Chatwood continues to shine in Cactus League action, sporting a 2.84 ERA with a 19:5 K:BB in 19 spring innings, and will be a member of the Rockies' rotation this season.

EDGE Analysis

Between his dominant performance this spring and the plethora of injuries that have struck the Rockies pitching staff over the past few weeks, Chatty is a lock to be the third starter behind Jon Gray (foot) and Tyler Anderson. Chatwood's biggest flaw last season was his inability to find success at Coors Field (6.12 ERA, 1.64 WHIP at home), but the uptick in strikeouts and improvement in control could help to level his gaudy home/road splits during the upcoming campaign. His injury history doesn't work in his favor, but he's worth a late-round draft pick even in mixed leagues if he can continue to flash brilliance like he did away from Denver last season (1.69 ERA, 1.11 WHIP on the road).

Chatwood started three games so far this spring, allowing three runs on eight hits while striking out seven batters and walking two.

EDGE Analysis

Chatty's excellent results on the road last season had him nearly locked in to a rotation spot this season, but the injuries to both Chris Rusin (oblique) and Chad Bettis (illness) have made the 27-year-old an integral part of Colorado's staff. His spring performance has been solid thus far, although the two home runs he's already yielded are a bit concerning given he'll be pitching half his games in Coors Field. This seems like more of a fluke than anything, however, as his groundball/flyball ratio has consistently sat well above 2.00 over his past four seasons in the big leagues. Chatwood will need to prove that he can maintain his effectiveness over the entire course of the season though, as he petered out toward the end of last season and gave up more than one home run per nine innings.

Chatwood and the Rockies avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $4.4 million contract Friday, MLB.com's Thomas Harding reports.

EDGE Analysis

Chatwood started a career-high 27 games for the Rockies last year, and while he struggled at Coors Field like many pitchers do, he did post a tidy 1.69 ERA over 13 road starts. It remains to be seen exactly where he will slot in, but he will head into this season with a spot in the team's rotation. He finished 2016 with a respectable 12 wins and 3.87 ERA, and another effective campaign would help him as he heads into free agency next offseason.

Chatwood (12-9) dominated the Giants over eight shutout innings Wednesday night, striking out nine while allowing just three singles and two walks.

EDGE Analysis

That's a heck of an impressive way to end your season -- this was Chatwood's biggest strikeout total of the year and arguably his best start, and it came against a Giants team that's desperately clinging to a wild-card spot. Chatwood wraps things up with a 3.87 ERA and 1.37 WHIP, but most of the damage against him came at Coors Field; on the road, he posted a sick 1.69 ERA and 1.11 WHIP, albeit with an unimpressive 61:36 K:BB.

Chatwood allowed our runs on nine hits and four walks while striking out five across six innings Thursday versus the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Chatwood struggled with his command Thursday, throwing just 54 percent of his pitches for strikes, but he was in line for a win when he departed the game, before a bullpen implosion. Chatwood's splits are among the widest in baseball as far as starting pitcher are concerned, as Thursday's outing brought his road ERA to a sterling 1.88; compared to an inflated 6.12 at Coors Field. He will have the opportunity to finish the season on a high note Thursday in San Francisco.

Chatwood was shelled in Friday's start versus the Padres, allowing seven runs on eight hits and two walks across five innings. He struck out seven and did not factor into the decision.

EDGE Analysis

Chatwood pitched quite well against this same club just a week ago, but the thin air at Coors Field was unforgiving Friday, as he allowed four extra-base hits, including a solo home run to Luis Sardinas that chased him from the game with no outs in the sixth. Chatwood's ERA has risen to 4.13 and he will look to achieve a better result next time out, Thursday versus the Dodgers.

Chatwood (11-9) allowed just one run on five hits, struck out five and walked three over 6.2 innings in a victory over the Padres on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander bounced back from his rough return from the disabled list last week to only yield one run, which came on a solo bomb in the second. Chatwood is now 11-9 with a 3.82 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 96 strikeouts in 139 innings this season. His next start will be Friday against San Diego again.

Chatwood (10-9) received the loss Saturday night against Arizona, surrendering six runs (five earned) on seven hits, while walking one and striking out three over five innings.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander looked to start the last month of the season on the right foot in his first outing since giving up six runs (four earned) and five walks in Philly on August 14, but he showed us much of the same, unravelling in a five-run third as he loaded the bases and surrendered two hard-hit balls -- a bases-clearing double to Welington Castillo, followed by a two-run Jake Lamb bomb -- to put the game out of reach. He'll have a chance to get back on track, taking his 3.94 ERA into his next start against San Diego.

Chatwood (back) was activated from the disabled list Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Chatwood is set to take the mound for the first time since August 14 when the Rockies face the Diamondbacks on Saturday. Before being placed on the DL, Chatwood had put together a 3.75 ERA and 1.39 WHIP over 22 starts.

Chatwood (back) is lined up to start Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks, the Denver Post's Patrick Saunders reports.

EDGE Analysis

He threw 73 pitches (40 for strikes) in Monday's rehab start with Double-A Hartford, allowing zero earned runs on four hits and a walk while striking out three over 4.1 innings. His return to the Rockies' rotation will either mean the team will go with a six-man rotation the rest of the way or someone will get bumped.
