Rockies Rumors: Jhoulys Chacin Next for Extension; Likely No More Moves Until Camp

Jhoulys Chacin could be next up on the Colorado Rockies for an extension, according to Troy Renck of the Denver Post. Renck notes that one of the team strategies is to lock up young talent earlier than other teams might (similar to Rays/Longoria) in a pay-more-now/pay-less-later approach.

Also, the Rockies are likely done making moves at least until Spring Training:

  • Who's next in line for a big Rockies payout? - Troy Renck | The Denver Post
    "The next obvious candidate is Jhoulys Chacin, who could start opening day this season. He is eligible for salary arbitration in 2013 and can't become a free agent until 2016. Under similar circumstances, the Rockies secured Francis and Jimenez. 'But we aren't ready to do anything at this time,' general manager Dan O'Dowd said of Chacin."
