In four starts but just 18 innings at High-A, Double-A and Triple-A, Chacin sports an ERA of 7.00.
The 24-yea-old righthander could and should keep getting stronger and his results should speak to that so look for him to reach the Rockies. Just don't expect the Best of Chacin quite yet.
Gagnon doesn't yet look sharp and strong as he was in 2011 (2.57 ERA in 14 starts). With health and shaking off rust, he could be much more formidable in 2013. Follow him.
Grand Junction outfielder David Dahl finished with four hits in a doubleheader and now has a ridiculously-good .381 average in a ridiculously-strong season.
Dahl has teammates playing well too as catcher Wilfredo Rodriguez doubled and homered, had four hits. He is now hitting .330, although with limited power. Outfielder Jeffrey Popick homered, finished with two hits in game 1, added another hit in game 2 and is hitting .349
Will all three of these players hit at such high levels as they move on or are they products of their home park and a rookie league? Time will tell. For now, they are excelling and impressive.
Matt Flemer is another Dust Devil relief pitcher doing well, just on a smaller sample size. Flemer's ERA is 1.65 in 16 1/3 innings.
