Chatwood was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with a neck strain, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
The righty allowed a pair of runs on two hits and two walks while pitching just two-thirds of an inning Thursday against Seattle. After stringing together eight consecutive scoreless appearances, Chatwood has now yielded five runs over his last two games and has a 5.46 ERA on the season. It's unclear how long the righty will be sidelined with the neck strain. Anthony Castro and Nick Allgeyer were recalled to round out the bullpen in Chatwood's absence.
Chatwood allowed no hits and a walk in a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save against the Orioles on Sunday.
Chatwood failed to record a strikeout in Sunday's appearance, but he preserved Toronto's three-run lead to earn his first save of 2021. The right-hander has worked mainly as a setup man to begin the season, as he's recorded nine holds with a 4.32 ERA and 1.32 WHIP in 25 innings.
Chatwood (0-2) lost Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader, allowing two runs on one hit and five walks in 1.1 innings of in a 6-5 defeat to Cleveland.

Chatwood (0-1) was tagged with the loss Sunday against the Rays after giving up four runs on two hits and two walks over two-thirds of an inning.
Chatwood had been dominant of late and had recorded seven straight scoreless appearances before melting down Sunday, as he had major issues finding the strike zone and only tossed nine of his 22 pitches for strikes. He still owns a 2.55 ERA on the season, but there's no question he'd like to put this outing behind him as soon as possible.
Chatwood struck out four over 1.2 perfect innings of relief to record his third hold of the season in Tuesday's win over the Nationals.
All of the right-hander's holds have come in his last three appearances, as he's taken on a high-leverage role since returning from an IL stint due to triceps soreness. Chatwood has a 0.00 ERA and 9:2 K:BB through 6.1 innings to begin the season, but there's no indication as yet he could move into the saves mix.
Chatwood (triceps) was activated off the 10-day injured list Friday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Chatwood has missed over two weeks with right triceps soreness. He threw 2.2 scoreless innings over three appearances before landing on the injured list. Anthony Kay was optioned in a corresponding move.
Chatwood (triceps) will likely be activated from the 10-day injured list Friday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Chatwood has been on the injured list since April 9 due to right triceps soreness, but it appears he'll be available in time for Friday's series opener in Tampa Bay.

Chatwood (triceps) played catch Tuesday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.
He's on the shelf with right triceps soreness and has no timetable to return. The next steps would seemingly be bullpen sessions followed by live batting practice.
Chatwood was placed on the 10-day injured list due to right triceps soreness Friday, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports.
Chatwood made three relief appearances to begin the season and allowed four hits and a walk while striking out three in 2.2 scoreless innings. However, he hadn't pitched since Monday and will now miss time due to a triceps issue. Manager Charlie Montoyo said Friday that he wasn't sure how much time Chatwood will miss, but he's optimistic that he'll be in line for a short-term absence. Joel Payamps and Ty Tice were recalled by the Blue Jays on Friday.
Chatwood has posted a 2.35 ERA and 6:1 K:BB over 7.2 Grapefruit League innings.
The right-hander has been a starting pitcher most of his career, but after coming over from the Cubs in the offseason, Chatwood has been converted to a full-time relief role by the Jays. With Kirby Yates (elbow) out of the picture, Chatwood could find himself seeing plenty of high-leverage work alongside Jordan Romano and Rafael Dolis.
Chatwood has been told to prepare for a high-leverage relief role this season, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Chatwood has been a starter in 143 of his 197 big-league appearances to date, with the majority of his relief outings coming in 2019. His strikeout rate out of the bullpen sits at 19.3 percent for his career, nearly three points better than his 16.5 percent mark as a starter though still hardly a typical mark for a high-leverage arm. It's certainly possible his stuff plays up now that he's fully dedicated to the role, but he's unlikely to seriously challenge Kirby Yates for saves and will likely be behind Jordan Romano and Rafael Dolis should Yates struggle or get injured.
Chatwood (forearm) signed a one-year, $3 million contract with the Blue Jays on Monday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
Chatwood will head to Toronto after spending the last three seasons with the Cubs. He finished with an ERA above 5.00 in two of his last three seasons with Chicago, starting 25 contests over that stretch. Chatwood is expected to be used out of the bullpen while in Toronto, per Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca, but he can also be used as a starter if needed. The deal could reach $5.5 million based on incentives.
Chatwood (forearm) will throw off a mound Tuesday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Chatwood faced a slight setback in the middle of September after his strained forearm didn't respond well to his throwing program. However, he threw a bullpen session Saturday and is expected to pitch off the mound once again Tuesday. It's still unknown whether the right-hander will be available for the Cubs during the postseason.
Chatwood (forearm) will throw a bullpen session Saturday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

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.

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.
