FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: ROCKIES SP JHOULYS CHACIN (SHOULDER) SHUT DOWN FOR ONE WEEK

                                                       

Colorado Rockies SP Jhoulys Chacin will be shut down for a week due to the shoulder pain he felt after a throwing session on Monday.  An MRI revealed a strain and some inflammation and the Rockies will wait for that to calm down before he gets back into action.  While his status for Opening Day is not yet in question, any further complications will get him in trouble there.

Analysis:  Chacin pitched very well for the Rockies last season and was a nice value get in non-innings capped leagues.  However only a week down with any kid of shoulder issue is short and so I expect Chacin to be out longer and thus have Opening Day in jeopardy.  He remains an SP 4 in non-innings capped leagues since he doesn't strike many guys out.  The margin for error with guys like this are very short as it is and since Chacin pitched in Colorado, doesn't strike guys out, and now is hurt makes him one to avoid.
