Chavez starting at third
Apr. 19, 2009 (Contra Costa Times delivered by Newstex ) --

Quick update here from Rogers Center, where the As wrap up a three-game series against the Blue Jays . A victory today would give them the series win and take some good vibes into a three-game series w/the Yankees, where the intensity is sure to crank up a notch.

Eric Chavez is in the lineup at third base. He threw this morning and took BP and looked good (thats according to Bob Geren, who was pitching to him). Still no Nomar Garciaparra, who cant lick this right calf problem. ?He feels better today than he did yesterday, Geren said, adding that the DL is not being discussed yet for Nomar. Not having his right-handed bat has hurt in this series, as Toronto has gone w/three left-handed starting pitchers. The As also get lefties Andy Pettitte and C.C. Sabathia out of the chute in New York.

Jason Giambi is at DH, w/Landon Powell playing first base, his second start there in the past four games. Its an effort to preserve Giambis legs a bit. Plus, Geren wanted to get Powell, a switch hitter, into the lineup without sitting Kurt Suzuki, another right-handed bat.

As lineup: Sweeney CF; Cabrera SS; Giambi DH; Holliday LF; Cust RF; Chavez 3B; Suzuki C; Ellis 2B; Powell 1B; Braden P

Jays lineup: Scutaro SS; Hill 2B; Rios RF; Wells CF; Millar DH; Rolen 3B; Overbay 1B; Raul Chavez C; Snider LF; Romero P
