His only loss came at the hands of the Yankees, and he wasn't exactly shelled either. All I really know about him is he's under 6' and he's a lefty. What does he look like out there on the mound, and what impresses you about him?
i went to that yankee game in which he took the loss...and i can tell you he didn't pitch that bad on that game...he was doing pretty well...better than mussina IMO...well....who isn't pitching better than the moose these days...anyway, the jays couldn't buy a hit with men on scoring position that night...and that was the main reason why they didn't win the game and chacin took the loss.
last year in his major leage debut he pitched really well against the same yankees at yankee stadium...i think his line was something like 7IP and only one run given up.
his delivery is a little unusual and that might be a reason hitters aren't being very successful against him. he's def not a strikeout guy, but he seems to get the work done...his numbers in the minors last year are pretty impressive. people were worried about picking him up cuz he was gonna get rocked by TEX in arlington and he wasn't...then he was gonna face the yankees and that wasn't gonna be a good matchup...he took the loss, but pitched fairly well...then last night he bounced back nicely against TB.
there are a bunch on threads on chacin from the last two weeks if you wanna read more.
