Meet Tyler Chatwood, The Newest Chicago Cub

The Chicago Cubs have agreed to terms with SP Tyler Chatwood on a 3 year, $38 million deal.  Chatwood is a 27 year old pitcher that has spent the past 6 seasons with the Colorado Rockies.

Welcome to Chicago, Tyler!  The rotation was obviously a need for the Cubs this offseason and WE HAVE FOUND OUR ANSWER!  Maybe not…. but Chatwood is a solid piece.  At first glance, his numbers do not look too hot…

But if you forgot, numbers in Colorado will always favor the hitter.  Chatwood’s home numbers made his ERA skyrocket last season.  Here are his splits:

So, as expected, his numbers at Coors Field suck.  Everyone’s ERA sucks in Colorado.  But away from the Rocky Mountains he has some solid ass numbers.  They speak for themselves and I for one, am pretty excited to add some depth to the rotation this early in free agency.
