The Padres are showing interest in retaining free agents Jhoulys Chacin and Craig Stammen and could be open to two-year deals.
The Padres already gave free-agent-to-be Clayton Richard a two-year deal in September. They would expect a bit of a discount on a multiyear deal for Jhoulys and/or Stammen, but that might work out if either veteran is looking for some stability. Chacin, coming off his best season since 2013, has pitched for four teams in three years since getting let go by the Rockies. There should be a fair amount of interest in him as a fourth or fifth starter, but most suitors will only want to go one year. Nov 16 - 4:44 PM

Jhoulys Chacin held the Giants to one run through six innings but did not factor into the decision on Saturday.

He surrendered a run in the first inning and then hung zeroes the rest of the way. He allowed five hits -- all singles -- and two walks while notching six strikeouts. This was a rare good start on the road for Chacin, who had a 6.93 away ERA compared to a 1.79 home ERA for the season prior to today's game. He ends the 2017 campaign with a 13-10 record and 3.89 ERA in 32 starts.
Sep 30 - 7:47 PM

Jhoulys Chacin allowed just one hit and three walks with six strikeouts over six scoreless innings in a win against the Rockies on Saturday.

Chacin has won back-to-back decisions, and his 13 victories is just one short of the mark he set in 2013 as a member of the Colorado Rockies, and his 3.98 ERA is his best output since he posted a 3.38 ERA in 2015 as a member of the Arizona Diamondbacks. His final start of the 2017 season will come Saturday in San Francisco.
Sep 24 - 1:16 AM

Jhoulys Chacin was ineffective in Sunday's no-decision against the Rockies, allowing three runs on five hits across 4 1/3 innings.

The right-hander struck out four and walked two in the ballgame. All of the damage came in the fourth inning, the major blow being a two-run double by Trevor Story. He'll bring a 4.12 ERA and 1.30 WHIP into his penultimate start of the season on Saturday against the Rockies.
Sep 17 - 8:47 PM

Jhoulys Chacin allowed four earned runs, seven hits and two walks with five strikeouts over five innings in a no-decision Saturday in Arizona.

Chacin threw just 59 of his 100 pitches for strikes in the mediocre effort. He has just one victory over his past four decisions spanning seven starts. Despite the lack of wins, he has been pitching rather consistently, as his ERA has risen from 3.99 to just 4.06 during the stretch.
Sep 10 - 3:08 AM

Jhoulys Chacin delivered an impressive performance in Sunday's win over the Dodgers, allowin three runs (two earned) on five hits over seven strong innings.

Chacin punched out eight on the afternoon and didn't walk a batter. The bulk of the damage against him came in the fourth inning where Chris Taylor swatted a solo home run and Justin Turner tacked on an RBI double. Now 12-10 on the season, Chacin sports a 3.96 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 132/63 K/BB ratio across 159 innings. He'll look to extend his winning streak on Friday against the Diamondbacks in Arizona.
Sep 3 - 8:23 PM

Jhoulys Chacin gave up five runs -- four earned -- in 4 2/3 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Cardinals.

Chacin remains a candidate to be traded, but he didn't help the cause tonight. Well, unless the cause is to remain in sunny San Diego for the rest of the year. He's 11-9 with a 4.10 ERA.
Aug 23 - 11:59 PM

Jhoulys Chacin was unable to find the plate in Thursday's loss to the Nationals, walking four while allowing one run over five innings.

Chacin surrendered just three hits and one run -- on an Adam Lind sacrifice fly in the third inning -- but control issues forced him to an early exit after five innings. He threw just 63 of his 104 pitches for strikes. Chacin has walked four batters in each of his last two starts and has handed out at least three free passes in six of his last 10 outings. He will carry a 3.98 ERA and 1.28 WHIP into a road showdown with the Cardinals next time he toes the rubber.
Aug 18 - 1:17 AM

Jhoulys Chacin allowed one earned run, four hits and four walks with three strikeouts over five innings in a no-decision Saturday on the road against the Dodgers.

Chacin's five innings tied his lowest over his past 13 starts dating back to May 28. Part of the problem has been walks lately, as he has issued 22 walks over his past 46 2/3 innings. He also hasn't been very good on the road, going 4-6 with a 6.90 ERA over 12 road outings. However, Chacin is 7-2 with a 1.86 ERA through 12 outings at home. He'll be back at Petco Park on Thursday against the Nationals.
Aug 13 - 4:14 AM

Jhoulys Chacin gave up five earned runs over six innings Monday in a loss to the Reds.

His struggles on the road continue. Chacin walked three batters and surrendered five hits -- including two home runs -- as he fell to 4-6 with a 7.36 ERA in 11 starts away from Petco Park. He is 7-2 with a 1.86 ERA in 12 starts at home. Up next for the 29-year-old right-hander is a daunting duel at Dodger Stadium.
Aug 7 - 10:32 PM

Jhoulys Chacin allowed just three hits and two walks while striking out three batters over seven scoreless innings in a win Tuesday against the Twins.

Chacin has won five straight decisions and he hasn't lost in six starts dating back to June 27. He is 7-3 with a 2.49 ERA over his past 11 starts, lowering his ERA from 5.77 to 3.99 during the stretch. His next scheduled start is set for Monday in Cincinnati. He is 4-5 with a 7.35 ERA over 10 road outings as opposed to 7-2 with a 1.86 ERA in 12 starts at Petco Park.
Aug 2 - 3:29 AM

Jhoulys Chacin earned his 10th victory of the season on Wednesday, holding the Mets to two runs on four hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Chacin punched out five on the night while walking three. It was a terrific effort for Chacin just a day after he was scratched from his scheduled start due to back tightness. He has been outstanding at home this season and a nightmare when pitching away from PetCo Park. Luckily for fantasy owners he'll be home again next time out when he does battle against the Twins on Tuesday.
Jul 27 - 1:19 AM

Jhoulys Chacin has been scratched from his scheduled start Tuesday against the Mets due to back tightness.

Jul 25 - 6:30 PM

Jhoulys Chacin surrendered two runs on four hits over six innings in Thursday's win over the Giants.

Chacin struck out four and walked one in the outing. Outside of RBI singles allowed to Denard Span and Eduardo Nunez in the sixth inning, he kept the scoreboard clean. Chacin will bring a 4.26 ERA and 1.29 WHIP into a home start against the Mets next time out.
Jul 21 - 1:25 AM

Jhoulys Chacin allowed three earned runs while scattering six hits over six innings in a no-decision against the Giants on Saturday.

Chacin walked four and struck out four in the 102-pitch quality start. He hasn't lost in three starts in the month of July, posting a 2-0 record and 2.08 ERA while striking out 16 batters over 17 1/3 innings. If he can cut down on his walks he could be an effective option in mixed formats, but for now he is best used in NL-only play.
