Chatwood (elbow) tossed a 40-pitch bullpen session Sunday, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

Chatwood threw a mix of fastballs, changeups, and curveballs during the workout, and seems to be making positive progress from his second Tommy John operation. The 25-year-old is probably further along in his recovery than the Rockies expected at this point, creating the possibility that he might return before season's end.

Chatwood (elbow) will begin throwing breaking balls off of a mound next week, Nick Groke of the Denver Post reports.

Rather than making a late-season return to the mound after undergoing Tommy John surgery last July, at this stage, Chatwood's focus seems to be just clearing each successive hurdle in the recovery process. Throwing breaking balls would represent another advancement in that regard, but it's still unlikely that we'll see him face hitters until at least a month from now.

Chatwood (elbow) has been placed on the 60-day DL.

This is a formality to open a roster spot for John Axford, as it wasn't like Chatwood was returning from Tommy John surgery any time soon. He's still likely a planned part of Colorado's future and could be a decent bounce-back candidate in 2016.

Chatwood (elbow) agreed to a two-year, $2 million contract with the Rockies last week to avoid arbitration, MLB.com's Thomas Harding reports.

It's effectively a one-year, $2 million deal with performance bonuses up to $250,000 for Chatwood, who is expected to miss the entire 2015 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery last July. Chatwood showcased some promise as a 23-year-old in the 2013 campaign, posting a 3.15 ERA over 111.1, but his future is on shaky ground as he prepares to return from the second elbow operation of his brief career.

Chatwood was reinstated from the 60-day disabled list Monday.

Chatwood needed to be awarded a roster spot in the offseason as the 60-day disabled list becomes void at two PM following the fifth day after the World Series. The team cleared space for Chatwood, and he has now been moved back to the 40-man but will likely begin the season on the 60-day DL as he works his way back from Tommy John surgery.
