Cubs bolster rotation by signing RHP Tyler Chatwood to 3-year deal

07 Décembre 2017

Right-hander Tyler Chatwood agreed to a three-year, $38 million deal with the Chicago Cubs, the team announced Thursday. The three-year deal is reportedly worth roughly $40 million, according to the MLB Network.

The Cubs could potentially lose right-hander Jake Arrieta as a free agent this offseason, so signing Chatwood gives Chicago another bona fide starter.

Meanwhile, Chatwood led the league with 15 losses last season, going 8-15 with one save and a 4.69 ERA in 33 appearances with the Rockies. 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, who turns 28 next week, is 40-46 with two saves.

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

More runs were scored at Coors Field than any other park in 2017, per ESPN. Chatwood missed much of 2014 and the entire 2015 after undergoing Tommy John surgery.

A second-round Draft pick by the Angels in 2008, Chatwood was traded to the Rockies in November 2011 for catcher Chris Iannetta.

In 2016 Chatwood posted a 12-9 mark with a 3.87 ERA.

The Cubs have rotation slots filled by Jon Lester, Kyle Hendricks and Jose Quintana.
