Newest Cubs pitcher Tyler Chatwood is a legit breakout candidate
08 December, 2017, 02:08 | Author: Ellis Copeland
The Chicago Cubs have been linked with some high-profile free agents on the pitching market, and they've finally made their first splash as they signed Tyler Chatwood to a three-year deal. He projects as a back-of-the-rotation starter for the Cubs, who lost Jake Arietta and John Lackey to free agency. His loss total last season tied for the most in the National League.
Chatwood doesn't turn 28 until next Saturday and has spent the last seven years pitching for the Colorado Rockies and Los Angeles Angels. Chatwood has been fantastic on the road in the past two seasons.
Part of the Cubs' belief is that Chatwood will find more consistency away from Coors Field.
Chatwood, 27, is 40-46 with two saves and a 4.31 ERA over 130 major-league appearances, including 113 starts. Those numbers were inflated by his performance at hitter-friendly Coors Field, where he had a 6.01 ERA in 17 games. He had a better season in 2016, going 12-9 with a 3.87 ERA with the Rockies. Since returning from his second career Tommy John surgery in 2016, he threw 305 2/3 innings with a 4.27 ERA (115 ERA+) for the Rockies.
The Cubs have had a knack for striking it big at baseball's winter meetings, as they did in December 2014 when they signed free-agent left-hander Jon Lester to a six-year, $155 million contract. Mike Montgomery will once again prepare as a starter in spring training and fill a rotation role as needed.
