|Jan. 12 3:51 PM PT4:51 PM MT5:51 PM CT6:51 PM ET18:51 ET23:51 GMT7:51 4:51 PM MST6:51 PM EST7:21 PM VEN3:51 UAE (+1)5:51 PM CT-Chavez and the Oakland Athletics have agreed to a $2.15 million, one-year contract that avoided salary arbitration.
Analysis: Chavez stepped in as a key member of the rotation in 2014 when projected starters Jarrod Parker and A.J. Griffin were each lost for the year to elbow injuries that required surgery. Chavez, 31, went 8-8 with a 3.45 ERA with 21 starts and 32 appearances for a career-high 146 innings last year, when he made $775,000. The wins were his most in parts of seven major league seasons with Oakland, Kansas City, Pittsburgh, Atlanta and Toronto.
