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

Chatwood posted an 8-15 mark and a 4.69 ERA in 33 appearances last season for the Colorado Rockies.

The signing of Chatwood does not remove the Cubs from the free agent market.

On Thursday, the team agreed to a three-year deal with starting pitcher Tyler Chatwood which adds some much-needed help to the backend of the Cubs rotation for 2018. 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 has had stark home-road splits while calling hitter-friendly Coors Field his home.

For what it's worth, he also has an 0.69 ERA and 0.69 WHIP in two career starts at Wrigley Field. On the road, he recorded a 3.49 ERA and held foes to a.200 batting average. That stellar season came after he missed all of 2015 because of his second Tommy John surgery.

The Cubs have signed a pitcher, but not the one that's been dominating the last 11 news cycles (.yet?). The Angels selected him in the second round of the 2008 amateur draft.

Chatwood sported a 6.01 ERA and 1.68 WHIP at hitter-friendly Coors Field previous year, but his numbers on the road indicate the Cubs may have acquired a nice under-the-radar starting pitcher: 3.49 ERA, 1.23 WHIP.
