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

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

It was no secret the Chicago Cubs would need to add rotation help this offseason.

The Cubs' primary goal this offseason is to find replacements for starters Jake Arrieta and John Lackey, who both filed for free agency.

Right-handed pitcher Tyler Chatwood - not Shohei Ohtani - solidified his future by inking a three-year deal with the Cubs Thursday afternoon.

A six-year Major League Baseball veteran, Chatwood spent the past five years with the Colorado 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 has had stark home-road splits while calling hitter-friendly Coors Field his home.

More runs were scored at Coors Field than any other park in 2017, per ESPN. He registered a 6.01 ERA and allowed foes to hit.302 at Coors Field last season. He was limited to four starts in 2014 and missed the 2015 season because of Tommy John surgery. By comparison, Chatwood owned a 5-7 mark with a 3.49 ERA in 16 games on the road. The Angels selected him in the second round of the 2008 amateur draft. He figures to slot into the rotation behind Jon Lester, Kyle Hendricks and Jose Quintana. He led the league with 15 losses in 2017, but went 12-9 with a 3.87 ERA with the Rockies in 2016.

The 27-year-old Chatwood was one of the youngest and most intriguing free agents on the market.
