Rangers' Chavez gets 'legitimate' start vs. Tigers

Veteran right-hander Jesse Chavez makes his fifth start of the season Tuesday, but this one will be a bit different.

Primarily a long reliever for the Texas Rangers, Chavez, 35, was used as an "opener" in his previous starts before giving way in the early innings. He'll get a more traditional start at Detroit on Tuesday when the Rangers begin a three-game series against the Tigers.

For the time being, Chavez will take the spot previously held by left-hander Drew Smyly, who was designated for assignment last week after posting a 1-5 mark and 8.42 ERA.
