Blue Jays DFA'd 27 y.o. LHP Gustavo Chacin today.
He's a young lefty starter and had a pretty nice season in '05 but has not approached that level of success the last 2 years.
I'm curious about why the Jays cut him loose? Does anyone know if he's damaged goods?
If not, is he the kind of guy that might benefit from a move to the NL and could he be a cheap LH starter option for Walt to look at? I'm not one to advocate the Reds chase after every broken-down, rag arm reject/retread cast off by another team, but Chacin would seem on the surface to be a different case. Thoughts?
