Chicago Cubs agree to deal with Tyler Chatwood

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.

A six-year Major League Baseball veteran, Chatwood spent the past five years with the Colorado Rockies. He's spent his last six big league seasons in Colorado after debuting in 2011 with the Los Angeles Angels. But when you look at his numbers away from Coors Field, he's not too much of a step down.

Chatwood would make roughly $12.67 million per season, which may seem high but with the skyrocketing price of pitching, $38 million guaranteed for a guy who is just entering his prime and is a legit breakout candidate could potentially be a steal. He registered a 6.01 ERA and allowed foes to hit.302 at Coors Field last season.

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.

Chatwood has a career 4.31 ERA and 1.49 WHIP.

He will fit in the back end of the rotation behind Jon Lester, Kyle Hendricks and Jose Quintana.

The Cubs continue to be a leading suitor to land free-agent right-hander Alex Cobb, and they're one of seven finalists for Shohei Ohtani, the 23-year-old Japanses phenom who pitches and plays outfield.
