News: Red Sox sign Jhoulys Chacin to minor-league deal

184

The Red Sox have announced that the team has reached a minor-league deal with starter Jhoulys Chacin. Chacin started the season with the Brewers in 2019, but his poor performance led to a release last Monday. In 19 starts for the Brewers this season, Chacin went 3-10 with a 5.79 ERA.

The belief is that Chacin will be called up to the big league roster within the next few days. The right-handed starter has relief pitching experience, so his role with the Red Sox has yet to be determined.

This is a pretty decent pick up for the Red Sox. The team could use an extra arm with experience with Chris Sale being out and Chacin can provide that.
