Rockies | Jhoulys Chacin scratched
Colorado Rockies SP Jhoulys Chacin (back) was scratched from a split-squad game Friday, March 22, with back spasms he suffered a day earlier. The team said the move is purely precautionary, and he's still expected to start opening day April 1 against the Milwaukee Brewers. He has worked on his fastball-changeup combo this spring and has a 7.00 ERA in three spring starts.
Fantasy Tip: Most of his work last season was skewed due to mechanical problems and a shoulder ailment. But his lack of dominance is a concern, especially at Coors Field. It's smart to be skeptical of Chacin for now, limiting him to mainly NL-only rosters.
