DENVER -- Pitcher Jhoulys Chacin and the Colorado Rockies avoided arbitration by finalizing a $6.5 million, two-year contract on Tuesday.

The 25-year-old right-hander is coming off an injury-plagued season in which he went 3-5 with a 4.43 ERA. He missed more than three months with shoulder inflammation.

Chacin gets $1.65 million this year and $4.85 million in 2014. He had asked for $2.6 million in arbitration and had been offered $1.7 million by the Rockies.

Colorado hopes the hard-throwing Chacin can develop into a staff ace. He has the second-lowest career ERA (3.68) by a Colorado pitcher who's had at least 50 starts.

A native of Maracaibo, Venezuela, Chacin was signed by Colorado as a free agent in September 2004.
