Rockies placed RHP Tyler Chatwood on the 15-day disabled list with a mid-back strain.

Chatwood had to depart Saturday's game with the injury and apparently wasn't feeling any better the next day. The good news is he's expected back when his 15 days are up. Eddie Butler will take his spot in the Rockies' rotation.

Tyler Chatwood left his start Saturday against the Marlins because of a mid-back spasm.

Chatwood couldn't even make it through two innings and he wound up getting charged with three earned runs. The right-hander will be reevaluated Sunday.
Jun 18 - 5:45 PM

Tyler Chatwood was lifted from his start Saturday against the Marlins with an apparent injury.

Chatwood was charged with three earned runs over 1 2/3 innings. He told reporters after his last start that he felt ill, and this early exit Saturday could obviously be related. There should be an update shortly.
Jun 18 - 5:18 PM

Tyler Chatwood improved to 8-4 by surrendering just three runs over 6 2/3 innings Saturday in a win over the Padres.

It wasn't a masterpiece but Chatwood pitched well enough to get the win, limiting San Diego to six hits while throwing 50 of his 92 pitches for strikes. It looked like it might be a rough afternoon for Chatwood after giving up a pair of runs in the first inning but he settled down by holding the Padres to one run the rest of the way. We don't usually recommend pitchers who call Coors Field home but Chatwood could be an exception to the rule. The right-hander has delivered a brilliant 2.89 ERA in 13 starts this year. His next outing will come Friday against the Marlins.
Jun 11 - 7:07 PM

Tyler Chatwood allowed just one run and one hit over eight innings in defeating the Dodgers on Monday.

Chatwood had just a 5/4 K/BB ratio on the night, not that it mattered. Howie Kendrick's single was the Dodgers' lone hit of the night in the 6-1 game. Chatwood moved to 7-4, and he probably deserves an even better record with his 2.74 ERA. He's allowed a total of four runs -- three earned -- in 41 2/3 innings away from Coors Field.
Jun 7 - 2:07 AM

Tyler Chatwood allowed just an unearned run over seven innings in Friday’s 5-2 win over the Giants.

And at Coors Field, to boot. Chatwood allowed just four hits and walked none while striking out three batters. He’s the first Rockies pitcher to throw seven innings or more with zero earned runs and zero walks at Coors Field since Juan Nicasio did it on July 15, 2011. Yep, it has been a while. Chatwood entered Friday’s action with a 6.65 ERA in four starts at home this season, so we wouldn’t say that he has turned a new leaf here. While the peripherals aren’t overly impressive, he has managed a 2.69 ERA through 10 starts overall. He remains a decent matchup play, though this start won’t change the fact that he’s best utilized on the road.
May 28 - 12:35 AM

Tyler Chatwood limited the Pirates to one run over six innings but settled for a no-decision Saturday.

Chatwood allowed six hits and walked two, but he was matched by counterpart Jon Niese, who also allowed one run during his tenure. Chatwood has quietly put together a very good 2016 thus far, posting a 3.02 ERA and 1.22 WHIP through nine starts. He's one of the reasons the Rockies are in second place in the NL West. Speaking of the NL West, Chatwood will take on the division-rival Giants on Friday.
May 21 - 10:16 PM

Tyler Chatwood picked up his fifth victory of the season on Sunday, limiting the Mets to three runs on six hits over seven strong innings.

The right-hander punched out four while walking three in the ballgame. Yoenis Cespedes blasted a solo homer off him in the second inning and the Mets scratched out a pair of runs in the third, but Chatwood was able to bear down and keep them off the board the remainder of his afternoon. He has been mighty impressive through his first eight starts, compiling a 3.20 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 34/14 K/BB ratio across 50 2/3 innings. He'll look to keep things rolling when he does battle against the Pirates in Pittsburgh on Saturday.
May 15 - 8:08 PM

Tyler Chatwood was tagged for six runs in six innings by the Diamondbacks on Monday.

Chatwood has been one of the NL's better pitchers to date, but Coors Field will still lead to hiccups for him. He's a spot starter, not an every-week guy, in mixed leagues.
May 10 - 12:14 AM

Tyler Chatwood pitched marvelously in Wednesday's 2-0 win over the Padres, tossing eight innings of shutout ball.

Chatwood allowed just three hits on the afternoon. He also struck out seven against one walk in what was an ultra-efficient outing. The 26-year-old right-hander finished his eight innings having thrown 99 pitches (61 strikes). Relying on anybody in the Rockies' pitching staff for fantasy purposes carries its own set of risks, but there is no denying Chatwood's overall body of work. Through 37 2/3 innings, he holds a 2.15 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 27/8 K/BB ratio. Up next on his schedule, a home showdown with the Diamondbacks.
May 4 - 6:23 PM

Tyler Chatwood scattered five hits over 6 1/3 innings and combined with three relievers on a shutout of the Diamondbacks on Friday.

It's not saying a whole lot, but Chatwood certainly looks like the Rockies' ace from here; he's keeping the ball on the ground and he's amassed a 20/7 K/BB in 29 2/3 innings. It's been good for a 3-2 record and a 2.73 ERA to date. We're guessing he'll continue to be an above average starter, but with Coors weighing him down, he's a streaming option in mixed leagues at best.
Apr 30 - 1:22 AM

Thursday's game between the Pirates and Rockies has been postponed due to wet weather in Denver.

It was actually snowing at one point this morning at Coors Field. Tyler Chatwood was set to go for the Rockies and Juan Nicasio was scheduled for the Bucs. Those starters will presumably be pushed back to Friday.
Apr 28 - 1:37 PM

Tyler Chatwood only went four innings against the Dodgers on Saturday night and gave up three earned runs on six hits and two walks, striking out four.

Chatwood barely kept the dangerous Dodgers at bay all night. He teed up a two-run homer to A.J. Ellis in the second inning, but it could’ve gotten much worse in the third had Joc Pederson not lined out to second base with the bases loaded. The right-hander thrives when he pounds the strike zone and induces a myriad of ground balls. On Friday, he needed 95 pitches to span four innings, and only 52 of those pitches went for strikes. That won’t often end well, especially at Coors Field. Nonetheless, Chatwood has been pretty good this year, posting a 3.47 ERA and a pair of wins in 23 1/3 innings.
