PHOENIX (AP) The Arizona Diamondbacks have outrighted right-hander Jhoulys Chacin from the 40-man roster.

The Diamondbacks said Chacin elected for free agency rather than accepting a minor league assignment.

Chacin joined the Diamondbacks late last season, going 2-1 with a 3.38 ERA in five appearances, four starts. The former Colorado pitcher spent most of last season at the Triple-A level, splitting time with Columbus and Reno. He had a combined record of 7-6 with a 3.22 ERA in his stints with the two teams.
