Club confirmed that the Cubs have signed RHP Tyler Chatwood to a 3-year deal.
Chatwood went 8-15 with a 4.69 ERA in Colorado last season. The obvious thing is that Chatwood played at Coors field. We all know what happens there. Away from Coors, Chatwood posted a 3.49 ERA and 1.228 WHIP in 77 1/3 innings last season.
It seems like the Cubs FO has been interested in this guy since the start of the offseason. He’s still young being only 27 but, he’s been in the league 6 years. He still has potential and maybe Theo may have found a bargain for him. Not an Ohtani sign of course. What does this mean for the rest of the Cubs’ offseason though? We’ll see.
