 OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -The Athletics' Eric Chavez has been dealing with back problems most of his professional career. His latest setback has him baffled.
Chavez was unable to hit or do any type of baseball activities on Thursday as planned. Instead he received further treatment on his quirky back.
``It really hasn't gone as planned,'' said the six-time Gold Glove winner after missing his eighth straight game and 14 of the A's last 17. ``I've had back problems before and recovered from them pretty quickly. This one is a little puzzling.''
Chavez has never spent time on the disabled list because of his back, and neither he nor A's manager Bob Geren thinks that's still a possibility.
``I'm not sure what the plan is,'' Chavez said. ``I want to get healthy before I do anything.''
Chavez is batting .240, which would be a career low, with 15 home runs and 46 RBIs. He's hitting just .204 with runners in scoring position.
Chavez was limited to 137 games last year because of tendinitis in both forearms and a sore hamstring, though he did not go on the disabled list.
