Jhoulys Chacin getting MRI on sore right shoulder

So, uh, this is some pretty disturbing news for the Rockies …

Our own Matthew Pouliot estimates that Chacin is the third-most important player on Colorado’s roster, behind only Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez, and notes that the rotation without him goes Jorge De La Rosa, Tyler Chatwood, Brett Anderson, Juan Nicasio, then either Jordan Lyles or Franklin Morales.

The Rockies have a nice-looking offense, but it’s hard to see them competing with that group of starters.

Chacin, 26, posted a 3.47 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, and 126/61 K/BB ratio across 197 1/3 innings last season.
