Cubs signed RHP Tyler Chatwood to a three-year, $38 million contract.
Chatwood might not have carried the name recognition of some of the other available starting pitchers on the free agent market this winter, but his ERA+ since 2013 (119) ranks better than Alex Cobb (117) and Lance Lynn (118). The 27-year-old right-hander also showed improved fastball velocity in 2017 and excelled away from Coors Field over the last two years, though he does carry durability issues and he has never pitched more than 158 innings in a single season. Chatwood has twice undergone Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. Overall, this looks like a crafty upside-driven move for the Cubs. Dec 7 - 1:23 PM

Date:'s Jon Morosi reports that Tyler Chatwood "is drawing widespread interest."

One source told Morosi that it's "probable" the right-hander nets a multi-year contract this offseason. Chatwood, who turns 28 next month, holds a pedestrian 4.31 ERA in his career, but teams are intrigued by what he could do away from Coors Field. He posted a 3.49 ERA and .695 opponents' OPS away from the thin Denver air in 2017. The Orioles and Rangers are two clubs known to have interest in Chatwood, but it sounds like there are probably a bunch more that have checked in with his agent.

According to Jon Morosi of MLB Network, the Orioles are showing interest in free agent starter Tyler Chatwood.

Chatwood might not be the sexiest name on this free agent market, but when you consider park factors (specifically the Coors Field effect) his numbers rank right up there with some of the available second-tier starters. The 27-year-old right-hander is also younger than many of the other guys out there. Baltimore badly needs rotation help and will probably be looking for it on a variety of fronts.

Tyler Chatwood got the loss on Wednesday, giving up three runs over six innings against the Giants.

Chatwood was excellent against the Padres on Friday, and he wasn't terrible Wednesday; he just didn't have a chance against a surprisingly excellent Matt Moore. He struck out four and walked two. It's unlikely Chatwood would be a member of the Rockies playoff rotation, but he could be a part of their bullpen should the Rockies advance into a five or seven game series.His next start will come Monday against the Marlins.
Sep 20 - 6:48 PM

Tyler Chatwood pitched 5 2/3 innings of one-run ball to beat the Padres at Coors Field on Friday.

Chatwood was yanked from the rotation in July because of his struggles at home -- he entered tonight 2-6 with a 6.25 ERA at Coors Field -- so this has to be a confidence booster. He was always one of the Rockies' five-best starters, and he'll almost certainly be in the rotation if the team advances to the NLDS. He'll be a streaming option next week with another start against the Padres, that one slated for San Diego.
Sep 16 - 12:15 AM

Tyler Chatwood worked five scoreless innings Sunday in the Rockies' defeat of the Dodgers.

Chatwood held the slumping Dodgers to two walks and five hits -- all singles -- while tallying five strikeouts. He's now 7-12 with a 4.70 ERA in 130 1/3 innings this season. The 27-year-old right-hander is lined up to face the Padres at home in his next start.
Sep 10 - 7:34 PM

Tyler Chatwood allowed four hits and three walks with three strikeouts across three scoreless innings in Tuesday's no-decision against San Francisco.

The club tabbed Chatwood for the assignment over Jeff Hoffman, as a starter was needed with Antonio Senzatela demoted to the bullpen. While he managed three scoreless frames, he struggled with only 28 strikes on 61 pitches. He is tentatively scheduled to start Sunday in L.A. against the Dodgers.
Sep 6 - 2:34 AM

Tyler Chatwood will start for the Rockies on Tuesday versus the Giants.

Antonio Senzatela has been sent back to the Rockies' bullpen, and the club has decided to go with Chatwood over Jeff Hoffman. It will be Chatwood's first start since August 2. He's posted a 2.79 ERA over his last six relief appearances.
Sep 4 - 5:37 PM

Tyler Chatwood has been moved back to the Rockies' bullpen.

Chatwood made a brief return to the rotation last week, but he's headed back to relief after he gave up eight runs -- seven earned -- against the Mets. Antonio Senzatela will rejoin the Rockies' rotation.
Aug 6 - 2:01 PM

Tyler Chatwood was lit up for eight runs -- seven earned -- in 5 1/3 innings by the Mets in a loss Wednesday.

Chatwood was making his first start since returning from the disabled list last week. His rotation status is unclear now; he's been a league average starter this year, but he's also been awfully unlucky when it comes to run support, leaving him with a 6-12 record to go along with his Coors-influenced 5.11 ERA (he has a 3.84 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP on the road). It's possible he'll get sent to the bullpen for good.
Aug 3 - 12:23 AM

Tyler Chatwood is set to rejoin the Rockies' starting rotation on Wednesday against the Mets.

German Marquez will be pushed back to work on Thursday. It's unclear if this will be a one-time thing due to the doubleheader on Sunday, or if Chatwood will remain in the Rockies' rotation for awhile. He owns a 4.78 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 88/62 K/BB ratio in 107 1/3 innings on the season.
Jul 30 - 8:13 PM

Rockies activated RHP Tyler Chatwood from the 10-day disabled list.

Chatwood will rejoin the Rockies as a reliever on Wednesday night in St. Louis after missing the last week-and-a-half with a right calf strain. The right-hander has a 4.74 ERA and 1.45 WHIP in 106 1/3 innings this season -- all as a starting pitcher.
Jul 26 - 4:07 PM

Tyler Chatwood (calf) said he felt strong after throwing one simulated inning Monday.

Chatwood, who landed on the disabled list earlier this month with a strained right calf, said he threw about 20 pitches. He's eligible to return on Wednesday, but it's unclear if he'll be ready by then. Chatwood owns a 4.74 ERA over 19 starts this season and could pitch out of the bullpen upon his return.

Rockies placed RHP Tyler Chatwood on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right calf.

Chatwood suffered the injury during Saturday's loss to the Mets. It's unclear at this point how long he'll be sidelined.
Jul 16 - 10:42 AM

Tyler Chatwood left Saturday's start against the Mets with a strained calf.

Chatwood looked out of sorts on Saturday, allowing one hit, three walks and four runs while recording just one out in the first inning. He threw a handful of warmup pitches after a trainer came out to check on him and was then removed from the game. The Rockies haven't provided a timetable for his recovery but it's fair to assume he won't make his next start.
