OAKLAND -- A's third baseman Eric Chavez, a three-time Gold Glove winner who ranks second in the American League with 13 home runs and leads Oakland with 35 RBIs, told MLB.com early Wednesday morning that he has a broken right hand and will miss "at least" three weeks.
 

Sent to an Alameda, Calif., hospital for X-rays after being hit by a pitch from White Sox southpaw Damaso Marte in the 11th inning of Oakland's 6-4 win Tuesday, Chavez, 26, went home knowing that he'll be going on the disabled list for the second time in his six-year career.

"I thought it was going to be fine," Chavez said by phone, two hours after the game ended. "It didn't swell up too bad because after I came out of the game we got some ice on it, so I wasn't too worried about it. I mean, I knew I wasn't going to be able to play [Wednesday] because there's no way I could grip a bat, but I thought maybe I'd be out a couple of days at the most.

"Obviously I was wrong."

This is bad news for us, Chavez has been playing real well and we will miss him badly.
