Chavez was hit hard Monday in a loss to the Astros, giving up six runs on five hits, including three home runs, three walks and five strikeouts over 5.1 innings.
It was long balls by Chris Carter, Jason Castro and Marc Krauss that did Chavez in. July has been unkind to the 30-year-old, who has been hit to the tune of a 5.20 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and .279 batting average against. Chavez faces the Royals on Sunday.
