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.
Jul 16 - 2:27 AM

Jhoulys Chacin surrendered just one run through 6 1/3 innings as his club held on for a 2-1 win over the Phillies.

He struck out six batters and walked two while holding his opponents to three base hits. He was taken deep by Maikel Franco for a solo shot in the fifth inning. Chacin improves to 8-7 with a 4.32 ERA after 18 starts.
Jul 8 - 7:39 PM

Jhoulys Chacin allowed just three singles, a double and three hits over five scoreless innings while striking out six batters in a win against the Dodgers on Sunday.

Chacin evened his record at 7-7 while lowering his ERA to 4.52. He racked up a season-high 107 pitches, although he faced just 24 batters, lowest amount since May 28. Still, he has really turned things around since that May 28 start, posting a 3-3 record and 2.84 ERA over his past six outings to chop his ERA down from 5.77.
Jul 2 - 8:45 PM

Jhoulys Chacin allowed two earned runs, seven hits and a walk across seven innings in a loss against the Braves on Tuesday.

Chacin struck out four batters in the 99-pitch quality start, lowering his ERA for the fifth consecutive outing. After a shaky first couple of months Chacin is hitting his stride in June, posting five quality starts in five outings with an impressive 3.00 ERA and 27 strikeouts to just 10 walks over 33 innings.
Jun 28 - 2:06 AM

Jhoulys Chacin pitched well in Tuesday's loss to the Cubs, allowing two runs on five hits across six strong innings.

The right-hander punched out six on the evening while walking three. He surrendered a leadoff home run to Anthony Rizzo then kept the Cubs off the board save for an Addison Russell single in the fourth inning. The 29-year-old will carry a 4.95 ERA and 72/29 K/BB ratio into Tuesday's matchup against the Braves.
Jun 20 - 11:14 PM

Jhoulys Chacin held the Reds to two runs over seven innings Wednesday for his sixth win.

Chacin gave up a pair of solo homers but was otherwise sharp, yielding just five total hits and one walk while striking out four. The right-hander now boasts a 1.72 ERA in seven starts at Petco Park this season, and a 10.27 ERA in seven starts on the road. He'll bring a 5.10 overall ERA into his next scheduled outing against the defending World Series champions.
Jun 14 - 6:09 PM

Jhoulys Chacin allowed two runs and three hits over seven innings in a win over the Royals on Friday.

Chacin struck out six on the mound and had an RBI double at the plate. His ERA stands at 5.35, but that's because his poor outings have been awful; 23 of the 42 earned runs he's allowed have come in three of his 13 starts. He's allowed three earned runs or fewer in each of the other 10.
Jun 10 - 2:39 AM

Jhoulys Chacin allowed four runs -- three earned -- over six innings in a loss to the Rockies on Saturday.

Chacin gave up six hits and walked three, striking out seven. It was actually a step forward for the right-hander, who had failed to make it out of the fifth inning in his prior two starts. He's actually struck out 56 over 63 2/3 innings, but that comes with a 5.65 ERA and 1.46 WHIP. An interleague date with the Royals is on tap for Friday.
Jun 3 - 11:23 PM

Jhoulys Chacin struggled in a no-decision against the Nationals on Sunday, allowing three runs on eight hits over 4 1/3 innings.

On the positive side, Chacin did rack up six strikeouts on the afternoon while walking two. He has been extremely inconsistent this season, especially away from home, and now sports a troublesome 5.77 ERA and 1.46 WHIP on the season. He'll try to get back in the win column on Saturday against the Rockies.
May 28 - 8:59 PM

Jhoulys Chacin lasted just two-thirds of an inning and gave up seven runs Tuesday against the Mets.

Chacin gave up hits to eight of the 10 batters he faced. He had a 3.28 ERA in his previous eight starts, so he's not going anywhere. Still, this makes three times this season in which he's given up at least seven runs.
May 23 - 10:41 PM

Jhoulys Chacin pitched seven innings of one-run ball and struck out eight Wednesday against the Brewers.

Chacin gave up nine runs on Opening Day. Since then, he's sporting a 3.28 ERA in eight starts. He has no mixed-league value while pitching for the Padres, but a contender might want him if he keeps this up.
May 18 - 1:45 AM

Jhoulys Chacin notched the win after giving up three runs over 6 1/3 innings on Friday against the White Sox.

Leury Garcia did all of the damage against him, slugging a two-run homer in the third inning and a solo blast in the seventh. Chacin struck out five and walked one in the victory and now stands at 4-3 with a 5.12 ERA through eight starts. While he notched the win at Guaranteed Rate Field on Friday, Chacin is mostly worth using as a matchup play at home in deeper fantasy leagues.
May 13 - 12:52 AM

Jhoulys Chacin allowed three runs, five hits and two walks while recording six strikeouts over five innings in a win Saturday at San Francisco.

The Padres provided more than enough offense for Chacin, who threw just 53 of his 87 pitches for strikes. Most nights Chacin will not receive this kind of support and the results from the pitcher will be rather subpar from a fantasy perspective. The good news is he did not show any ill effects from the left foot injury which he suffered last time out against the Diamondbacks.
Apr 30 - 1:27 AM

X-rays turned up negative on Jhoulys Chacin's left foot.

Chacin underwent tests after fouling a ball off the foot on Monday. He's expected to take his next turn in the Padres' rotation and will try to bounce back from Monday night's seven-run drubbing versus the Diamondbacks.
