Chatwood's season is in jeopardy after his strained forearm didn't respond well to his throwing program, Russell Dorsey of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Chatwood was attempting to make it back before the end of the season from a forearm issue he suffered back in late August. His chances of doing so now appear to be quite small, though he hasn't officially been ruled out for the year.
Cubs manager David Ross said Chatwood (forearm) will begin a throwing program Monday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports. One of two back-end rotation candidates on the injured list, Chatwood looks to be slightly ahead of Jose Quintana (lat) in his rehab program, as Quintana isn't expected to throw until Tuesday. The Cubs will likely have a starting spot available for only one of the two pitchers when both are ready to return, so Chatwood's rest-of-season fantasy outlook is still fairly murky. Prior to getting shut down with the right forearm strain, Chatwood supplied a 5.30 ERA, 1.66 WHIP and 25:9 K:BB in 18.2 innings over his five starts.
Chatwood was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right forearm strain Tuesday. Chatwood underwent an MRI on Monday that revealed a right forearm strain. He'll officially head to the 10-day injured list, but he'll likely be out beyond 10 days. General manager Jed Hoyer was optimistic that the right-hander could return prior to the end of the season.
Chatwood (elbow) will be placed on the 10-day injured list, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Chatwood underwent an MRI on Monday after leaving Sunday's game with right elbow discomfort. The team is still waiting on the results, but manager Jed Hoyer said that the results revealed "largely good news." He'll spend some time on the injured list, although Hoyer was hopeful that he could return prior to the end of the season. Jose Quintana should fill his role in the starting rotation going forward.
Chatwood was removed from Sunday's game against the Reds with right elbow discomfort, Maddie Lee of NBC Sports Chicago reports. The 30-year-old suffered the injury during the third inning when he spiked a pitch well in front of the plate. He didn't allow a run over 2.1 innings before exiting the contest. Chatwood doesn't have a timeline for his return but will be further evaluated Monday. Jose Quintana is likely to enter the starting rotation should Chatwood miss any time.
