Braves | Jhoulys Chacin earns victory Thursday

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 19:46:08 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Jhoulys Chacin (1-1) allowed two runs on six hits over five innings in a victory over the Boston Red Sox Thursday, April 28, with two walks and four strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Chacin is a decent option for owners in NL-only fantasy leagues and is worth considering as a value play for daily contests, with 23 strikeouts through 22 innings over his first four starts. He is scheduled to make his next start against the New York Mets Tuesday, May 3.

Braves | Jhoulys Chacin looks to stay hot

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 21:34:09 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Jhoulys Chacin is scheduled to start Thursday, April 28, against the Boston Red Sox. He has allowed three earned runs or fewer in each of his past three starts.

Fantasy Tip: Chacin has emerged as a solid NL-only fantasy league option, but mixed leaguers still need to see a little bit more before taking a chance on him. Chacin has also served as a nice DFS value to this point.

Braves | Jhoulys Chacin tremendous in debut

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 22:58:43 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Jhoulys Chacin made his season debut Tuesday, April 12, against the Washington Nationals. He scattered five hits with no walks and eight strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision.

Fantasy Tip: Chacin threw 52 of his 69 pitches for strikes. Recalled from Class AAA Gwinnett earlier in the day, Chacin could stick around in Atlanta if he continues to throw this effectively, but fantasy owners will want to see more before investing in him.

Braves | Jhoulys Chacin to debut Tuesday

Thu, 07 Apr 2016 10:06:36 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Jhoulys Chacin, the team's fifth starter, will be called up from Class AAA to make his season debut against the Washington Nationals Tuesday, April 12.

Fantasy Tip: Chacin has mediocre command and doesn't fan many hitters, so his fantasy upside is limited to mainly deep NL-only leagues. He won't be attractive as a deep sleeper in daily contests next week against the Nats, either.

Braves | Mike Foltynewicz optioned

Wed, 30 Mar 2016 10:42:51 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz was optioned to Class AAA Gwinnett Wednesday, March 30, leaving SPs Jhoulys Chacin, Williams Perez and John Gant fighting for the final two starting rotation spots. Foltynewicz had an 8.31 ERA this spring in three outings, and he had only gone 3 2/3 innings in his longest start. He was behind in camp due to a blood clot issue in his arm that required a portion of his rib to be removed.

Fantasy Tip: Folty should be back in Atlanta's rotation by late April or early May when he's ready. In the meantime, there's not much to like for fantasy owners out of Chacin, Perez or Gant. Mixed leaguers should stay away.

Braves | Jhoulys Chacin a rotation favorite

Wed, 16 Mar 2016 14:29:34 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Jhoulys Chacin is a favorite for one of the two open starting rotation spots, and his rough outing in spring action (eight hits, three runs and a walk in three innings) is unlikely to jeopardize that. Chacin had given up three hits and a walk in five scoreless innings in two starts before that.

Fantasy Tip: Chacin has displayed subpar command and dominance in his major league career, so the only real thing he has going for him is his ground-ball profile. His health grade hasn't been impressive either. There's some hope, but save him for NL-only leagues.

Braves | Jhoulys Chacin's shoulder is well

Mon, 14 Mar 2016 04:41:21 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Jhoulys Chacin has pitched well for the Braves in his spring outings without any discomfort or pain in his right shoulder.

Fantasy Tip: Chacin is listed as sixth on the team's starting depth chart, which means he may need one or two more strong outings to guarantee a spot. If he makes the rotation, consider him an end-of-draft pickup in NL and mixed leagues.

Braves | Atlanta's rotation competition

Mon, 29 Feb 2016 14:57:23 -0800

Atlanta Braves SP Julio Teheran is expected to make his third straight Opening Day start this year, followed by SPs Bud Norris and Matt Wisler. SPs Williams Perez and Manny Banuelos are the top candidates for the final two rotation spots, along with SPs Aaron Blair, Sean Newcomb, Tyrell Jenkins and Lucas Sims. SPs Kyle Kendrick or Jhoulys Chacin are veterans who might make more sense.

Fantasy Tip: The Braves are clearly in rebuilding mode, and this is one of the weaker starting rotations in the bigs to begin the year. Teheran has value as a sleeper in mixed leagues, but all the others have major questions and are better left to those in NL-only leagues.

Diamondbacks | Zack Godley starting Saturday

Fri, 25 Sep 2015 17:22:26 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Godley will start against the Saturday, Sept. 26, in place of SP Jhoulys Chacin.

Fantasy Tip: Godley ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is 5-1 with a 3.48 ERA through eight appearances (five starts) this season and has allowed three runs or fewer in all but one of those games. However, he makes a risky play in FantasyScore because he has struggled on the road, posting a 4.64 ERA over 21 1/3 innings.

Diamondbacks | Arizona going to six-man rotation

Tue, 08 Sep 2015 16:10:50 -0700

The Arizona Diamondbacks are likely going to a six-man starting rotation that will include SPs Jeremy Hellickson and Jhoulys Chacin after SP Zack Godley makes another start Wednesday, Sept. 9, according to manager Chip Hale.

Fantasy Tip: None of this trio of starters for Arizona should command much attention on FantasyScore regardless of the move to a six-man rotation. The news further limits their value in NL-only leagues for the remainder of the regular season.
