Chacin to throw simulated game Tuesday
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Rockies right-hander Jhoulys Chacin, who struggled in his lone appearance in the World Baseball Classic, will throw a simulated game on Tuesday at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick as he and the other players who represented Venezuela -- outfielder Carlos Gonzalez and catcher Ramon Hernandez -- return to the club.
Chacin worked 3 1/3 innings and gave up five hits and four runs in Venezuela's first-game loss to the Dominican Republic. Chacin left the game with two runners on base, and they scored.
Chacin is 0-1 with a 6.23 ERA in two Cactus League appearances.
