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.

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.
Apr 23 - 11:39 PM

Tyler Chatwood fired seven shutout innings as the Rockies topped the Cubs on Sunday.

Chatwood was sensational, yielding only two hits and a walk while striking out seven as the Rockies managed a surprising 2-0 victory at Wrigley Field. They also won at Wrigley on Friday afternoon, managing to take two of three games from the preseason World Series favorites. Chatwood is a former top prospect with an intriguing arsenal, but it's hard to trust any Colorado pitcher in season-long fantasy formats. He gets the Dodgers at Coors Field next.
Apr 17 - 5:40 PM

Tyler Chatwood struggled mightily in Tuesday's loss to the Giants, surrendering five runs on 11 hits over six innings.

Chatwood pitched a sharp game (two runs over 6 1/3 innings) against the Diamondbacks in his season-opener, but no such luck on Tuesday. Hunter Pence accounted for three of the five runs on his line, striking for an RBI single in the third inning and a two-run homer in the fifth. Trevor Brown also burned Chatwood for a two-run tater in the sixth. While Chatwood is just 26 years old, he already has a pair of Tommy John surgeries to his name and his last season making at least 20 starts came in 2013. He will try for a rebound start when he heads to Wrigley to face the Cubs next time he toes the rubber.
Apr 13 - 12:30 AM

Tyler Chatwood turned in a nice outing in Wednesday's win over the Diamondbacks, surrendering two runs (one earned) on seven hits over 6 1/3 innings.

Chatwood struck out three without walking a batter. He ran into trouble in the third inning and allowed a pair of RBI grounders. That would be the only damage against his fair name for the afternoon. The 26-year-old right-hander has recovered from a pair of Tommy John surgeries to return to the big league rotation. Because of his injury history, Chatwood has yet to surpass 145 innings pitched in a season. He will tango with the Giants in a home start next time he toes the rubber.
Apr 6 - 6:25 PM

Tyler Chatwood surrendered four runs (one earned) over three innings Thursday against the Mariners.

The Mariners plated three runs in the third inning thanks to three errors, including one by Chatwood. The Rockies would have likely seen him get further into the game, but he got stretched out to 64 pitches. The 26-year-old is making his way back from his second Tommy John surgery and hasn’t pitched in a major league game since April 29, 2004. We’re not expecting much fantasy value here and he’ll likely face some sort of innings limit, but the Rockies are counting on him in their rotation.
Mar 24 - 8:03 PM

Tyler Chatwood allowed two runs over four innings against the Padres on Saturday.

Chatwood started the game by allowing a walk and then a two-run homer, but he righted the ship to shut the Padres down after that. He allowed just three hits and a walk on the afternoon, striking out two. Coming back from a second Tommy John surgery, Chatwood owns a 3.27 ERA this spring and should be one of the Rockies' better starters -- not necessarily a lofty designation -- this year.
Mar 19 - 8:08 PM

Tyler Chatwood spun three shutout innings without allowing a hit in Monday's victory over the Mariners.

Chatwood walked a pair of batters and didn't strike anyone out, so it wasn't all rosy. Still, the right-hander will definitely take it after missing last season following a second Tommy John surgery. He'll open the year in the Rockies' rotation.
Mar 14 - 8:51 PM

Tyler Chatwood (elbow) is entering spring training with a clean bill of health.

Chatwood missed the entire 2015 season while recovering from his second Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. "I'm really excited I get to be an athlete again," he said this weekend. "I am going to have a normal spring training and go through my outings like I normally would. We'll watch things closely, so that if I get tired we'll make sure I get the rest I need." If all goes smoothly this spring, Chatwood will likely be a member of the Rockies' Opening Day rotation.

Rockies activated RHP Tyler Chatwood from the 60-day disabled list.

The 25-year-old right-hander continues his recovery from a second Tommy John surgery. He's expected to be fully healthy and ready to roll for spring training where he'll compete for a spot in the Opening Day rotation.

Rockies manager Walt Weiss confirmed Thursday that Tyler Chatwood (elbow) will not return to the big league club this season.

Chatwood is in the process of recovering from a second Tommy John surgery, and the team is taking every possible precaution with him. Rather than rush him back for a few meaningless games in September, he'll be fully healthy and ready to roll for spring training.

Tyler Chatwood (elbow) threw a 15-pitch simulated game and 35-pitch bullpen session on Saturday.

Making his way back from a second Tommy John surgery, Chatwood is hoping to make it back before the end of the season. "This was a big day for him, and he was pretty happy coming off the mound," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "He's had this day circled for a long a while. ... I think his return is now in sight. Today was a big step, but there is a still a long way to go."

Tyler Chatwood (elbow) will start throwing breaking balls off a mound next week.

It's the first time he's done so since having Tommy John surgery last summer. Chatwood is hoping to be back before the end of the 2015 season.

Rockies placed RHP Tyler Chatwood on the 60-day disabled list with a right elbow injury.

The move frees up a 40-man roster spot for John Axford. Chatwood will miss the majority of the 2015 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery.
