Jhoulys Chacin

Key numbers

Pitched with Rockies from 2010-2014

Accumulated 14.5 WAR during the decade, per Baseball-Reference.com

Fourth in wins (38)

Second in innings pitched (661)

Fourth in strikeouts (501)

Quick thought: Chacin went 1-7 in 2014 and was released by the Rockies the following spring. Just one season before, the right-hander had posted a 14-10 mark and 3.47 ERA. He would go on to win 13 games for the Padres in 2017 and 15 with the Brewers one season later, highlighting a very up-and-down decade.

Despite the surprise release, Chacin was one of Colorado’s most successful pitchers in the decade.

Most memorable moment: In his first full season with the Rockies (2010), Chacin led all National League rookies with 138 strikeouts.

Next. Number 7. dark
