Eric Chavez says he's ready for opening day.
Chavez, who is rehabbing from shoulder surgery, started and played third in the Oakland Athletics' 9-5 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday, his first back-to-back games in the field this spring.
Chavez was limited to designated hitter duties early in the spring, and then he had a setback that cost him about two weeks. On Monday, Chavez had a double and a walk in three trips to the plate. He is 3-for-17 this spring, but he's 2-for-6 since he returned to the lineup following his setback.
Dodgers left-fielder Manny Ramirez dropped a fly ball on the warning track, then fell down while trying to make a running catch, drawing an error, during the A's four-run second inning.
