After proving his worth to the Milwaukee Brewers, he signed a two-year contract worth $8 million with the team on December 20, 2017.
In 2018, Chacin was the team’s ace, going 15-8 with a 3.50 ERA in 35 starts, logging 192 2/3 innings, and striking out 156 batters.
He made his postseason debut on October 5th, pitching a scoreless five innings in Game 2 of the NLDS against the Rockies.
After that, he made two more starts in the National League Championship Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers and earned a 1-1, 2.45 record.
On October 20th, manager Craig Counsell chose to warm up ace reliever Josh Hader when he got into trouble in the critical Game 7 of the World Series.
Jhoulys was pinch-hit for in the bottom of the second inning because the manager didn’t want to put him through the rigors of the bullpen over and over again.
Even though the Milwaukee Brewers were one of the best teams in the National League in 2019, things did not go as well.
Opening Day starter Jhoulys was leading the league with 7 defeats, with just three victories in 12 starts, and his ERA was 5.74.
On May 31st, against the Pittsburgh Pirates, he had a particularly terrible outing, allowing seven runs in just two and third innings, including three straight walks with the bases loaded.
