Journeyman hurler Jesse Chavez has seen action with nine teams in a thirteen-season career (as of the end of the 2020 season). After laboring in relief exclusively apart from two starts in 2012, Jesse was a big wheel in the Oakland A's rotation in 2014, going 8-8 with a 3.45 ERA and striking out 136 hitters in 32 games (146 innings). When he regressed somewhat in 2015 (7-15, 4.18, 136 strikeouts in 30 games and 157 innings), it was back to bouncing around. He enjoyed a really good season in relief split between the Chicago Cubs and Texas Rangers in 2018, with a 5-2, 2.55 record, 5 saves and 92 strikeouts in 95 1/3 innings, parlaying this success into a two-year deal with the Rangers.
