The Cubs have signed a pitcher, but not the one that's been dominating the last 11 news cycles (.yet?).
Chicago has signed right-hander Tyler Chatwood to a three-year deal, the team announced Thursday afternoon.
A six-year Major League Baseball veteran, Chatwood spent the past five years with the Colorado Rockies. This makes sense as Lackey is 39 years old and was 12-12 with a 4.59 ERA last season.
Chatwood's best season was 2016 when he finished 12-9 with a 3.87 ERA in a career-high 27 starts with the Rockies, including an 8-1 mark and 1.69 ERA on the road.Читайте также: Two rockets fired on Israel land in Gaza
More runs were scored at Coors Field than any other park in 2017, per ESPN.
The Cubs have rotation slots filled by Jon Lester, Kyle Hendricks and Jose Quintana. He's spent his last six big league seasons in Colorado after debuting in 2011 with the Los Angeles Angels. The Cubs will need him to provide consistency and plenty of quality starts in 2018, a tall order for someone who has always pitched from the middle to the back end of the rotation. The three-year deal is reportedly worth roughly $40 million, according to the MLB Network.
Tyler Chatwood is getting a fresh start in the Windy City. 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.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
