The Rockies on Monday placed struggling right-hander Jhoulys Chacin on the disabled list with inflammation in his right shoulder. The move was made retroactive to June 29.

This season, the 26-year-old Chacin has pitched to a 5.40 ERA and 1.50 K/BB ratio after 11 starts. This on the heels of a strong 2013 in which he logged an ERA+ of 127 in a career-high 197 1/3 innings. This marks the third time since 2012 that Chacin has hit the DL because of shoulder problems.

As the Denver Post notes, Chacin becomes the sixth starting pitcher presently on the DL for the spiraling Rockies.
