Chacin (6-7) gave up two runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out four over seven innings in a loss to the Braves on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Despite the loss, it was a strong effort from Chacin, who continues to post excellent numbers at home (1.83 ERA). His ERA is over 9.00 on the road, but Chacin is a viable streamer as his heavy groundball tendencies have proven to be a nice fit at Petco Park.

Chacin (6-6) held the Cubs to two runs over six innings Tuesday, only to get stuck with a loss. He struck out six while allowing five hits and three walks.

EDGE Analysis

Chacin has now turned in three consecutive quality starts, but his gems are few and far between, and he also tends to get blown up on a semi-regular basis. He's a matchup-based streamer at best in most formats.

Chacin (6-5) pitched seven innings, allowing two runs on five hits and one walk, with four strikeouts in Wednesday's win over the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

It didn't look like things were going to go well for Chacin, as he served up a home run to Jose Peraza to lead off the game. But he would allow just one more run - a Joey Votto solo shot - to earn his sixth win of the year. Wednesday marked the second straight start that Chacin allowed only two runs in seven innings, lowering his ERA to 5.10 in the process. He'll look to keep that streak going when the Padres visit the Cubs on Tuesday.

Chacin (5-5) tossed seven innings of two-run ball while striking out six in a 6-3 win over the Royals on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran continues to pitch well in the friendly confines of Petco Park, carrying a 1.58 ERA across 40 innings at home as opposed to a 10.27 ERA elsewhere. The formula for deploying Chacin in deep formats should be fairly apparent based on his splits, but his inability to pitch on the road and keep the ball in the yard (1.27 HR/9) keep him out of the conversation in standard leagues. The 29-year-old draws a high-powered Reds offense next Wednesday, but that start comes at home, so there is streaming appeal.

Chacin (4-5) allowed four runs -- three earned -- on six hits and three walks while striking out seven batters over six innings during Saturday's loss to Colorado.

EDGE Analysis

Chacin continues to pitch well at home and sports a spectacular 1.36 ERA and 0.85 WHIP with a serviceable 7.6 K/9 over five starts at Petco Park. His 10.27 ERA and 2.12 WHIP on the road are atrocious, but being selective when utilizing Chacin could pay off, especially as a streaming or daily contest option. Still, expectations should be kept in check. He lines up to face Kansas City at home in his next start.

Chacin allowed three runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out six batters over just 4.1 innings during Sunday's win over Washington. He didn't factor into the decision.

EDGE Analysis

Chacin has struggled on the road all season with a 10.27 ERA and 2.12 WHIP through seven starts, but he's allowed just two runs through 27 innings at Petco Park over his four home outings. The marked home-road split shouldn't be ignored, and Chacin is probably best utilized as a streaming option or low-priced flier in daily contests when pitching at Petco against favorable opponent. He projects to make his next start at home against the Rockies.

Chacin (4-4) lasted just two-thirds of an inning in Tuesday's start against the Mets, getting slammed for seven runs on eight hits.

EDGE Analysis

After a nine-run catastrophe in his first start of the year, Chacin had settled in impressively, going 4-2 with a 3.28 ERA and 1.14 WHIP over an eight-start span, but these hard-to-predict blowup outings really inflate his numbers. Chacin's now given up seven-plus runs thrice in 2017, leaving his season ERA at 5.74. He's streamable in head-to-head formats if you can tolerate the volatility, but that's more or less the extent of the veteran righty's fantasy worth.

Chacin fired seven innings of one-run ball Wednesday, walking two and striking out eight in a 3-1 loss to the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Despite turning in one of his best outings of the season, Chacin was not rewarded with a win after the Padres struggled to put up runs against Matt Garza. The eight strikeouts represented a season-high for the veteran starter. While his 4.43 ERA won't excite fantasy owners, Chacin has been pitching better of late, posting a 3.04 ERA and 1.10 WHIP over his last four starts. He will look to carry the momentum from Wednesday's start into his next matchup against the Mets next Tuesday.

Chacin (4-3) allowed three earned runs on seven hits and one walk Friday in picking up the win over the White Sox. He struck out two.

EDGE Analysis

It was the first successful start on the road this season for the 29-year-old righty, who had allowed 23 runs over four road starts entering Friday's contest. He was able to limit the damage against Chicago, however, and picked up his fourth win of the season. Chacin remains a streaming option in deeper leagues, especially on days when he's toeing the rubber at pitcher-friendly Petco Park. His next start will be Wednesday at home against Milwaukee.

Chacin will start Friday against the White Sox, rather than Thursday against the Rangers, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Chacin will flip spots in the rotation with Clayton Richard, though it's not exactly clear what motivated manager Andy Green to make the switch. Regardless, Chacin won't get much of an upgrade in terms of matchup, as both the Rangers and White Sox have been in the bottom third in the majors this season in terms of team wOBA.
