Red Sox call up Yacksel Ríos, option Michael Chavis to Worcester

The Red Sox made a little bit of a surprising move early this week, calling up Michael Chavis to the active roster to take the spot of Ryan Weber. It wasn’t surprising that Weber was designated for assignment, but rather that they added a position player instead of a fresh arm for the bullpen. Well, as it turns out, it wasn’t for long. The team announced prior to Wednesday’s game in Atlanta that they were sending Chavis back down to Worcester, calling up Yacksel Ríos.

Red Sox's Michael Chavis: Sent back to minors

The Red Sox optioned Chavis to Triple-A Worcester on Wednesday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports. Boston was in need of an extra arm out of the bullpen after starter Eduardo Rodriguez was able to give Boston only four innings in Tuesday's 10-8 win over Atlanta, so Chavis will cede his spot on the active roster to reliever Yacksel Rios. Chavis didn't appear off the bench for Boston during his two-day stint with the club.

Red Sox Minor League Players of the Week: Michael Chavis and Aldo Ramirez lead the charge in Week 6

Welcome to a new feature here at Over The Monster in which we will be looking at the best players on the farm from the past week. With the new minor-league schedule being implemented this year that has teams playing six-game series every week with Mondays off, there are no Minor Lines on Tuesdays. We figured rather than just leaving that timeslot blank every week, we’d hand out some fake, virtual hardware. Each week, we’ll pick players of the week for both position players and pitchers, as well as an honorable mention in each category. (See Previous Winners Here)

Red Sox's Michael Chavis: Recalled by Boston

Chavis was recalled by the Red Sox on Monday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

During his stint at the Triple-A level, he hit .275 with three home runs, 13 runs and 12 RBI in 17 games. Ryan Weber was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

Red Sox call up Michael Chavis, designate Ryan Weber

The Red Sox have been shuffling through the bottom of their bullpen a ton of late, making three moves in the matter of a week or so with that last bullpen spot. Now, they are taking a man out of the bullpen again, but this time they’ll be replacing him with a position player. Chris Cotillo of Masslive reported on Monday that they were calling Michael Chavis back up to the majors. Ryan Weber was designated for assignment to make room on the roster.

Red Sox's Michael Chavis: Sent back to Triple-A

Chavis was optioned to Triple-A Worcester on Monday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. Chavis had been up since early May and hit well enough in a part-time role, recording a .758 OPS in 33 trips to the plate. His 0:13 BB:K told a very different story, however. He'll get regular at-bats at the Triple-A level, with Christian Arroyo (hand) expected to return from the injured list to take his big-league bench role.

Red Sox option Michael Chavis back to Worcester

The Red Sox had recently suffered a little bit of a tough time with some of their role players on offense, waiting for Danny Santana to be ready for his season debut while also losing both Kiké Hernández and Christian Arroyo to short-term injuries. Santana and Hernández are both up with the active roster now, and after a couple of rehab appearances it would seem Arroyo is not far behind. That part of the move has not been made official just yet, but the part where they clear room for him has. The team announced on Monday that Michael Chavis was being optioned back down to Worcester.

Chavis was originally recalled from the WooSox back on May 7, when utility man Enrique Hernandez was placed on the 10-day injured list due to a right hamstring strain. In his second stint with Boston this season, the 25-year-old went 9-for-33 (.273) at the plate with one home run, four doubles, two RBI, six runs scored, zero walks, and 13 strikeouts over 10 games (seven starts) primarily at first and second base.

Fantasy Baseball Buy and Sell: Michael Chavis, Willie Calhoun, Tommy Pham, and more!

It’s time for some fantasy baseball buy or sell chatter!. 1B/2B/OF Michael Chavis, Boston Red Sox (3% rostered) Once a highly touted prospect, Chavis lost favor after a number of demotions back to the minors, coupled with a 2020 season when he had a .212 batting average and a 31.6% strikeout rate. That said, his first taste of the majors yielded a .254 average and a 2:1 Run and RBI per-game pace (small sample size but would average out to 324 runs and RBI). He’s in a good headspace fighting for a spot on the team, and his recent play is on the upswing. Grab him while you can before he emerges.

The Red Sox had a good weekend all things considered, taking two of three from the Angels. That said, their loss on Sunday served as a reminder that they are still searching for a formula in the bullpen in which they can be confident. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe) It was...
