Tyler Chatwood walked four but limited the Giants to just two runs on five hits over six innings while taking a no-decision in Sunday's win.
Chatwood was not at his sharpest in terms of control (62 strikes in 114 pitches), but the Giants were mostly unable to capitalize on his inability to find the strike zone. The only run-scoring damage on his line came in the form of a two-run home run surrendered to Brandon Crawford in the fifth inning. He will bring a 4.08 ERA and 1.30 WHIP into a road start against the Dodgers next time he toes the rubber. The road warrior holds a 2.41 ERA and 0.99 WHIP in eight starts away from Coor's Field this season. Jun 18 - 6:30 PM

Tyler Chatwood pitched well in a no-decision against the Pirates on Tuesday, allowing just one run on six hits over six strong innings.

The right-hander walked one and punched out five on the night. He has been mighty impressive while away from Coors Field this season and Tuesday's gem was no exception. The only blemish on his night was a solo homer off the bat of Andrew McCutchen in the fourth inning. Unfortunately for Chatwood and his fantasy owners, his next outing will come at home against the Giants on Sunday.
Jun 13 - 9:55 PM

Tyler Chatwood allowed one run on four hits over six innings in Thursday's win over the Cubs.

Chatwood struck out four and walked two on the evening. He surrendered a solo home run to Kris Bryant in the first inning, but shut the Cubs down on the scoreboard over the next five innings. With this one in the books, Chatwood will bring a 4.37 ERA and 1.29 WHIP into a road showdown with the Pirates next time he takes to the mound. He tends to be a much, much more useful fantasy option on the road than he does at home, where he owns a 7.03 ERA in six starts.
Jun 8 - 11:13 PM

Tyler Chatwood held the Padres to one run over eight innings in a win Saturday.

Chatwood gave up a solo homer to Austin Hedges but nothing more, limiting the Friars to just four hits and a walk. The right-hander struck out eight in the win. There hasn't been much room for gray area in Chatwood's 12 starts, winning five and losing seven. It all adds up to a 4.60 ERA and 1.31 WHIP. The Cubs will offer a slightly tougher test than the Padres when Chatwood and the Rockies visit Chicago next Friday.
Jun 3 - 11:16 PM

Tyler Chatwood was lit up for six earned runs over just 4 1/3 innings Monday in the Rockies' loss to the Mariners.

Chatwood gave up just one hit and struck out eight batters over seven shutout innings in his last start Wednesday versus the Phillies, but Monday was a very different experience for the 27-year-old right-hander. He walked three, gave up seven hits, and tallied only three strikeouts. Chatwood stands 4-7 on the year with a 5.04 ERA and 1.40 WHIP.
May 29 - 6:42 PM

Tyler Chatwood allowed just one base hit and struck out eight batters in seven shutout innings to beat the Phillies 7-2 on Wednesday.

He carried a no-hitter into the fifth inning when catcher Andrew Knapp singled. Chatwood walked four batters and picked one of them off base. He threw 112 pitches and had to be pulled after seven innings. His record improves to 4-6 with a 4.50 ERA and 1.33 WHIP. He will face the Mariners and Padres in a two-start week coming up next.
May 25 - 12:04 AM

Tyler Chatwood allowed just two runs but walked five and gave up five hits over five innings in a loss to the Twins in Thursday's nightcap.

Chatwood did well to limit the Twins' scoring, but his 105 pitches over five innings forced his exit after five. It's not an uncommon theme for the right-hander -- he's failed to get through the sixth inning in five of his nine starts this year. Much of that has been due to ineffectiveness, and after Thursday Chatwood owns a 5.09 ERA and 1.42 WHIP through 53 innings overall. The 27-year-old will take on the Phillies next.
May 18 - 10:28 PM

Tyler Chatwood dropped to 3-5 after giving up five runs in 4 1/3 innings Friday against the Dodgers.

It's the home run ball that had been Chatwood's big problem this year, but he didn't give up any tonight after surrendering nine in his first seven starts. What he did do was walk four batters. He's always had issues there, and the walks can be a lot more costly when he's struggling to keep the ball in the yard.
May 13 - 1:04 AM

Tyler Chatwood was masterful in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks, tossing seven-plus innings of one-run ball.

Chatwood stuck out five and walked three on the afternoon. He finished out his fine performance having thrown 95 pitches (53 for strikes). This start was a breath of fresh air as compared to what had come before, as Chatwood had been tattooed for 14 runs on 19 hits combined in his last three outings. He will try for a repeat of Sunday's result in a home start against the Dodgers next time he toes the rubber.
May 7 - 7:13 PM

Tyler Chatwood was roughed up for five runs, four hits and four walks over just 5 1/3 innings in a loss Tuesday at San Diego.

Chatwood delivered just 54 of his 95 pitches in the strike zone, serving up a pair of back-to-back homers in the sixth inning to Yangervis Solarte and Ryan Schimpf. That was good enough to send him to the showers as he took his fourth loss in six decisions. Chatwood has allowed at least four earned runs in five of his six appearances while yielding nine homers in just 36 2/3 innings. As such he is only worth fantasy consideration in the deepest of NL play at the moment.
May 3 - 1:50 AM

Tyler Chatwood was tagged for five runs in five innings by the Nationals on Wednesday.

Coming into this season, Chatwood had allowed a homer every 10.6 innings in his career, a strong rate for a guy who has spent a lot of time in Coors. This year, though, he's giving up homers at twice that pace, surrendering seven in 31 1/3 innings. His groundball rate remains strong and his velocity is as good as ever, so hopefully that home run rate is a fluke.

Tyler Chatwood mowed through the Giants on Saturday, allowing two hits in a complete-game, 5-0 shutout.

Chatwood issued one walk and struck out four, needing an economical 105 pitches to put away a Giants lineup sans Buster Posey and Brandon Belt. It was a drastic change from his first two starts, both losses, in which he gave up four runs in each. It's a wonder what nine shutout innings will do for your earned run average, dropping it from 6.35 to 3.54 after Saturday. Chatwood will have an opportunity to repeat the feat -- or the Giants will have a chance at revenge -- when the two teams meet in Colorado next weekend.
Apr 15 - 9:58 PM

Tyler Chatwood lost to the Padres after surrendering four runs in 5 1/3 innings Monday.

Chatwood struck out seven, but he gave up seven hits, including a couple of homers. He's taken two of the Rockies' three losses through their eight games this season.
Apr 11 - 12:14 AM

Tyler Chatwood took a loss in his 2017 debut after giving up four runs in six innings against the Brewers.

Chatwood had a 1.69 ERA and allowed just four homers in 13 road starts last year. This year, he's already given up two homers in one road start. He'll still be a streaming play at times, though. He's one of baseball's more underrated pitchers.
Apr 6 - 12:24 AM

Tyler Chatwood allowed four runs on six hits in three innings against the Mariners on Friday.

He ends the spring with a 4.09 ERA in 22 innings spread over six starts. He will pitch in the middle of the Rockies' rotation again this year. He notched a 12-9 record with a surprisingly good 3.87 ERA in 27 starts last season.
