RHP Jhoulys Chacin set to join rotation for Triple-A Indians


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2015) 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.


Indians sign Jhoulys Chacin to minor-league deal


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) 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
(3/22/2015) 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
(3/21/2015) 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
(3/5/2015) 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.


Rockies' Jhoulys Chacin faces hitters for first time Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/1/2015) 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
(1/25/2015) 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
(1/16/2015) 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
(12/3/2014) 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."

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.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."

Rockies concerned about drop in velocity for Jhoulys Chacin


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2014) Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Sunday the team is concerned about the drop in velocity for starting pitcher Jhoulys Chacin, who gave up a season-high seven runs in 5 2/3 innings Saturday against Milwaukee.

Chacin is averaging 89.4 mph on his four-seam fastball and 88.5 mph on his sinker after averaging 91.6 mph and 90.4 mph, respectively, last season, per BrooksBaseball.net.

"We've been looking at it," Weiss said, per MLB.com. "We're seeing the same thing. The ball maybe is not coming out of his hand like we're used to seeing it. He's such a tough kid that he's finding a way to compete without his stuff. That's ongoing. We talk to him before every start, in between starts. He says he feels fine. No pain, just takes a little longer to get loose and those types of things. It's something that we'll continue to monitor with him. The ball's not coming out the same way we saw it last year."
