Chacin Ready to Go Post-Blister

Jhoulys Chacin will take the mound tonight against the Padres.  This will be his first appearance after a shortened start last Thursday against the Cubs.  He was scheduled to go at least four innings, but was taken out after three scoreless innings with a blister on his index finger.  After the game Chacin brushed off any concern reporters had about his hand by saying,

I just cut my nail too short and I get a blister…It’s nothing to worry about. Everything is fine. I’m going to make my next start anyway.

He will be backed up by the following line-up:

Fowler, CF
Pacheco, 3B
Gonzalez, LF
Tulowitzki, SS
Giambi, 1B
Cuddyer, RF
Hernandez, C
Herrera, 2B
Chacin, P

Also slated to pitch:

Belisle
Betancourt
Escalona
Outman

How bad was Hernandez hurt by the HBP?

Chacin worries me. Frankly, I feel like most of what he says in interviews it complete BS. After living through Ubaldos 2011 this is sounding familiar. “I’m in shape. My injury is nothing. I’m ready.” Then he proceeds to stink it up.

Thanks for the update on Ramon. Fingers are definitely crossed. It would be nice to have a catcher that doesn’t need to be hidden down in the 8 hole.

Thats nice to see. I saw his stat line where he led the team in hits but only had 3 RBI. Nice to see him get a big hit with runners on base!

I just clicked on it and it came right up. Of course the chat is closed, but it looks like the feature will work for me. Great idea! I had a lot of fun chatting during games last year in ITR.

Chacin threw like 75 pitches over three innings. JT better have a pitcher in the pen that specializes in relieving Chacin in the 5th inning. Rogers?

Not Rogers! I hope he’s traded. I’ve been impressed with Roenicke – last year and this year. I agree with above – Chacin does NOT look good.

I hope Chacin is traded, not demoted. Get something while the getting is decent. O’Dowd loaths himself right now over Chacin. 2007 WS and you’re convinced you have “future stars” in Chacin and Stewart that you refuse to sacrifice and they both let you down. I’m convinced that Chacin and Stewart not just on the field but their attitudes. I’m convinced they would have been enough for Cliff Lee or Roy Halladay.

If you guys check our thread about pitchers and who makes the rotation/bullpen, you will see that I made the first ballsy call on my projected rotation. Chacin won’t be in the rotation. My latest: Guthrie, Pomeranz, Chatwood, Nicasio, and Moscoso /White /Moyer in the rotation. Betancourt, Brothers, Belisle, Roenicke, Reynolds, Outman, and Moyer/Rogers in the pen. I agree we should trade Chacin while he has maximum value.

“I was leaving all the pitches up,” Chacin said. “I was feeling a little bit stronger than I’m used to, and maybe that’s why I was leaving them up. I just have to work on it and throw on more of a downhill plane, and maybe I’ll get more outs and ground balls. It’s hard when you pitch like tonight. “That happens sometimes. You have to keep working, never put your head down. Go get them next time.” ^^^ Case… Read more »
