Tyler Chatwood SP COL 2 weeks ago

Chatwood (elbow) is on a prescribed 10-day rest period before returning to the Rockies' spring training facility, MLB.com reports.

Chatwood is expected to miss the majority of the season, if not all of it. His next step is to start throwing breaking pitches, then face live hitters in batting practice.

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.

Tyler Chatwood needs Tommy John elbow surgery.

Chatwood was placed on the disabled list at the end of April with a right elbow strain and didn't make very much progress in his attempt at rehabbing the injury. The 24-year-old right-hander is done for the remainder of the 2014 season and will miss a large majority of 2015. He had a promising 3.15 ERA in 20 starts for Colorado last year.

Tyler Chatwood (elbow) was set to throw live batting practice on Wednesday but was shut down after throwing just a few pitches.

It's obviously not a good sign for the right-hander, who hasn't pitched since April 29. It's also not the first time he's had a setback during his recovery -- he previously felt some forearm tightness during a batting practice session in late June. There's no indication of what Wednesday's development means for Chatwood's timetable, but it's fair to say he remains out indefinitely.

Tyler Chatwood (elbow) felt tightness in his right forearm following a live batting practice session Tuesday.

Well, that's not a good sign. Chatwood has been on the shelf since late April with a flexor strain and inflammation in his right elbow, and it doesn't sound like he's fully healed yet. It's not clear if he'll undergo further testing, but at the very least the Rockies will slow Chatwood down a bit.

Tyler Chatwood (elbow) played catch from 75 feet for the fourth straight day Tuesday.

He'll take a couple days off before resuming throwing. It's not clear at this point when Chatwood will be ready for mound work, as the Rockies are taking things slowly with the righty as he comes back from a strained flexor tendon. He's not eligible to return until late June.
