Chacon Signs With Newark Bears

Former MLB right-hander Shawn Chacon has signed with the Newark Bears of the Atlantic League.

The 31-year-old spent time with the Rockies, Yankees, Pirates, and finished up last season as a member of the Astros. His 2008 season - and possibly his Major League career - came to an end when he got into a physical altercation with general manager Ed Wade, throwing him to the ground after being demoted from the rotation.

He was 45-61 with a 4.99 ERA as a major leaguer, and went 2-3 with a 5.04 ERA last year in Houston.
