25-year old righty starting pitcher Jhoulys Chacin is off to a red hot start for the Rockies in 2013.  He has started 2 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 1-0 with a 1.00 ERA and a 0.90 WHIP.  This is a good sign for the Rockies and Chacin, as he is coming off a rough 2012 season in which he pitched in 14 games (all starts) and he was 3-5 with a 4.43 ERA and a 1.62 WHIP.  Chacin has now pitched in 84 games (69 starts) in his first five years with the Rockies and he is 24-31 with a 3.60 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP.  Chacin has the biggest upside of any of the starters on the Rockies, so they need him to remain focused and motivated.
