Chacin is expected to be ready to pitch by the start of spring training, the Denver Post reports. According to fellow pitcher Jorge De La Rosa, Chacin "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."

Chacin admitted after Saturday's game that he's concerned about his lack of arm strength, the Denver Post reports. "I really don't know what's wrong with my arm. I can't get strong," Chacin said. "Even if I throw extra hard, I can get one (pitch), but then I can't throw the next one hard."

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Coming off an injury-shortened 2012 campaign, Chacin executed the organization's template for success at Coors Field to perfection last season, trimming his BB/9 rate from 4.2 to 2.8, while inducing more groundballs and cutting his HR/FB rate in half. In much more forgiving road settings, Chacin's dominance could be even better appreciated, as he delivered a 2.44 ERA away from Coors and held the opposition to a .241 batting average. Although he appears to be a very good real-life pitcher, Chacin's pitch-to-contact approach naturally deflates his strikeout totals, capping his fantasy appeal in spite of his useful 3.47 ERA and 1.26 WHIP. Still just 26 years old, Chacin still seems to have the potential to improve upon the ERA and WHIP figures, especially if his walk rate continues to trend downward in subsequent years. While he'll probably never be the ace of any fantasy staff so long as he remains in Colorado, Chacin could be an underrated asset in mixed leagues if owners can offset the lack of strikeouts.

2013

After being battered in the early months of the season and being sidelined for nearly four months with a pectoral injury, Chacin quickly asserted himself as the team's top starting pitcher upon returning in late August. Despite being held to roughly 75-pitch outings, Chacin threw five innings or more in six of his last nine starts, providing some semblance of relief to an overworked Rockies bullpen. Chacin's issues with walks and a regression in his K/9 rate for the third straight season remain areas of concern, but when completely healthy, Chacin has proven he can generate groundballs with high frequency. In noting that trait, along with a strong late-season performance reminiscent of his quality 2010 and 2011 campaigns, Chacin appears best poised among the team's holdovers to claim a rotation spot coming out of spring training.

2012

While Chacin's second season with the Rockies might appear to be a step back, there were signs of growth in his results as well. Chacin's swinging-strike percentage tumbled from 10.8 percent in 2010 to 8.2 last season and the result was a significant regression in his strikeout rate from 9.04 K/9IP to 6.96. Around that, he was able to increase his groundball rate nearly 10 percent (56.3), which bodes very well for his chances of maintaining success at Coors Field. For the second straight season, Chacin posted a walk rate (4.04 BB/9IP) higher than anything he delivered in the minors and at age 24, there's reason to think he still might be able to cut back on the free passes. Coors is a difficult place to learn on the job, but the skills he showed in 2010 and the first half of 2011 make him a nice high-upside investment on draft day.

2011

Chacin started 2010 at Triple-A Colorado Springs, before a Jorge De La Rosa injury paved the way for him to join the Rockies' rotation. Once there, he pitched well with a 3.28 ERA and 9-11 record. He struck out more than a batter per inning, but also carried a 4.0 BB/9IP walk rate with him. Should he address those control issues, the sky is the limit for Chacin. For now his nice groundball rate (46.6 percent) and dominance will serve him well as he continues to develop and pitch in Coors Field.

2010

The way Chacin cruised through the minor leagues, there was plenty of reason to believe he could begin the year with the Rockies. Instead, he started the season in the minors, and after appearing in the Futures Game, eventually progressed to the big leagues where he achieved unspectacular results to the tune of a 4.91 ERA. He walked nearly as many as he struck out, and although he showed flashes of complete dominance using his fastball, for the most part he looked overmatched. Look for Chacin to spend at least another half season in the minors before being considered for a roster spot. Once he does surface, keep him in mind as a deep sleeper as a groundball pitcher with strikeout stuff, a skill set that can actually survive at Coors Field.

2009

Chacin cruised through two levels of A-ball last season with a five-pitch arsenal in which everything moves and stays down. In addition to missing bats, Chacin's ability to induce tons of groundballs (2.83 G/F ratio) will play well even at Coors Field. He gets points for his maturity and presence as well. He's a keeper-league find, not someone to target for this season, but he should in line for a rotation spot in 2010.
