LANCASTER — The Lancaster Barnstormers announced Wednesday that they have acquired right-handed pitcher and former Cincinnati Red Alejandro Chacin in a trade with the Sugarland Skeeters.
In exchange for Chacin, Sugarland receives Lancaster relievers Kevin Munson and Stephen Johnson, Barnstormers manager Ross Peeples said in a press release Wednesday.
Chacin, 25, posted a 1.64 earned run average in 11 innings of work over 10 games last season with Sugarland. The Venezuela native allowed 13 hits, but only issued two walks and struck out seven batters.
The Lancaster Barnstormers have received right-hander Alejandro Chacin from the Sugar Land Skeeters as a player-to-be-named later in the recent trade for relievers Kevin Munson and Stephen Johnson, it was announced today by manager Ross Peeples.
Chacin, 25, appeared in 10 games for the Skeeters late last season, posting a 1.64 ERA over his 11 innings of work. The native of Venezuela yielded 13 hits but only two walks while striking out seven.
Chacin signed with the Reds in 2010 and spent eight years in the minors before making six appearances with Cincinnati in 2017.
During his eight years in the minors, Chacin posted 2.72 ERA, with 96 saves. Working exclusively out of the bullpen, Chacin has given up 345 hits in 434 innings of relief.
“Chacin has put up very good numbers through his minor league career,” said Peeples. “He will be used in several ways out of our bullpen. We’re happy to have him in the Barn.”
