Newest Cubs pitcher Tyler Chatwood is a legit breakout candidate

On Thursday, the Cubs announced that they've signed pitcher Tyler Chatwood to a three-year deal through the 2020 season. He's spent his last six big league seasons in Colorado after debuting in 2011 with the Los Angeles Angels.

It was no secret the Chicago Cubs would need to add rotation help this offseason. The three-year deal is reportedly worth roughly $40 million, according to the MLB Network.


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.

Tyler Chatwood is getting a fresh start in the Windy City. He projects as a back-of-the-rotation starter for the Cubs, who lost Jake Arietta and John Lackey to free agency. He registered a 6.01 ERA and allowed foes to hit.302 at Coors Field last season. 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. Only three-time Cy Young Award victor Clayton Kershaw (2.16) has a better road mark during that span. The Angels selected him in the second round of the 2008 amateur draft. Chicago also is waiting to see if Japanese two-way player Shohei Ohtani picks the Cubs, who are one of the seven finalists.
