Chacin has been replaced as the starting pitcher for Saturday's game against the Tigers by Brett Oberholtzer, Pedro Moura of the LA Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Chacin tossed 5.2 scoreless innings and picked up the win in his last start Sunday, but the Angels apparently want to give Oberholtzer a shot to start, and Chacin will cede his spot to accommodate. Chacin figures to work in long relief for the Angels moving forward.

Chacin (3-6) pitched 5.2 scoreless innings on six hits and one walk while striking out four to earn the win Sunday against the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

After being blasted for 11 runs in six innings over his last two outings, he rebounded well, lowering his ERA to 5.61 on the campaign. Despite pitching in Colorado for six years, the 28-year-old currently has the worst ERA of his career. He'll make his next start Saturday against the Tigers.

Chacin allowed four runs on seven hits and two walks with two strikeouts over 4.2 innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Chacin's first two starts since taking over a rotation spot from Tim Lincecum have been brutal. He failed to make it out of the second inning last time and now has allowed 11 runs in just six innings over those two starts. His ERA across leagues is now up to 5.92, and a mediocre 80:43 K:BB in 103.1 innings doesn't give much room for optimism.

Chacin gave up seven earned runs in just 1.1 innings of work Thursday against the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

Chacin took the rotation spot of newly demoted Tim Lincecum and made his first start since July 1. And just like his previous 15 starts, it did not go well. The veteran's ERA now sits at 5.84 since joining the Angels -- a considerable difference from the 3.38 ERA he posted in 2015. The 28-year-old has had a difficult time keeping men off base (1.53 WHIP) and an even harder time keeping them on (64.4 LOB%).

Chacin will get the start Thursday against the Indians, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Chacin will take the start of the recently demoted Tim Lincecum, which marks the first time he will take the hill as the starter since July 1. The right-hander made the move to the bullpen after getting pounded by the Red Sox, and has been effective as a reliever, only allowing five runs during 17.2 innings of work. Chacin has not been named a regular starter as of yet, but if he provides a solid outing against Cleveland on Thursday, he could be in line to face the Mariners the following Tuesday.

Chacin has allowed five runs over 17.2 innings while totaling 20 strikeouts since moving to the bullpen.

EDGE Analysis

Chacin has had a difficult year, losing his starting job on July 3, after posting a 5.87 ERA over 15 starts. However, his performance has improved out of the pen where the Venezuelan owns a 2.55 ERA and a .537 opponent OPS compared to an .824 OPS as a starter.

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.
