Jhoulys Chacin Injury: Rockies Considering DL For Demoted Pitcher, According To Reports

Colorado Rockies pitcher Jhoulys Chacin was removed from the team's 25-man roster last week and was expected to go to the Triple-A Colorado Springs Sky Sox, but that now appears to not be the case. Instead, Chacin might be placed on the disabled list, which would prompt another roster move to make that happen.

There are no indications yet as to what injury Chacin might be suffering from -- though Troy Renck mentions dead arm -- but this would help explain his poor season so far: 7.30 ERA in 24.1 innings, seven home runs allowed and 15 walks.
