Grading the Tyler Chatwood signing

Grading the Tyler Chatwood signing

The Chicago Cubs have been linked with some high-profile free agents on the pitching market, and they've finally made their first splash as they signed Tyler Chatwood to a three-year deal.

Chatwood doesn't turn 28 until next Saturday and has spent the last seven years pitching for the Colorado Rockies and Los Angeles Angels. He posted an excellent groundball rate (GB%) of 58.1% and saw his fastball velocity increase.

Chatwood sported a 6.01 ERA and 1.68 WHIP at hitter-friendly Coors Field a year ago, but his numbers on the road indicate the Cubs may have acquired a nice under-the-radar starting pitcher: 3.49 ERA, 1.23 WHIP.

Nokia 9 And Nokia 8 (2018) To Be Launched On 19th January
HMD Global is planning to launch the Nokia 9 very soon, as early as January 2018, according to sources. But it won't be alone it seems, as there are also plans to launch a re-booted Nokia 8 alongside.

Given the money involved in the deal, it's likely Chatwood will take over the rotation spot once occupied by veteran John Lackey. In 2017 he was 8-15 with a 4.69 ERA and 120 strikeouts.

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

Not only that, but Chatwood is moving from a team on the up-and-up to one ready to win now.

Germany: More than 40 injured in train crash
An estimated 50 people have been injured after a passenger train and freight train smashed into each other. A police spokesman told BILD: "Currently we cannot say how many injured it is".

It was no secret the Chicago Cubs would need to add rotation help this offseason.

Chatwood is tied with Nationals ace Stephen Strasburg for second in the National League in road ERA over the last two season with a 2.57 mark.

The Cubs have signed a pitcher, but not the one that's been dominating the last 11 news cycles (.yet?). Chatwood missed much of 2014 and the entire 2015 after undergoing Tommy John surgery.
