On Monday, the Colorado Rockies announced that RHP Jhoulys Chacin will rehab with Triple-A Colorado Springs on Thursday when the team faces the Iowa Cubs at Security Service Field.
The 6-foot-3, 215 pound righty was sidelined during the early parts of Spring Training because of a shoulder injury, and was placed on the 15-day disabled list to start the regular season.
Since the start of the season, Chacin has made two rehab starts with High-A Modesto and will now progress to pitch for the Sky Sox.
In his two starts with the Nuts, the 26-year-old native of Venezuela had a record of 0-2 with an 8.59 ERA. In 7.1 innings, he gave up seven runs on eight hits, while striking out four and walking three.
Chacin is coming off possibly his best season at the big league level. He made 31 starts in 2013 finishing with a 14-10 record and a career-best 3.47 ERA. In 197.1 innings pitched, Chacin struck out 126 batters against 61 walks.
He has made three separate stints with Colorado Springs, with his most recent being in 2012. In two starts, we compiled a 1-1 record with a 2.63 ERA in 13.2 innings. He struck out five and walked five.
In total, Chacin has made 13 starts with the Sky Sox and has a 5-5 record with a 2.26 ERA and 50 strikeouts in 63.2 innings.
