DENVER – Right-hander Jhoulys Chacín will stay with the Colorado Rockies after signing for a year and $ 1.25 million guaranteed on Saturday.
The agreement would allow the Venezuelan pitcher to obtain an additional $ 500,000 in performance bonuses.
Chacín, 33, was 3-2 with a 4.34 ERA in 45 career relief appearances, and one as a starter with Colorado, who signed him April 1 after the New The York Yankees discharged him after signing a minor league contract with him at the end of preseason camp.
He became a free agent after the World Series.
Chacín is 81-89 with a 4.06 ERA in 227 starting games and 76 as a reliever over 13 seasons with Colorado (2009-14, 2021), Arizona Diamondbacks (2015), Atlanta Braves (2016, 2020) , Los Angeles Angels (2016), San Diego Padres (2017), Milwaukee Brewers (2018-19) and Boston Red Sox (2019).
The Venezuelan would earn $ 125,000 for making five starts and for every five more until reaching 20. He would earn $ 125,000 for appearances of 30 pitches and that same figure for every 10 until reaching 60. His bonuses are capped at $ 500,000 dollars.
Last season his base salary with the Rockies was $ 800,000 and he took home $ 100,000 in bonuses: $ 50,000 for games of 30 and 40 pitches.
