The Rockies announced earlier this evening that Jhoulys Chacin was placed on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation. The 24-year-old was demoted to Triple-A Colorado Springs last week after posting an ugly 7.30 ERA over his first five starts, but today’s move rescinds the option.
This news doesn’t come as a big surprise, as Rockies’ general manager Dan O’Dowd told Troy Renck of the Denver Post earlier today that Chacin wasn’t prepared to pitch at the Triple-A level.
“We’re still working through his issues and trying to get our arms around everything before we move forward,” general manager Dan O’Dowd said today.
“Health, mind, delivery, the whole package. It makes no sense for him to go out and pitch until we get him in a better place.”
