Rockies' Jhoulys Chacin faces hitters for first time Saturday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/1/15) Rockies pitcher Jhoulys Chacin is feeling good about his health so far in camp. Good enough, in fact, that the 27-year-old faced hitters Saturday for the first time this spring.
Sunday, Chacin said he was without pain.
"Today I feel normal -- not like before," Chacin said. "I threw everything and felt good. I need to get into games to really feel back to normal, like it did two years ago [14-10 with a 3.47 ERA in 31 starts]. I know I've got a long way to go. I don't know what my velocity was, but it'll come up a little."
Chacin injured his rotator cuff in the middle of last season, forcing him out of action for nearly half the season.
Rockies' Jhoulys Chacin ready for bounce back 2015 season
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(1/25/15) Rockies pitcher Jhoulys Chacin had a tough 2014 season. After injuring his shoulder in spring training, Chacin struggled in 11 starts, posting a 1-7 record with a 5.40 ERA in 63 1/3 innings. He suffered right rotator cuff strain, which forced him to miss nearly half the season.
However, manager Walt Weiss is happy with Chacin's progress this offseason.
"He's doing great. He's been throwing and working out really hard. He's had a really good offseason," Weiss said to The Denver Post.
Teammate and pitcher Jorge De La Rosa thinks 2015 will be much kinder to Chacin.
"He surprised me a lot," De La Rosa said. "He was playing catch with me every day (in Scottsdale, Ariz.), and his arm looks really good. His ball really had some life, and he's lost some weight. I think he's getting stronger. He's going to have a good year."
Rockies' Chacin avoids arbitration with hefty $5.5 million contract
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(1/16/15) The Rockies and starting pitcher Jhoulys Chacin have avoided arbitration with a one-year, $5.5 million contract, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman on Friday. He made $4.85 million last season and is set to become a free agent in 2016.
Chacin, 27, went 1-7 with a 5.40 ERA, a 1.44 WHIP and 42:28 K:BB ratio over 11 starts in 2014. He has a career 3.78 ERA through six seasons in the majors.
Rockies' Chacin: 'One year doesn't change who I am'
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(12/3/14) Rockies starting pitcher Jhoulys Chacin is eager to get back on the mound and prove to his doubters he's not finished after being limited to 11 starts in 2014 due to a shoulder injury.
"One year doesn't change who I am," Chacin said, per MLB.com. "The people who think that I'm not going to be the same as I was before, I want to show them they're wrong. I've got a long career still. I want to get back in the game and show how good a pitcher I can be."
Chacin didn't need surgery, but instead was told he needed to strengthen the small muscles in the shoulder capsule.
"They told me if I keep doing the stuff they recommended for the little muscles and keep my arm and shoulder in shape all year, there's a good chance it won't bother me anymore," said Chacin, who was 37-41 with a 3.61 ERA in his first five MLB seasons before going 1-7 with a 5.40 ERA in 2014. "I've been working hard, doing they told me to do, and I can feel the difference.
"In the intrasquad game [last week], I threw pretty well. I used my fastball, curveball, slider, change -- everything. I'd say my arm is 85 percent right now. I just need game action to get it to 100 percent."
Jhoulys Chacin excited with progress in rehab
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(9/24/14) Rockies right-hander Jhoulys Chacin took a step forward toward readiness for 2015 with a throwing session Tuesday and will take another step with a bullpen session Friday, per MLB.com.
Chacin has been shut down since June 28. He lost the rest of his season to a slight labrum tear and rotator cuff injury. He has undergone a strengthening and rehab program rather than opting for surgery.
"I've been pain-free and throwing long-toss every day," Chacin reported. "Today was a really good day for me - long-toss, flat ground and off the mound. I'm really happy."
|2014 Summary: Jhoulys Chacin only made 11 starts, as he started the season late after recovering from a shoulder injury, and then he was shut down in late June with more shoulder woes. Chacin was generally ineffective during his brief time in the rotation, and he finished with a 1-7 record. 5.40 ERA and 1.44 WHIP.|
Playing time status: Chacin is expected to be ready for the start of spring training and stands a good chance of regaining a spot in the Rockies' rotation.
2015 Outlook: In his first two seasons as a starter, Chacin showed unusual promise for a Rockies pitcher, but his fastball velocity has plummeted steadily over the three seasons since then. At age 27, there's still hope for a rebound, but until he shows actual improvement, Chacin is merely filler for an NL-only rotation.
