Chacin (3-8) took the loss against the Padres on Monday, giving up two earned runs on six hits over 4.2 innings, striking out seven and walking three in the Brewers' 2-0 defeat. Making his first start after being activated from the 10-day injured list with a back injury, Chacin only gave up two earned, but he struggled with his efficiency as he was chased from the contest without making it out of the fifth inning after tossing 103 pitches. The 31-year-old right-hander will carry a 5.60 ERA and a 1.52 WHIP over 62.2 innings into his next start, which will see him take on the Reds in a Saturday home matchup.
Chacin (back) was activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Monday against the Padres. Chacin missed a pair of turns through the rotation after landing on the injured list with a lower-back strain in early June. The Brewers will be looking for him to improve upon his 5.74 ERA and 1.48 WHIP in his return to the rotation. Reliever Jacob Barnes was optioned to Triple-A San Antonio in a corresponding move.
Chacin (back) will return from the injured list to start Monday against the Padres, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Chacin got through a 45-to-50 pitch bullpen with no issues Tuesday, clearing the way for him to rejoin the big-league rotation for Monday's series opener in San Diego. The right-hander will look to turn things around upon his return, as he struggled to a 5.74 ERA and 1.48 WHIP in 12 starts (58 innings) before landing on the shelf. Freddy Peralta, who was previously scheduled to start Monday, could be shifted back to the bullpen to accommodate Chacin's return.
Chacin (back) threw a 45-to-50 pitch bullpen session Tuesday, and manager Craig Counsell hopes he will be able to return for the Brewers' upcoming series with the Padres, which begins June 17, Sophia Minnaert of FSN Wisconsin reports. It was reported over the weekend that Chacin was on track to return during the Brewers' current road trip, and the latest report clears up his potential return date even further. It remains to be seen if Chacin will make a rehab appearance before coming off the injured list, but regardless, he could be back on the mound for the Brewers as soon as next week.
Chacin (back) is expected to be ready to return sometime during the Brewers' upcoming road trip, which begins June 11, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. It's a three-city trip for the Brewers (Houston, San Francisco, San Diego) lasting from June 11-19, so it's still an imprecise timeline, but we now have a general idea of when Chacin will be back. The right-hander has struggled this season to the tune of a 5.74 ERA and 1.48 WHIP, but he had a 3.50 ERA and 1.16 WHIP last year. With that in mind, the team will likely give him a fairly long leash to figure it out.
