Tyler Chatwood, Cubs Agree to Contract After 5 Seasons with Rockies

08 December 2017

He projects as a back-of-the-rotation starter for the Cubs, who lost Jake Arietta and John Lackey to free agency.

The Chicago Cubs have been linked with some high-profile free agents on the pitching market, and they've finally made their first splash as they signed Tyler Chatwood to a three-year deal. He struck out 120 batters in 147 2/3 innings and struggled with his control at times, walking 77 batters for a 4.7 walks-per-nine-innings rate.

Chatwood passes the age test with his 28th birthday coming next weekend, and his GB% and road numbers suggest that he will be a fine addition in the friendly confines of Wrigley Field.

At Least 3 Dead In New Mexico High School Shooting
Kyle Lincoln from the San Juan County Sheriff Department are clearing the building and actively searching the school. Christesen said the shooter also died, but it is unknown whether the suspect was among the three confirmed deaths.

The 27-year-old also had a strong end to the year, posting a 3.12 ERA in seven games (five starts) during September.

He was limited to four starts in 2014 and missed the 2015 season because of Tommy John surgery.

Part of the Cubs' belief is that Chatwood will find more consistency away from Coors Field. By comparison, Chatwood owned a 5-7 mark with a 3.49 ERA in 16 games on the road. He was tied for the league lead in losses despite the Rockies earning a Wild Card berth.

Chatwood has a career 4.31 ERA and 1.49 WHIP.

Chatwood has signed as a free agent with the Chicago Cubs. The Angels selected him in the second round of the 2008 amateur draft.
