen is impacting him?

I won't beat him to death, I'm sure he will be better than he has shown. I just don't want to see him leading off again. He can help a roster as a reserve 4th OF, defensive replacement. Just looks to be a guy that would be greatly exposed when forced to play everyday.

Well, he did okay last year and had 274 plate appearances. I don't think he's worn out or over exposed. Just slumping. He hit about .500 this spring and slumped towards the end. I think you can putting him out there until Reimold comes back and then spot him and use him as a defensive replacement in the late innings for Reimold. I agree that he should bat 9th for now and maybe forever but I'd rather have him out there than Betemit. Chavez will hit eventually and his tons better with the glove. The O's have been lucky that defense hasn't cost them more games. Time to stop depending on luck and put a better defensive team on the field.

He is being misused.

He isn't an everyday player and he isn't a leadoff hitter.

He is a guy that should start 1, maybe 2 games a week and be a late inning defensive replacement for Reimold and/or pinch runner late for someone like Wieters.

That's it.

Buck has played him entirely too much, even when Reimold was healthy and batting him leadoff is just moronic.

He's leading off tonight. Hopefully we bunt him every time, because he ain't getting on base if he swings.

Endy getting no love but your post almost guarantees one clean base hit. Thank you.

A friend of mine was asking me this and I could not come up with a great reason why, so I thought someone could help me here. How is Endy Chavez still playing for the Orioles? He's not really hitting that great. I know that he's trying and that this might end up just being a slump, but I would figure that the Orioles should have had Xavier Avery up here more. Gives the club more speed.

I am sure they feel Endy will seek his career levels at some point. They have had the bad are hoping for the good. If Endy could find his way to first base more than once a month, he could provide a little speed. He is a solid defensive outfielder, IMO.

Tolleson getting the start in LF tonight, that's great to see. Glad to see him come back so soon, I know it was tough for Buck to send him down.

It's great that he's playing so well as of late, because sadly, he's very much needed with the losses of Nick and Wilson.

Chavez is a perfect example of why this team has succeeded this year. When some guys are cold or there are injuries, unlikely players are helping to carry the load. Based on ability alone, Chavez really has no business getting 4 hits in a game, but look what he did. I haven't been a fan of his at all this season, but him not being an automatic out since Nick's injury is great.

Well, he's never gonna win a Silver Slugger... but he's also not nearly as weak as what we saw from him in the first half either. Every few years he will hit .300 with a decent OBP, it's just that we didn't see any of that early on. He was amazingly weak in the first half of the season, but since June was over he's actually done way, way better than maybe it feels like... it's mainly that he was so lame early on that he got typecast... if you look into it, he's actually been making up for it lately...

I recall there was a sizable faction who wanted to keep Gregg instead of Endy, so far it looks like DFAing Gregg and bringing up Endy was a good move.

In Endy's limited 2nd half action, he's hitting .342/.390/.526. Only 42 plate appearances, but still. Considering he can play defense well and pinch run, I'd say he's got plenty of value right now, even moreso with the Markakis injury.
