The Angels announced Sunday that Chacin has been dropped from the starting rotation and will move to the bullpen, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Chacin was blasted for five runs on 12 hits and two walks over only 4.2 innings in his start Friday against the Red Sox, mirroring a broader trend of terrible outings. Since tossing a 10-strikeout complete game against the Tigers on May 30, Chacin has covered only 26.2 innings in his last six starts, going 1-4 with an 8.78 ERA and 2.36 WHIP. Nick Tropeano is set to assume Chacin's spot in the rotation and should be in line for a two-start week.

Chacin gave up 12 hits, five earned runs, and two walks over 4.2 innings in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Red Sox. He struck out four.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander really unraveled in the fifth, an inning in which he'd entered with a 2-0 deficit. Chacin actually retired Dustin Pedroia and Xander Bogaerts before falling victim to a 348-foot homer by David Ortiz. That seemed to rattle him, as he proceeded to give up a single to Jackie Bradley, Jr, an RBI double to Brock Holt, and an RBI single to Christian Vazquez following an intentional walk of Travis Shaw. The 28-year-old has been hit hard for the last month, as he's surrendered 44 hits and 27 runs (26 earned) over 26.2 innings in his last six starts. Now sporting a bloated 5.87 ERA and 1.58 WHIP, Chacin will try to stop the bleeding next Wednesday versus the Rays.

Chacin (2-4) allowed four runs on six hits over 4.2 innings in a loss against the Athletics on Saturday. He didn't strike out a single batter and walked four.

EDGE Analysis

Things haven't gotten any better for Chacin since being traded from Atlanta to Los Angeles. He has allowed at least four runs in each of his last four appearances, and since pitching a complete game on May 30, Chacin has yielded 21 runs over 22 innings (8.59 ERA) in the last five outings. He is now 3-6 with a 5.64 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 54 strikeouts in75 innings with both the Braves and Angels this season. His next start will be Friday against the Red Sox.

Chacin continued his slide down the mountain Monday against the Astros, allowing six runs (five earned) in two-plus innings.

EDGE Analysis

Chacin simply couldn't find the plate Monday, as he walked five of the 17 batters he faced, and hit Marwin Gonzalez with a pitch in the first inning. The 28-year-old has had pinpoint control for most of the season, but has surrendered 13 free passes over 17.1 innings in June. Chacin will find relief in his ground ball rate on occasion, but doesn't strike out enough hitters to get away with that many base runners. He will take a bloated 5.56 ERA into his next start Saturday against the A's.

Chacin allowed four runs through five innings Tuesday, but was able to pick up his second win of the season against the Twins. He struck out two and issued a walk in the contest.

EDGE Analysis

Chacin has the command and ground ball rate to string together some quality outings in his spacious home ball park, but has struck out more than four batters in just four of his 12 outings this season. Owners were likely hopeful that Chacin had turned a corner following his complete game against the Tigers last month, but the 28-year-old hasn't pitched more than 5.1 innings in any of his three starts since then, and has allowed 12 runs over that span. He will take a 5.00 ERA into his next start against the A's on Saturday.

Chacin (2-4) pitched 5.1 innings, giving up five runs, seven hits and three walks while striking out three in Thursday's loss to the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

After a shaky first couple of innings, Chacin appeared to be settling down nicely when he retired six straight Bombers - five by means of groundball outs - in the third and fourth frames. However, his start turned disastrous after the Yankees tallied five runs on four hits and two walks in the bottom of the fifth. Manager Mike Scioscia allowed Chacin to work through the struggles by sending him out there for the sixth, but a Chase Headley doubled quickly ended that. He'll look to redeem himself when he takes the hill on Tuesday against the Twins.

Chacin didn't factor into the decision against the Pirates on Saturday, giving up six hits, three earned runs and four walks over five innings. He also struck out a batter.

EDGE Analysis

The 28-year-old took the ball a day early in place of the ailing Nick Tropeano (illness), but was on his regular amount of rest. He couldn't duplicate the success he'd encountered in his last start, a complete-game gem against the Tigers on May 30. Chacin threw 52 of his 86 pitches for strikes, while notching first-pitch strikes on 17 of 25 batters he faced. The veteran right-hander will try to get back on the winning side of the ledger in his next start, which comes next Thursday against the Yankees.

Chacin will move up a day in the rotation to start Saturday against the Pirates in place of Nick Tropeano (illness), Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

With an off-day in the schedule Thursday, Chacin can start Saturday's game on regular rest. Tropeano's status beyond Saturday is unclear, as he may need a DL stint, but the Angels can slide him back a few days without making a roster move if he's healthy enough to start by Tuesday.

Chacin (1-1) struck out 10 and earned his first win with the Angels behind a complete game with just one run allowed on four hits Monday against the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Chacin only lost the shutout on a sacrifice fly in the ninth inning as he was utterly dominant. He drew 17 swinging strikes and nine groundouts, didn't allow a hit until the sixth inning, and his only walk was unintentional. Chacin's Angels ERA is down to 3.42 and he now has three quality starts in his four appearances with his new club.

Chacin (0-1) allowed three runs on five hits and two walks with four strikeouts over six innings in a loss Tuesday against Texas.

EDGE Analysis

Although Chacin has an unsightly 4.67 ERA in his three starts for the Angels, he has two quality starts in his three outings for the new club. Chacin's only big mistake was a two-run home run by Nomar Mazara. However, his control was shaky all night (11 first-pitch strikes to 25 hitters), and he was in too many hitter's counts to expect to get away with all of them.
