Chacon Steady out of Bullpen

Shawn Chacon

Pirates' right-hander Shawn Chacon ranks first among all major league relief pitchers with 23.0 innings pitched this season. He has pitched very effectively in long relief posting a 0-0 record and 3.13 ERA.'s George Von Benko caught up with Chacon recently.

GVB,-- Shawn the club is off to a decent start - especially if you look at what happened last season.

SC-- It's nothing to be excited about it's so early. The start as a team we came out of the gate real good with that sweep in Houston, but I think everybody understands that it's a long season and there's going to be ups and downs and it's just a matter of how we go about our business everyday staying consistent and see how it plays out in the end.
