Cubs sign Tyler Chatwood to three-year deal

Chatwood signs 3-year deal with Cubs

Right-hander Tyler Chatwood agreed to a three-year, $38 million deal with the Chicago Cubs, the team announced Thursday.

A six-year Major League Baseball veteran, Chatwood spent the past five years with the Colorado Rockies.

Chatwood provides the Cubs with insurance for their rotation, as starting pitchers Jake Arrieta and John Lackey are both free agents this offseason.

Her cause of death was unlisted by the coroner, but her pals believe Ames - who suffered from depression - took her own life. Upon learning of her death, fellow adult entertainers took to social media to express their shock and sorrow.

Chatwood has had success at Wrigley Field. He registered a 6.01 ERA and allowed foes to hit.302 at Coors Field last season. With a 3.49 ERA on the road, there is plenty of reason to expect better numbers in a new location. Across the 2016 and 2017 seasons, Chatwood has a 2.57 ERA on the road, which tied for the second-best mark in the National League for those with a minimum of 10 starts.

Chatwood made four starts in 2014, then underwent Tommy John surgery and missed the "15 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. For his career, which included his first season with the Angels, Chatwood is 40-46 with a 4.31 ERA. Montgomery had a 4.15 ERA as a starter and a 2.49 ERA as a relief pitcher past year.
