Chavez has 3rd surgery in 2 months...
Ouch! That huge contract might bite us in the butt. Wonder if the team has an insurance policy???
[AP] OAKLAND, Calif. -- Oakland Athletics third baseman Eric Chavez had his third operation in two months, a procedure Friday to remove damaged tissue from his left shoulder.
He is expected to begin physical therapy in about a week.
The six-time Gold Glove winner had right shoulder surgery Sept. 5 for a torn labrum and to repair a damaged biceps tendon and remove a loose body from the joint. Dr. Lewis Yocum performed that operation. Chavez had surgery on his back Oct. 9.
Chavez, who hit .240 with 15 home runs in an injury-shortened 2007 season, has struggled with back and arm problems for two years. The A's are hopeful he will be healthy come February for the start of spring training.
He appeared in just 90 games and spent the final two months of the year on the disabled list
