Jhoulys Chacin has had a nice run of late, allowing 10 runs in his last 39.1 innings, a stretch covering seven starts. Four of those runs came in one outing against the Dodgers. He gets a decent matchup against the Cubs on Sunday, though their offense has been better than you think. They've scored 384 runs, right in the middle of the league at 15th, and have a .710 OPS, which ties them for 17th. Still, if you need a starter on Sunday, Chacin is your second-best bet.
