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. Apr 27 - 1:53 AM

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.
Apr 1 - 1:36 AM

Tyler Chatwood gave up two runs in his four-inning start against the Angels on Thursday.

He allowed a lot of baserunners but was able to limit the damage. He surrendered eight base hits and issued one walk while punching out five. Chatwood missed most of 2014 and all of 2015 to elbow surgery. He returned to action last year with a quality season -- especially considering half his games were at Coors Field. He turned in a 12-9 record with a 3.87 ERA in 27 starts. He is solidly entrenched in the middle of the Rockies' starting rotation.
Mar 16 - 8:51 PM

Tyler Chatwood struck out four while allowing one run on three hits over four innings of work against the Cubs in Saturday's Cactus League showdown.

Chatwood coughed up a solo home run to Kyle Schwarber with two outs in the third inning, but otherwise kept the scoreboard clean. In 27 starts this past season, he registered a 3.87 ERA. Those in deeper NL-only formats should view him as a streaming option, rather than a lock rotational piece.
Mar 11 - 6:08 PM

Tyler Chatwood limited the Dodgers to one run in three innings Monday.

The lone run came courtesy of a solo homer off the bat of Joc Peterson. Chatwood gave up three hits in all while striking out one and walking one. The 27-year-old posted a 3.87 ERA over 27 starts last season, but he’s purely a streaming option in fantasy leagues. Keep in mind that he had a 1.69 ERA on the road compared to a 6.12 at home.
Mar 6 - 7:34 PM

Tyler Chatwood yielded two hits and one run over two innings Wednesday in the Rockies' Cactus League win over the Padres.

He finished with a walk and two strikeouts. Chatwood gave up a triple to Manuel Margot in the game’s opening at bat but found his groove after that, retiring six of the last eight hitters he faced. 21 of the right-hander’s 38 pitches went for strikes. Even while playing half his games at Coors Field, Chatwood still managed a tidy 3.87 ERA last season. We’ll see what he does for an encore in 2017.
Mar 1 - 6:16 PM

Rockies and RHP Tyler Chatwood avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $4.4 million contract.

The 27-year-old emerged as a fixture in the Rockies' starting rotation in 2016, going 12-9 with a 3.87 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 117/70 K/BB ratio in 158 innings. He earned just $1 million in 2016 and is projected by to bring home $4.88 million in arbitration.
Jan 13 - 7:24 PM

Tyler Chatwood allowed three hits over eight scoreless innings and struck out nine Wednesday in beating the Giants.

Chatwood's season ends much like it started. The middle wasn't as pleasant, but he showed what he can do while healthy; he allowed one or no runs in 10 of his 27 starts. What he does need to demonstrate is that he can stay healthy; his 27 starts and 158 innings this season were new career highs.

Tyler Chatwood kept the Dodgers in check in Thursday's no-decision, allowing two runs on five hits over six innings.

Chatwood had some issues with his control in this one, as he walked four and threw just 57 of his 102 pitches for strikes. He pitched well enough for the win and exited with a 4-2 lead, but the Rockies bullpen imploded like an imperfectly made submarine after he left the game, surrendering five runs in the seventh inning and ultimately falling by a final score of 7-4. The 26-year-old right-hander will bring a 4.08 ERA and 1.41 WHIP into a road showdown with the Giants in his final start of the season.

Tyler Chatwood was hit hard for seven runs over five innings in a no-decision against the Padres on Friday.

Chatwood limited the Padres to one run in 6 2/3 innings in San Diego last weekend, but Coors Field wasn’t as kind to him. He gave up eight hits (including two homers) while walking a pair. He’s now 4-9 with a 6.12 ERA at home this season. Fortunately, his next start comes on the road against the Dodgers next week.

Tyler Chatwood pitched 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball and went 2-for-3 with a two-run triple to lead the Rockies to a 4-1 win over the Padres on Friday.

It was his first career triple and first extra-base hit of this season; he was 6-for-34 at the plate entering the night. Chatwood got the job done on the mound, too, as he typically has away from Coors Field this year. He's 11-9 with a 3.82 ERA, which includes a 7-1 mark and a 1.77 ERA in 11 road outings. He's 4-8 with a 5.67 ERA in 13 starts at home.

Tyler Chatwood got roughed up for six runs -- five earned -- in five innings of work in a loss to the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

He surrendered seven hits and one base-on-balls while fanning three. Most of the damage came in the third inning when he gave up a three-run double to Welington Castillo that was immediately followed by a two-run homer off the bat of Jake Lamb. Chatwood has been surprisingly effective this year despite the altitude, but most of his success came early in the year. He had a 3.29 ERA in the first half of the season and a 5.12 ERA in the second half. Overall he sits at 10-8 with a 3.94 ERA in 132 1/3 innings.
