SP - ATL - DFA
Jhoulys Chacin was DFA'd Saturday by the Braves.
Chacin allowed four runs in five innings of work for the team and that was not good enough to stay rostered. He now hits the waiver wire.
Jhoulys Chacin, a late pickup for the Braves, secured the win after 3 2/3 innings pitched coming in relief of Sean Newcomb. Chacin allowed one hit and one walk while fanning one batter.
Chacin was a head-scratcher of a pickup but it's already paying off. Chacin will work in relief as long as Kyle Wright is holding down the 5th spot in the rotation or if there is another injury, in which case he'll see some starts.
Jhoulys Chacin signed a one-year deal with Atlanta Tuesday after being released by the Twins on Saturday.
Chacin will likely serve in a relief capacity but also offers the ability to cover a spot start here and there for the Braves.
The Twins released RHP Jhoulys Chacin on Sunday.
Chacin requested his release from the Twins on Sunday. He reportedly was not going to make the 30-man roster. Chacin will look to latch onto another team as pitching depth.
Jhoulys Chacin allowed four runs on five hits in just 2 2/3 innings to take the loss Saturday against Baltimore. He walked one batter while striking out three.
Chacin did not look good on Saturday giving up three home runs. The veteran pitcher finishes the season with a 3-12 record between the Brewers and the Red Sox with a 6.01 ERA. Chacin will have a hard time finding a starting pitcher job in the offseason.
