Cubs bolster rotation by signing RHP Tyler Chatwood to 3-year deal

The former Rockies right-hander signed a three-year, free-agent contract with the Chicago Cubs Thursday. He's spent his last six big league seasons in Colorado after debuting in 2011 with the Los Angeles Angels.

The Chicago Cubs have made a move in the 2017 MLB Offseason.

Far Cry 5, The Crew 2 Delayed
Far Cry 5 will now release on March 27th, 2018 , one month later than its previously detailed February 27th, 2018 release. The Crew 2 will now be released in the "first half of Fiscal 2018-19", instead of March 16th, 2018.

Chatwood would make roughly $12.67 million per season, which may seem high but with the skyrocketing price of pitching, $38 million guaranteed for a guy who is just entering his prime and is a legit breakout candidate could potentially be a steal. His curveball spin rate, a skill teams are seeking out these days, was among the best in baseball the last two years.

The Cubs' primary goal this offseason is to find replacements for starters Jake Arrieta and John Lackey, who both filed for free agency. Pitching half his games at Coors Field, Chatwood actually has performed quite well but does come with some questions about how many innings he can pitch.

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

Chatwood missed all of 2015 because of Tommy John surgery but is tied with Stephen Strasburg of the Nationals for second in the National League in road ERA the last two seasons (2.57). 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.
