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.
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.
