Chacin allowed a single run on five hits and two walks while striking out six batters through six innings during Saturday's win over San Francisco. He didn't factor into the decision.

EDGE Analysis

It's been a career year for the 29-year-old righty, as Chacin wraps up 2017 with a 3.89 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 7.6 K/9. It's also worth noting that he was dominant at Petco Park with 1.79, 0.98 and 7.5 marks through 16 starts. However, those home numbers also highlight how much Chacin struggled on the road. Looking ahead to 2018, with more consistency away from Petco, Chacin could quickly become a strong fantasy asset. Additionally, the asking price is going to be reasonable in most circles.

Chacin (13-10) earned the win Saturday against the Rockies, throwing six shutout innings despite losing a no-hitter bid in his final frame. He walked three and allowed that hit, but he struck out six.

EDGE Analysis

Though the right-hander lowered his ERA to 3.98 with the brilliant home outing, Chacin has displayed up-and-down performance -- especially via his woeful 6.93 road ERA -- that has obscured some brilliant outings this year, making him a tough mixed-league starting option on the whole. Still, even in a road matchup to close out his 2017, he could help championship-chasing fantasy streamers next Saturday against the offensively challenged Giants at pitcher-friendly AT&T Park.

Chacin allowed three earned runs on five hits across 4.1 innings of a 4-3 win over the Rockies on Sunday. He also walked two and struck out four, failing to factor into the decision.

EDGE Analysis

Chacin departed while the Padres were behind 3-0, but a late-game comeback spared him from his 11th loss of the season. He's only won once since Aug. 2 and now owns a 4.12 ERA and 1.30 WHIP, which are right in line with his career marks of 3.96 and 1.34.

Chacin allowed four runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out five batters through five innings during Saturday's win over Arizona. He didn't factor into the decision.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran righty had settled into an impressive groove and entered Saturday's outing with a rock-solid 3.07 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 7.6 K.9 through his previous 18 outings. The Diamondbacks are a daunting matchup, so it's probably wise not to overreact to Saturday's so-so showing. Additionally, it's important to highlight how dominant he's been at home this season with a 1.91 ERA and 1.00 WHIP. Those are matchup-proof numbers. Unfortunately, Chacin lines up to make his next start on the road against the Rookies at hitter-friendly Coors Field.

Chacin (12-10) picked up the win after holding the Dodgers to three runs (two earned) on five hits while striking out eight over seven innings Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

The eight strikeouts tied a season-high for Chacin, and it was the first time in a quality start that he did not issue a walk. The 29-year-old struggled with his control in August, but that may have been a byproduct of some swelling in his pitching hand. While this was a promising start for the Friars' ace, fantasy owners should proceed with caution heading into his next start on the road against the red-hot Diamondbacks on Friday.

Chacin (hand) held the Giants to one run on two hits and four walks while striking out three over five frames Monday. He was the losing pitcher of record in a 3-0 loss.

EDGE Analysis

Chacin was able to make his scheduled start after experiencing swelling in his right hand in his last outing. Poor control plagued the veteran yet again as he walked three-plus batters for the seventh time over his last nine starts. The 29-year-old has been surprisingly effective as the Friars' ace this season (4.03 ERA over 152 innings), but his recent bout of wildness makes Chacin a risky play outside of favorable matchups at home.

Chacin (hand) will start Monday's game against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Chacin dealt with some swelling in his pitching hand after Wednesday's outing against the Cardinals, but apparently the issue resolved itself in time for him to make his normal scheduled start. The 29-year-old has registered 20 strikeouts over his 27.2 innings in August thus far.

Chacin is dealing with swelling in his pitching hand following Wednesday's start, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Chacin lasted just 4.2 innings on Wednesday -- allowing five runs on six hits and three walks -- but whether that had more to deal with his play or the hand injury is relatively unknown. He should be considered day-to-day for the time being, with his next projected start against the Giants on Monday firmly up in the air. Manager Andy Green will likely shed some light on the situation in the coming days.

Chacin (11-9) landed in the loss column after allowing five runs - four earned - on six hits and three walks while striking out three batters through 4.2 innings Wednesday against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Chacin had issues controlling the ball Wednesday, as he hit four batters in addition to walking three, ultimately leading to his early exit. The 29-year-old owns an unimpressive 4.10 ERA and 1.30 WHIP through 147 innings (26 starts) this season, but his seven wins, 1.86 ERA and 1.01 WHIP in 13 starts at Petco Park make him a viable streaming option whenever he's on the bump for the Padres at home. He'll have a favorable matchup against the Giants in San Diego in his next scheduled start Monday.

Chacin (11-8) did not factor into the decision Thursday despite holding the Nationals to one earned run over 5.0 innings. He notched six strikeouts and issued four walks over 104 pitches.

EDGE Analysis

Chacin and Edwin Jackson were locked in an unlikely pitcher's duel Thursday as each hurler held their opponent to one run apiece. Chacin did his best to keep the Padres in it, leaving the game with the score tied after his pitch count climbed into the triple digits after five innings. A Ryan Zimmerman home run off of Kirby Yates ultimately did the Padres in as the Friars simply couldn't find an answer against Washington's pitching. Chacin has allowed less than three runs in five of his last six outings, but he's notched just one win in his last four starts. He's lined up to face the Cardinals on Wednesday in St. Louis for his next start.
