Tyler Chatwood (back) played catch on Saturday.
It's the first time he's thrown since he was placed on the disabled list last week with mid-back spasms. "I just played catch from 75 feet," Chatwood said. "I already feel a lot better, and the spasms have calmed down." Chatwood missed two starts earlier this season with a similar injury and is probably looking at a similar timetable this time around.

Rockies placed RHP Tyler Chatwood on the 15-day disabled list with an upper back injury.

Chatwood began experiencing upper back tightness during his last start Sunday against the Phillies, in which he yielded six earned runs over just four innings. The right-hander has been pretty good overall this year, holding a 3.75 ERA in 22 starts. It's tough news for a team trying to gain ground in the National League Wild Card race.

Tyler Chatwood experienced upper back tightness during Sunday's loss to the Phillies.

Chatwood labored through four innings in the ballgame. Walking five and giving up six hits. Depending on how he feels the next few days could determine if he's able to make his next start.
Aug 14 - 5:34 PM

Tyler Chatwood allowed six earned runs over four innings Sunday in the Rockies' loss to the Phillies.

Chatwood walked five and gave up six hits, including a Jimmy Paredes home run in the bottom of the fourth inning. The right-hander now stands 10-8 with a 3.75 ERA and 1.39 WHIP through 22 starts this season. He has issued 58 walks in 127 1/3 innings.
Aug 14 - 5:17 PM

Tyler Chatwood held the Rangers to two earned runs over 6 2/3 innings Tuesday but took a no-decision.

Colorado's bullpen allowed five runs to blow the lead for Chatwood and the Rockies' offense. Chatwood struck out eight, walked none, and scattered five hits over his 6 2/3 frames. He'll carry a 10-7 record and 3.58 ERA into his next start on the road against the Phillies.
Aug 9 - 6:28 PM

Tyler Chatwood allowed four runs on nine hits over six innings in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers.

Chatwood struck out six and walked three on the evening, and a Corey Seager solo home run was among his nine hits allowed. Despite the subpar outing, Chatwood's numbers remain solid despite starting half his games at Coors, as the right-hander is 10-7 with a 3.63 ERA in 20 starts overall. His assignment doesn't get any easier Tuesday, though, when the Rangers come to town.
Aug 5 - 12:32 AM

Tyler Chatwood spun seven innings of one-run ball in a 6-1 win over the Mets on Friday.

While he walked four batters, the only damage came on a solo homer from James Loney in the second inning. Perhaps Chatwood should change his nickname to Hawk or Animal, because he’s a Road Warrior. He now owns a 1.30 ERA through nine starts on the road this season. Not surprisingly, he hasn’t been nearly as effective at home, where he has a 5.69 ERA in 10 starts. He gets the Dodgers at Coors Field next week.
Jul 29 - 10:59 PM

Tyler Chatwood walked eight batters but held the Braves scoreless over five innings Sunday for his ninth win of the season.

That pretty much sums up the current state of the Atlanta offense. Chatwood threw just 51 of his 97 pitches for strikes and put nine batters on base, but the Braves couldn't manage a run until the top of the seventh inning and fell 7-2. Chatwood stands 9-6 with a 3.65 ERA, 1.37 WHIP, and 66/46 K/BB ratio in 103 2/3 innings this season. He'll take on the Mets at home next.
Jul 24 - 7:17 PM

Tyler Chatwood struggled in a losing effort against the Phillies on Sunday, allowing four runs on eight hits over five innings.

Chatwood also issued three walks while striking out two on the afternoon. He has been tremendous on the road this season, but has predictably struggled at home in Coors Field. He finishes a strong first half with an 8-5 record, 3.29 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in 16 starts spanning 95 2/3 innings.
Jul 10 - 8:05 PM

Tyler Chatwood posted a mix-bag start in Tuesday's no-decision against the Giants, walking four but allowing only two runs (one earned) over five innings.

Chatwood was just activated off the disabled list prior to Tuesday's game. He had been dealing with a lower back strain for the past few weeks. The rust showed at times against the Giants, but he mostly managed to keep matters under control. He will carry a fetching 3.08 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 57/33 K/BB ratio (90 2/3 innings) into a Sunday home start against the Phillies to close out the first half of the Rockies' season next time he takes the mound.

Chatwood fired five scoreless innings in his minor league rehab start with High-A Modesto on Thursday.
