Chatwood (3-2) allowed no runs on five hits and three walks while striking out four over 6.1 innings to earn the win Friday at the Diamondbacks.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Chatwood was provided with plenty of run support while he was busy blanking the Diamondbacks until his exit in the seventh inning. He's been amazing in his three starts on the road as he's allowed one earned run over 19.2 innings of work. On the season he has an ERA of 2.73 to go along with a 1.28 WHIP. He'll make his next start Wednesday at the Padres.

Chatwood will start Friday against the Diamondbacks.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Colorado's rotation will remain unchanged despite Thursday's rainout, with Chatwood, Chris Rusin and Chad Bettis starting this weekend in Arizona. Chatwood has a 7.20 ERA at home but has been far better in his two road starts to this point, allowing one earned run on nine hits and one walk while striking out 10 in 13.1 innings.

Chatwood was slated to take the hill Thursday against the Pirates, but the game has been rained out, Jenny Cavnar of Root Sports reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The Rockies are yet to comment on the situation, but as of now the most likely scenario is Chatwood being pushed back a day to start Friday's series opener against the Diamondbacks in Arizona. A makeup date for Thursday's contest has not been announced.

Chatwood dominated the Cubs in Sunday's start to the tune of seven shutout innings with seven strikeouts and just one walk. He earned his second win of the season.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The right-hander was shelled at Coors Field in his last start, but Sunday's excellent performance dropped his road ERA to 0.68 through two outings. The 26-year-old doesn't profile as an exceptional strikeout pitcher, so perspective owners should not expect returns similar to Sunday's in that regard, but his two walks through three outings indicate that his control is his biggest weapon at the moment. He will look to build off of this performance versus the Dodgers next Sunday.

Chatwood (1-1) took the loss Tuesday against the Giants as he allowed five runs on 11 hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out two.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Chatwood also served up a pair of home runs, to Hunter Pence and Trevor Brown, which accounted for four of the five runs charged to him. Chatwood induced 10 ground ball outs, but it wasn't enough, as the Giants continuously made hard contact against him. His ERA jumped to 4.38 as a result.

Chatwood was charged with two runs (one earned) on seven hits over 6.1 innings in a win over the Diamondbacks on Wednesday. He struck out three and did not issue a walk.

Competitive Edge Analysis

All seven hits against Chatwood were singles (two of the infield variety), as the right-hander outdueled Patrick Corbin in his first start since April 29, 2014. Chatwood missed all of last season while recovering from his second Tommy John surgery. The control he showed Wednesday was certainly encouraging, but Chatwood has averaged just over five strikeouts per nine innings in his major league career, and the workload is a big question mark.

Chatwood (elbow) threw three scoreless and hitless innings against the Mariners on Monday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

This was the 26-year-old's third appearance in Cactus League play, and he's been holding up very nicely. He commented that his elbow feels "normal and strong." His fastball was only sitting between 89 and 92 mph, but he attributes that to having undergone two Tommy John surgeries. The more important thing at this point is how good his command has been as he's been able to limit his WHIP this spring to 1.14 though seven spring innings. As long as he can stay healthy and maintain this strong showing, Chatwood could be in line for a spot in the Rockies rotation right out of the gate.

Chatwood pitched in an intrasquad game for the Rockies on Monday, the team's official site reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 26-year-old is making his way back from his second career Tommy John surgery, but he's expected to work his way into the competition for a rotation spot if he's completely healthy this spring. Chatwood may just four starts for Colorado in 2014 before hie hit the DL and ultimately required his second career UCL surgery.

Chatwood (elbow) will pitch in the Arizona instructional league and then the Dominican winter league, the Denver Post's Nick Groke reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 25-year-old righty figures to come into spring training with a shot at winning a spot in the rotation. He has made just seven professional starts since 2013, so sending him to get some work in this fall/winter makes a lot of sense.

Chatwood (elbow) made a three-inning appearance Thursday for Low-A Asheville and gave up two runs.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Chatwood tossed 42 pitches in what marked his fourth rehab outing as he works his way back from Tommy John surgery. Asheville ended up losing Tuesday and were eliminated from the South Atlantic League championship series, seemingly leaving Chatwood with no further opportunities to continue his rehab assignment in the minors. It's possible the Rockies will activate Chatwood from the 60-day DL and have him work out of the bullpen over the remaining two weeks of the season.
