Tyler Cole Chatwood (born December 16, 1989) is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Colorado Rockies of Major League Baseball (MLB). He has also pitched in MLB for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Professional career

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

Chatwood was drafted by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in the second round of the 2008 Major League Baseball Draft out of Redlands East Valley High School.[1]

Chatwood made his major league debut on April 11, 2011 in a loss against the Cleveland Indians where he went five innings, giving up four runs on four hits with three strikeouts and four walks.[2] In his second start against the Chicago White Sox he earned his first major league win, pitching seven innings, only giving up one run on five hits and two walks while striking out three. Chatwood remained in the rotation for most of the season, making 25 starts for the Angels. His hits allowed and inability to control his pitches led to him finishing with an ERA of 4.75 and a 6-11 record.

Colorado Rockies

On November 30, 2011, Chatwood was traded to the Colorado Rockies for catcher Chris Iannetta.[3]

Chatwood began the 2012 season in the Rockies bullpen, appearing in 4 games while recording 1 save. At the beginning of August, Chatwood was inserted in the rotation. He finished with a record of 5-6 with a 5.43 ERA in 19 games (12 starts).

In 2013, Chatwood had his best season despite missing half the season because of injury. Chatwood made 20 starts, going 8-5 with a 3.15 ERA and inducing a over 50% groundball rate for the Rockies.

In July 2014, Chatwood underwent Tommy John surgery to repair the ulnar collateral ligament of the elbow in his pitching arm, ending his season after just 4 starts.[4] He signed a two-year, $2 million extension with the Rockies on January 14, 2015.[5]
