 Chacin finished last season with a record of 11-14 and an ERA of 3.62.
Rockie’s Manager Jim Tracy had this to say about starting Chacin on opening day at Coors Field.”We’re going to send him out there where expectations will be high,” said Tracy, whose team finished up a season-opening, three-game series Sunday in Houston. ”He’s come a very, very long way and is starting to show some signs. With the right development, he could become one of those next big names out of the NL West.”

The Rockies took one game of the series with the Houston Astros over the weekend, so they start 1-3 against the winless San Francisco Giants (0-3) today.
