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.

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.

Rockies activated RHP Tyler Chatwood from the 15-day disabled list.

He'll return to the Rockies starting rotation on Tuesday, taking on the Giants. Prior to missing nearly a month of action with a lower back strain, Chatwood had compiled a terrific 3.15 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 53/29 K/BB ratio over 85 2/3 innings.
Jul 5 - 6:52 PM

Rockies manager Walt Weiss announced Sunday that Tyler Chatwood (back) will start on Tuesday against the Giants.

The right-hander has been sidelined since mid-June due to a lower back strain. Prior to landing on the shelf, he had an excellent 3.15 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 53/29 K/BB ratio over 85 2/3 innings despite pitching half of his games in Colorado. Chatwood fired five scoreless innings in his minor league rehab start with High-A Modesto on Thursday.

Tyler Chatwood (back) will make a rehab start with High-A Modesto on Thursday.

Tyler Chatwood (back) threw all his pitches during Sunday's bullpen session.

He'll throw another on Monday in hopes of beginning a rehab assignment on Thursday. Chatwood seems to be making solid progress in his recovery from a strained lower back. He's been a borderline All-Star this year with eight wins and a 3.15 ERA in 14 starts.

Rockies placed RHP Tyler Chatwood on the 15-day disabled list with a mid-back strain.

Chatwood had to depart Saturday's game with the injury and apparently wasn't feeling any better the next day. The good news is he's expected back when his 15 days are up. Eddie Butler will take his spot in the Rockies' rotation.
Jun 19 - 12:00 PM

Tyler Chatwood left his start Saturday against the Marlins because of a mid-back spasm.

Chatwood couldn't even make it through two innings and he wound up getting charged with three earned runs. The right-hander will be reevaluated Sunday.
Jun 18 - 5:45 PM

Tyler Chatwood was lifted from his start Saturday against the Marlins with an apparent injury.

Chatwood was charged with three earned runs over 1 2/3 innings. He told reporters after his last start that he felt ill, and this early exit Saturday could obviously be related. There should be an update shortly.
Jun 18 - 5:18 PM

Tyler Chatwood improved to 8-4 by surrendering just three runs over 6 2/3 innings Saturday in a win over the Padres.

It wasn't a masterpiece but Chatwood pitched well enough to get the win, limiting San Diego to six hits while throwing 50 of his 92 pitches for strikes. It looked like it might be a rough afternoon for Chatwood after giving up a pair of runs in the first inning but he settled down by holding the Padres to one run the rest of the way. We don't usually recommend pitchers who call Coors Field home but Chatwood could be an exception to the rule. The right-hander has delivered a brilliant 2.89 ERA in 13 starts this year. His next outing will come Friday against the Marlins.
Jun 11 - 7:07 PM

Tyler Chatwood allowed just one run and one hit over eight innings in defeating the Dodgers on Monday.

Chatwood had just a 5/4 K/BB ratio on the night, not that it mattered. Howie Kendrick's single was the Dodgers' lone hit of the night in the 6-1 game. Chatwood moved to 7-4, and he probably deserves an even better record with his 2.74 ERA. He's allowed a total of four runs -- three earned -- in 41 2/3 innings away from Coors Field.
Jun 7 - 2:07 AM

Tyler Chatwood allowed just an unearned run over seven innings in Friday’s 5-2 win over the Giants.

And at Coors Field, to boot. Chatwood allowed just four hits and walked none while striking out three batters. He’s the first Rockies pitcher to throw seven innings or more with zero earned runs and zero walks at Coors Field since Juan Nicasio did it on July 15, 2011. Yep, it has been a while. Chatwood entered Friday’s action with a 6.65 ERA in four starts at home this season, so we wouldn’t say that he has turned a new leaf here. While the peripherals aren’t overly impressive, he has managed a 2.69 ERA through 10 starts overall. He remains a decent matchup play, though this start won’t change the fact that he’s best utilized on the road.

Tyler Chatwood limited the Pirates to one run over six innings but settled for a no-decision Saturday.

Chatwood allowed six hits and walked two, but he was matched by counterpart Jon Niese, who also allowed one run during his tenure. Chatwood has quietly put together a very good 2016 thus far, posting a 3.02 ERA and 1.22 WHIP through nine starts. He's one of the reasons the Rockies are in second place in the NL West. Speaking of the NL West, Chatwood will take on the division-rival Giants on Friday.
May 21 - 10:16 PM

Tyler Chatwood picked up his fifth victory of the season on Sunday, limiting the Mets to three runs on six hits over seven strong innings.

The right-hander punched out four while walking three in the ballgame. Yoenis Cespedes blasted a solo homer off him in the second inning and the Mets scratched out a pair of runs in the third, but Chatwood was able to bear down and keep them off the board the remainder of his afternoon. He has been mighty impressive through his first eight starts, compiling a 3.20 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 34/14 K/BB ratio across 50 2/3 innings. He'll look to keep things rolling when he does battle against the Pirates in Pittsburgh on Saturday.
