Chacon (4-8, 3.28)          Harris (1-1, 1.69)

Shawn Chacon since arriving in New York:

ERA: 1.80
FIP: 3.61
xFIP: 4.93 (adjusts for home run rate)

Chacon's an extreme flyball pitcher who's been pretty lucky so far with the Yankees, allowing just two homers while putting 58 balls in the air. That luck is going to end, and it's going to end quickly. Hopefully it ends before Harris' luck turning balls in play into outs kicks the bucket.
