LOS ANGELES -- Rockies right-hander Jhoulys Chacin has been limited to strengthening exercises since it was determined that he is suffering from shoulder inflammation. The injury is believed to have played a factor in his 0-3 start and 7.30 ERA through five outings.
"They're trying to get him to the point that he feels, and we feel, the strength is to the point where he is able to get out there and pitch again," Rockies manager Jim Tracy said. "That's what we're anxious to see happening.
"I haven't heard of any throwing, just a lot of strengthening exercises. Once we get to that point, then the throwing exercises will begin."
