Cubs give RHP Chatwood 3-yr., $38M deal

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

Chicago has signed right-hander Tyler Chatwood to a three-year deal, the team announced Thursday afternoon. The three-year deal is reportedly worth roughly $40 million, according to the MLB Network.

The Cubs could potentially lose right-hander Jake Arrieta as a free agent this offseason, so signing Chatwood gives Chicago another bona fide starter.

Chatwood, 27, was 8-15 with a 4.69 ERA in 33 appearances (25 starts) for the Colorado Rockies last season.

Chatwood sported a 6.01 ERA and 1.68 WHIP at hitter-friendly Coors Field a year ago, but his numbers on the road indicate the Cubs may have acquired a nice under-the-radar starting pitcher: 3.49 ERA, 1.23 WHIP. He was also hurt by too many free passes, as his 77 walks were fourth-highest in the majors.

That indicates clear room for improvement for Chatwood, a groundball pitcher who now has the benefit of pitching in front of one of the game's best infield defenses.

Since 2016, Chatwood is tied with Washington's Stephen Strasburg for the second-best road ERA in the NL at 2.57.

The 27-year-old likely will be thrilled to leave Coors Field in his rear-view mirror, as he limped to a 3-8 record with a 6.01 ERA in 17 games in Denver last season.
