Chacin (6-8) tossed seven scoreless innings Sunday, scattering four hits and a walk while striking out seven in a win over the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

It's a nice way to finish the regular season, but Chacin still posted a 4.81 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 119:55 K:BB in 144 innings divided between the Angels and Braves this year. He'll head into 2017 looking to compete for a rotation job, but he might have to settle for a long relief or swing man role.

Chacin will start Sunday against the Astros, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jered Weaver (back) ruled himself out for the start, saying he didn't feel capable of pitching in the season finale. Chacin will fill in and look the end the season and a high note before becoming a free agent again this winter. He's given up just two earned runs in his last three starts (17 innings).

Chacin allowed two runs (none earned) on four hits with five strikeouts and three walks over six innings in a no-decision Saturday against Houston.

EDGE Analysis

He has yielded just two earned runs over his last three outings, but Chacin hasn't been able to win any of those games. Fortunately for Los Angeles, the Angels did come back to beat the Astros 10-4. Chacin has 13 strikeouts in his last 16.2 innings, but he did walk three Saturday. As a starter this season, he is 4-8 with a 5.40 ERA and 1.55 WHIP in 108.1 frames.

Chacin allowed one run on six hits and a walk with three strikeouts over five innings in a no-decision Monday against Texas.

EDGE Analysis

Chacin has pitched well in consecutive no-decisions against division rivals, as he allowed just one run over six innings his last time out against the Rangers. He has eight strikeouts against just one walk over those two starts. Chacin threw just 91 pitches as he hasn't been stretched out for the rotation for much of the season; unfortunately, that combined with the Angels' poor lineup will limit his chances for wins in his final starts of the season.

Chacin sparkled in Wednesday's start against the Mariners, allowing only three hits and one run (a solo homer) with five strikeouts and no walks over six innings.

EDGE Analysis

Well, this was surprising, considering Chacin came into this outing with an atrocious 5.69 ERA in 25 games (13 starts) as an Angel. It's hard to count on him to keep it up, but for what it's worth, Chacin's put together a few solid outings lately. Still, it's hard to pick him up in anything but deep AL-only formats.

Chacin will start Wednesday's game against the Mariners, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

He will take the place of Tyler Skaggs, who was scratched with forearm tightness. Skaggs will receive an MRI on Wednesday, and it would not be surprising if he was shut down for the rest of the season, as the Angels will undoubtedly be cautious with him, as he had Tommy John surgery two years ago. This means Chacin could finish the year out in the rotation. He has a 6.21 ERA in 91.1 innings as a starter this season, and has not logged more than four innings since Aug. 21, so he should be avoided in the majority of formats Wednesday.

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%).
