The Chicago Cubs will hope for a bounce-back season from Tyler Chatwood after the two sides reportedly agreed to a three-year deal Thursday.
Chatwood, who turns 28 next week, was 8-15 with a 4.69 ERA in 33 appearances, including 25 starts, for Colorado previous year. Chatwood missed much of 2014 and the entire 2015 after undergoing Tommy John surgery. In 2017 he was 8-15 with a 4.69 ERA and 120 strikeouts.
GE cutting 12K jobs from Power unit to reduce structural costs
D-E Shaw & Company Inc decreased Bhp Billiton Ltd (Put) (NYSE:BHP) stake by 22,000 shares to 20,000 valued at $712,000 in 2017Q2. The ERP5 of American Electric Power Company, Inc . (NYSE: AEP ) higher to the next line of resistance at $78.44 a share.
Chatwood's best season was 2013, when he had a 3.15 ERA in 20 starts. Factoring in ballpark and season, Chatwood still finished last season with an above-average ERA+ of 107, per Baseball Reference. He figures to slot into the rotation behind Jon Lester, Kyle Hendricks and Jose Quintana.
Granted, Chatwood has a combined 23 quality starts over the past two seasons, but Chicago has established enough of a winning culture in the last three years that positive results will be expected immediately. Mike Montgomery presumably will also be up for a starting role, and the Cubs could still look to add another hurler to the mix, as they recently had a meeting with high-profile free agent Shohei Otani and have had reported interest in Tampa Bay Rays hurler Alex Cobb. They had few holes to fill, a winning core, and certainly didn't need to spend money on a mid-level arm to stay in contention in the NL Central.
