RHP Jhoulys Chacin set to join rotation for Triple-A Indians
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/13/15) Right-hander Jhoulys Chacin is set to join the rotation at Triple-A Columbus after spending time building up his arm strength at the Indians facility in Arizona, per the Northeast Ohio Media Group.
Chacin, signed in mid-April, had been released by Colorado three weeks earlier. He lost the second half of last season to shoulder surgery.
The disappointing Cleveland staff is seeking help in the bullpen and in terms of rotation depth. Chacin struggled mightily last year before going down, but enjoyed his finest season in 2013.

|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/14/15) The Indians announced Tuesday they signed starting pitcher Jhoulys Chacin to a minor-league contract. Chacin had been a free agent since being released by the Rockies on March 22.
Chacin will report to Arizona to build up arm strength at the team's development complex before being assigned to the roster at Triple-A Columbus.
The 27-year-old Chacin is 38-48 with a 3.78 ERA in six MLB seasons -- all with the Rockies.
Rockies release Jhoulys Chacin
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/22/15) The Rockies announced Sunday that pitcher Jhoulys Chacin has been granted his unconditional release.
Chacin had been working his way back from a shoulder injury that ended his 2014 season prematurely. He allowed four runs in three innings while throwing 64 pitches Saturday. For the spring, the pitcher has posted a 6.52 ERA and 5:4 K:BB ratio in 9 2/3 innings while giving up 16 hits.
Chacin has made 109 starts and 15 relief appearances for the Rockies over the last six seasons, posting a 3.78 ERA and 514:280 K:BB ratio in 672 innings.
Rockies pitcher Jhoulys Chacin struggles in outing Saturday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/21/15) Rockies pitcher Jhoulys Chacin surrendered four runs on seven hits in three innings of work Saturday against the Dodgers. Chacin threw 64 pitches in his longest outing of spring training since suffering a shoulder injury last season and was frustrated with his pitch location after the game, reports the Denver Post.
"I had really good stuff with my slider and changeup," Chacin said. "But I had really poor location. I was leaving too much in the middle."
Manager Walt Weiss was happy to see Chacin throw with confidence in the game.
"I liked the fact that Jhoulys had more confidence in his fastball," Weiss said. "He was at 64 pitches today. We wanted to extend him. And he responded well to that. The big part of spring is building him back up and seeing how he responds between each start."
Rockies' Jhoulys Chacin (shoulder) 'felt very good' in spring debut
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/5/15) Rockies pitcher Jhoulys Chacin made his spring debut Thursday, and though he surrendered two earned runs in 1 2/3 innings, he "felt very good" with the outing, the Denver Post reports.
"I felt very good, and I hope I can keep going like this all year," Chacin said. "I threw a lot of changeups and sliders today because that’s what I’ve been working on. I have been working on the slider because that’s my strikeout pitch."
Chacin was making his first appearance in a game since June 28 after missing much of the 2014 season due to a shoulder injury. Manager Walt Weiss said that the pitcher was throwing with less effort than he did last spring.
"We are trying to build him back up this spring," Weiss said. "The main thing is that he’s healthy and able to bounce back. There is no reason to think he’s not going to be fine."
Chacin went 1-7 with a 5.40 ERA and 42:28 K:BB ratio in 63 1/3 innings over 11 starts last season.
|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.
