Tyler Chatwood, Chicago Cubs agree to 3-year, $38 million deal

Right-handed pitcher Tyler Chatwood - not Shohei Ohtani - solidified his future by inking a three-year deal with the Cubs Thursday afternoon.

Chatwood, who turns 28 next week, was 8-15 with a 4.69 ERA in 33 appearances, including 25 starts, for Colorado past year.

The deal will keep Chatwood at Wrigley Field until the next decade, which is a good move for Chicago since they're certainly losing Jake Arrieta to free agency and needed to replace him with someone of the same caliber.

More runs were scored at Coors Field than any other park in 2017, per ESPN. With a 3.49 ERA on the road, there is plenty of reason to expect better numbers in a new location.

Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Tyler Chatwood throws to a Miami Marlins batter during the first inning of a baseball game Monday, Sept. 25, 2017, in Denver. Since returning from his second career Tommy John surgery in 2016, he threw 305 2/3 innings with a 4.27 ERA (115 ERA+) for the Rockies. By comparison, Chatwood owned a 5-7 mark with a 3.49 ERA in 16 games on the road. He is 40-46 with a 4.31 ERA over six seasons with the Los Angeles Angels (2011) and Rockies (2012-14, 2016-17).

Chatwood will join Jon Lester, Kyle Hendricks, and Jose Quintana in the team's rotation.
