Jhoulys Chacin Injury Update: Rockies P Will Make One More Rehab Start, Join Team In New York

Colorado Rockies right-hand pitcher Jhoulys Chacin, out since May 1 with a pectoral injury, will make one more rehab start with Triple-A Colorado Springs next Thursday, according to the team. If all goes well, Chacin will jump back into the team's rotation in New York next week.

Chacin had just five starts before his injury sidelined him, although he was extremely shaky in in his last two starts before allowing seven runs in just 4.2 innings on May 1. Chacin was placed on injured reserve with a shoulder injury, before being diagnosed with a injury to his pectoral muscle due to "nerve entrapment."

The Rockies could certainly use all the help they could get, currently sitting last in the division and fighting with the Houston Astros for the title of worst team in baseball.
