Angel Chavez had a grand slam and a two-run homer as a Red Sox split-squad rolled over Northeastern 14-0 on Saturday.

Josh Bard also homered for Boston, and Jed Lowrie drove in three runs. Chavez served brief stints in the majors with the Giants in 2005 and the Dodgers last season. He was signed to a minor league deal this winter to give the Red Sox more infield depth in Triple-A.

Angel Chavez has accepted his assignment to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Chavez, 26, was the Dodgers' 25th man to open the season, but he didn't see any playing time in four days before being designated for assignment. If the team's infielders can stay healthy, he won't be heard from again.

Dodgers designated infielder Angel Chavez for assignment.

Chavez didn't get into a game during his four days with the Dodgers.

Orioles acquired infielder Angel Chavez from the Phillies as the player to be named in the Jeff Conine trade.

Unimpressive. Chavez, 25, was hitting .265/.308/.416 in 449 at-bats between Double-A Reading and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. At best, he'll be a defensive-minded utilityman in the majors.

The Phillies claimed infielder Angel Chavez off waivers from the Giants and assigned him to Double-A Reading.

Chavez, 24, hit .281/.320/.449 for Triple-A Fresno before spending last September in the majors with the Giants. We're guessing he would have made it through waivers if not for his .293/.414/.466 line this spring. He's a utilityman at best, and the Phillies probably won't call on him until September.

Giants designated infielder Angel Chavez for assignment.

We're not high on Chavez at all, but given that he's hit .293/.414/.466 in 58 at-bats this spring, some team may him a look. He has options remaining.

Angel Chavez went 2-for-3 with a homer and three RBI yesterday for Culiacan of the MPL.

Chavez, who spent September as a backup infielder for the Giants, was hitting just .184/.264/.280 in 125 AB in Mexico. He's unlikely to have a spot on next year's club.

Giants purchased the contract of infielder Angel Chavez from Triple-A Fresno.

Chavez, 24, hit .283/.310/.442 in 30 games for Single-A San Jose and .281/.320/.449 in 89 games for Fresno. He's a pretty good defender at shortstop, but it's unlikely that he'll hit in the majors. The Giants will try to figure out whether he's a candidate to make next year's squad as a utilityman.
