Rockies | Jhoulys Chacin plays catch

Colorado Rockies SP Jhoulys Chacin (back, lat), who is dealing with a mild back strain and a strained lat muscle, played catch Tuesday, April 23, and thinks he can return to the rotation May 5, when he's eligible to come off the disabled list. Chacin wants to make his first rehab start April 30.

Fantasy Tip: Chacin's injury doesn't seem very serious, so he's worth stashing in a DL spot until he can return. Tyler Chatwood is expected to take his spot in the starting rotation until then, but he should be left to NL-only universes.
