Tyler Chatwood signs with Cubs for 3 years, $38 million

Tyler Chatwood signs with Cubs for 3 years, $38 million

The Cubs quest for pitching help has led them to the signing of Tyler Chatwood.

Chatwood was 8-15 with a 4.69 ERA in 33 appearances (25 as a starter) with the Rockies last season, tying for the most losses in the NL.

The deal will keep Chatwood at Wrigley Field until the next decade, which is a good move for Chicago since they're certainly losing Jake Arrieta to free agency and needed to replace him with someone of the same caliber. It's worth $38 million, according to The Athletic's Sahadev Sharma.




Tyler Chatwood is getting a fresh start in the Windy City. 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.

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.

While some will dismiss Chatwood based on his lifetime 4.31 ERA and 1.49 WHIP, wise fantasy owners are aware that he posted a solid 3.18 ERA on the road (5.17 ERA at home) during his tenure with the Rockies. His curveball spin rate, a skill teams are seeking out these days, was among the best in baseball the last two years. Chicago also is waiting to see if Japanese two-way player Shohei Ohtani picks the Cubs, who are one of the seven finalists.
