Chacin got the start against Team Dominican Republic in Thursday's World Baseball Classic. He pitched well, holding the powerhouse lineup to one run on three hits while striking out three over 4.1 innings.

EDGE Analysis

The only damage done to the veteran hurler was a solo home run off the bat of Gregory Polanco. Strong WBC results (2.08 ERA) are a good sign for Chacin, but they are unlikely to raise his fantasy value past a deep league starter. He is already a lock for the Padres' starting rotation, and will attempt to repeat the success he found in the second half of the 2016 season when he featured a 3.50 ERA.

Chacin is a possibility to make the Padres' Opening Day start, according to manager Andy Green, A.J. Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Of course, Green also added Jered Weaver, Clayton Richard and "others" to the mix, per Cassavell, so this situation remains messy. No Padres starting pitcher stands out as a must-draft option in mixed leagues, though NL-only drafters can weigh in on a piece of the rotation with few strings attached.

Chacin saw his first Cactus League action Tuesday, giving up one run on two hits and a walk while striking out two over two innings in a win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Chacin was brought in to start for the Padres after making 34 appearances between the Braves and the Angels last season. The end results weren't pretty (4.81 ERA and 1.44 WHIP), but there were a few underlying numbers that could hint towards a bit of a career renaissance. His 4.00 FIP, .326 BABIP and 67.5% strand rate all indicate that the veteran pitcher was experiencing some bad luck on the mound last season. His fastball velocity also ticked back up to 90.8 MPH, the best it has been since 2011 when he had a 3.62 ERA with the Rockies. Couple that with the fact that he will be starting half of his games in Petco Park, and you have the recipe for a potential sleeper in deeper and NL-only formats.

Manager Andy Green revealed Tuesday that Chacin was signed in the offseason to work as a starter for the Padres, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 29-year-old was a non-roster invitee to the Braves camp last year, but pitched well enough to earn a roster spot. He spent time with the Angels and Braves in 2016, posting a 4.81 ERA across 144.0 innings (22 starts, 12 relief appearances). He is one of two pitchers locked into the Padres' weak starting rotation for 2017 so far.

Chacin agreed to a one-year, major league contract with the Padres on Saturday, pending a physical, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

As a non-roster invitee to Braves camp, Chacin pitched well enough last spring to earn a spot in the rotation. He was flipped to the Angels in May, making 34 total appearances (22 starts) between the two stops. While the final results don't look good, his FIP was 4.01 (right in line with his career mark of 4.04) and the combination of groundballs and a spacious home park could allow Chacin to prosper in San Diego.

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.
