Cubs Sign Tyler Chatwood to 3-Year Deal

  • Cubs sign starting pitcher Tyler Chatwood to 3-year deal

On Thursday, the Cubs announced that they've signed pitcher Tyler Chatwood to a three-year deal through the 2020 season.

More runs were scored at Coors Field than any other park in 2017, per ESPN. He finished with a 4.69 ERA while moving in and out of the starting rotation, and his 77 walks were fourth-highest in the majors.

Last season Chatwood was 8-15 with a 4.69 ERA in 33 appearances (25 starts) for the Colorado Rockies last season. His loss total last season tied for the most in the National League.

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.




In fact, when MLB Network's Jon Morosi reported last month that the pitching-hungry Baltimore Orioles were interested in Chatwood, the last team I thought would be in play for him would be the Cubs.

Chatwood, a second-round pick by the Angels in 2008, spent seven seasons with the Angels and Rockies, but missed the entire 2015 after undergoing reconstructive elbow surgery. Mike Montgomery will once again prepare as a starter in spring training and fill a rotation role as needed.

The Cubs signed Tyler Chatwood to a three-year deal. Keep in mind that the money Chatwood is earning also could have been put towards an extension for Hendricks, who is about to go to arbitration for the first time, or even star third baseman and former MVP Kris Bryant.
