Rockies reinstate Chacin from disabled list


DENVER - The Colorado Rockies announced today that the club has reinstated right-handed pitcher Jhoulys Chacin from the 15-day disabled list. Additionally, the Rockies have placed catcher Wilin Rosario on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to May 3) with a viral infection. Chacin (#45) will start today's game vs. the New York Mets at Coors Field (2:10 p.m. MDT).

Chacin, 26, began the season on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder strain, and will be making his season debut today. The right-hander made four rehab starts, two at High-A Modesto and two at Triple-A Colorado Springs. In the four outings of his rehab, Chacin went 1-3 with a 5.00 ERA (18.0 ip, 10 er), 8 walks and 12 strikeouts. The Maracaibo, Venezuela native is a veteran of five Major League seasons (2009-13), all with Colorado. In his Big League career, Chacin is 37-41 with a 3.61 ERA (608.2 ip, 244 er), 252 walks and 472 strikeouts in 113 games/98 starts. Chacin's 3.61 career ERA is the lowest in franchise history among players with at least 50 starts as a Rockie. He was originally signed by Colorado as a non-drafted free agent on September 27, 2004.

Rosario, 25, made his third straight Opening Day roster and has played in 24 games this year, while hitting .239 (21-for-88) with 5 doubles, 3 home runs, 15 RBI and 8 runs. Since 2012, he has 49 home runs as a catcher which is tied with Baltimore's Matt Wieters for most in the Majors. The Bonao, Dominican Republic native has played in 278 Major League games and has hit .274 (270-for-987) with 49 doubles, 2 triples, 55 home runs, 173 RBI and 144 runs.

The Rockies currently have a full 40-man roster.
