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.
First batch of Ugandan troops withdrawing from Somalia return home
It is unknown why the African countries and the African Union have chose to withdraw troops at this time. Some 20,000 soldiers are now serving as part of the UN-backed fight against Al-Shabaab in Somalia.
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.
