Signed by the Colorado Rockies as a non-drafted free agent on Sept. 27, 2004... in 2013, Jhoulys set career highs in wins (14) and innings pitched (197.1) while starting a career-high-tying 31 games for the Rockies...he was 14-10 with a 3.47 ERA (197.1 ip, 76 er) with 19 quality starts... Was placed on the disabled list on 4/20 with a left lower back strain and was reinstated on 5/5...his 31 starts were tied with teammate Juan Nicasio for most starts while his 126 strikeouts led the team... Chacin became the third-youngest Rockie pitcher to open the season as the team's Opening Day starter at the age of 25 years and 84 days old...David Nied in 1993 (24 years, 104 days) and Jason Jennings in 2003 (24 years, 258 days) are the only other younger Opening Day starters over the franchise's 21 Opening Day's...the 25-year old didn't disappoint going 6.2 innings and allowing one run on three hits with six strikeouts in the no-decision... Forced opponents to ground into 30 double plays this year...that's the second-most by a NL pitcher, trailing only Adam Wainwright (32)...20 of those came at Coors Field which led all pitchers for GDPs at home... In the first half of the 2013 season, Jhoulys established a career-best 5-game winning streak (6/11-7/4)...during the streak that spanned 5 games, he tossed 34.1 combined innings and allowed just 8 runs (2.10 ERA) and allowed 30 hits...he became the second Rockies pitcher this year to have a 5-game winning streak (De La Rosa, 5/7-6/2)... Chacin set a new record for the longest a pitcher has taken a no-hitter in a game on 8/28 vs. SF at Coors Field (previous 6.1 no-hit ip by John Thomson 5/2/02 vs. PIT)...Chacin took a no-hitter into the 7th inning, before Brandon Crawford broke up the no-hit bid with a 2-out single...he also matched Jorge De La Rosa on 5/12 at STL for the longest a Rockies pitcher has taken a no-hitter this season.
