MLB News: Rob Scahill has been recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs to take the place of Rockies’ starter Jhoulys Chacin who has been placed on the disabled list. Chacin will likely miss the next two starts giving Scahill an opportunity to show what he’s got. Scahill has pitched 12 2/3 innings for Colorado Springs posting a not-so spectacular 4.26 ERA.
Fantasy Ramifications: Chacin was playing really well going 3-0 to start the year with a superb ERA of 1.46. It’s terrible news for his owners but you should get him back healthy in a couple of weeks. Even if you were desperate, I still wouldn’t pick up Scahill but in a short stint for the Rockies in 2012 he did well. Scahill appeared in 6 games going 8 1/3 innings and only giving up one earned run. Maybe a name to keep an eye on.
