Chatwood will pitch at Double-A Hartford on Monday, Nick Kosmider of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fortunately, it appears that Chatwood is on track to come off the DL in the near future. Colorado has yet to say how many rehab starts Chatwood will make, although it's known that he'll be limited to 75 pitches in Monday's outing. More information regarding his eventual return should be known after his upcoming outing.

Chatwood (back) was placed on the 15-day DL, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Chatwood's injury hasn't been diagnosed, so a timeframe for his return is unavailable at this point in time. The club has recalled Christian Bergman from Triple-A Albuquerque to fill the empty roster spot for the time being.

Chatwood exited Sunday's start early due to back spasms, the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Chatwood first felt the pain during the first inning and said the muscle remained tight until he left in the fourth. He missed two starts due to back spasms earlier this year, but said he didn't "think it was anything serious." Chatwood will undergo treatment Monday, and his response will likely determine his status for his next scheduled start Saturday against the Cubs. Consider him day-to-day for now.

Chatwood left Sunday's start after four-plus innings (92 pitches), but it's unclear if his withdrawal is injury-related, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Team trainers came out to check on Chatwood earlier in the fifth inning, but he was successful in his pleas to remain in the contest. He later needed to be pulled, but it's unclear if that was due to health or performance reasons. He had surrendered three earned runs at the time, but that total would later increase after Jordan Lyles allowed an inherited runner to score. He'll finish the outing with four earned runs on six hits and five walks with four strikeouts. Chatwood dealt with back spasms earlier in the year, so his progress is certainly worth monitoring heading into his next scheduled start.

Chatwood (10-7) allowed two runs on five hits while striking out eight over 6.2 innings, but received no decision Tuesday against the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

Chatwood left the contest with a 5-1 lead, but the bullpen fell apart and kept him from potentially winning his 11th decision of 2016. He's been pitching well lately, as he's allowed two or fewer earned runs in three of his last four outings to lower his ERA to 3.58 on the campaign. This is the second time in three years that the righty has kept his ERA in the threes, which is excellent for a Rockies' pitcher. He'll make his next start Sunday against the Phillies.

Chatwood (10-7) gave up four runs on nine hits and three walks while striking out six in Thursday's home loss to the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Chatwood's fantasy owners should already be aware of the canyon-like difference between his home and road splits, as Coors Field is rarely a good place to roll out a fantasy starter. The 26-year-old righty's road work has been sparkling, as he owns a 1.30 ERA and 1.01 WHIP, but he's probably due some regression all around thanks to a 76:53 K:BB that simply doesn't match up with his 3.63 ERA. Don't be surprised if the combination of regression and Coors pushes his ERA up over 4.00 before the season's done.

Chatwood (10-6) allowed just one run on three hits in seven innings Friday against the Mets. He walked four and struck out four in the win.

EDGE Analysis

Chatwood continued to be flawless on the road, extending his record to 6-0 away from Coors Field this season. Friday's second-inning home run given up to James Loney was the first Chatwood has allowed on the road in 2016. At home, the 26-year-old right-hander is 4-6 with a 5.69 ERA and seven home runs allowed. Unfortunately for Chatwood and his fantasy owners, his next start Thursday is at home against the Dodgers, so projecting another solid performance is questionable at best.

Chatwood struck out six and walked eight across five shutout innings Sunday versus the Braves, earning his ninth win of the season.

EDGE Analysis

It was an unconventional start for Chatwood, who only allowed one hit but was pulled after five frames due to his elevated pitch count. Chatwood had endured a couple of rough starts heading into Sunday, so it was a positive sign to see him bounce back at home, despite the slightly alarming command lack of command. He has generally been a stable member of the Rockies rotation this season and will take a 3.65 ERA into Friday's start at the Mets.

Chatwood (8-6) allowed seven runs on eight hits and two walks with one strikeout in just three innings in a loss Tuesday to the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

Another start at home, another drubbing. Chatwood has still given up at least three runs in all but one of his home starts. Chatwood's season continues to be a tale of two different pitchers. He has a brilliant 1.89 ERA on the road, but his home ERA is now up to 6.26.

Chatwood (8-5) gave up four earned runs on eight hits and three walks over five innings in Sunday's 10-3 loss to the Phillies. He struck out two.

EDGE Analysis

The 26-year-old pitched to contact, notching only five swinging strikes out of the 55 he was credited with on the afternoon. Chatwood was essentially singled to death during his time on the mound, as Cody Asche and Cameron Rupp drove in all four runs against him with RBI hits in the third and fifth innings. Four of Chatwood's five losses have come at Coors Field this season, and he's posted an ERA well over three runs higher at home as well. Despite the struggles, his overall 3.29 ERA is certainly admirable figure for a Rockies pitcher, and he'll look to set a new career high of nine victories in his first post-All-Star break start.
