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 has missed all of September with a strained right forearm. His arm had previously not been responding well after he began his throwing program, but the Cubs are seemingly still holding out hope that he could play a role in the postseason.
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.
Chatwood was removed during the third inning of Sunday's start against the Reds with an apparent injury, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
The right-hander spiked a breaking ball with one out and immediately called the athletic trainer to the mound. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but it looked to potentially be an arm or hand issue. The Cubs should update his status later in the day.
Chatwood (2-2) lasted just 1.1 innings and took the loss Tuesday against the Tigers. He allowed two runs on three hits and five walks while striking out two.
Chatwood wasn't expected to pitch particularly deep into his first start since Aug. 6 due to a back injury, but the team likely wanted him to retire more than four batters. The righty was simply all over the place with the five walks, which surpassed his season total of four coming into the night. When Chatwood has struggled in past seasons, free passes have been a big part of the issue, so he'll need to exhibit better command and control moving forward if he wants to get back to the form that left him with a 0.71 ERA through his first two starts of the year. He'll now carry a 6.06 ERA into his next outing, which is scheduled for Sunday against the Reds.
Chatwood (back) was activated ahead of his start Tuesday against the Tigers, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
Chatwood last gave up eight earned runs in 2.1 innings Aug. 6 against the Royals after being dominant in his first two starts of the season. Jose Quintana (thumb), who was also activated, could piggyback Chatwood in this outing.
Chatwood (back) will be activated from the IL to start Tuesday against the Tigers, Gordon Wittenmyer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
A back injury forced Chatwood to the injured list earlier this month, and while he has been cleared to toe the rubber Tuesday, he may not be available for a full starter's workload right off the bat. Jose Quintana (finger) will also be activated Tuesday and begin his season in the Cubs' bullpen. Chatwood got off to a great start with a 19:4 K:BB in his first two outings, but his eight-run blowup Aug. 6 against Kansas City was a reminder of the kind of downside he brings to the table.
Chatwood (back) completed a successful bullpen session Saturday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Chatwood has seemingly moved past the back tightness that resulted in him being scratched ahead of his Aug. 14 start against the Brewers and then placed on the 10-day injured list two days later. The right-hander could be activated and returned to the Chicago rotation as soon as Tuesday's game in Detroit. Jose Quintana (thumb) is also on track to return from the 10-day injured list, so he could be an option for Tuesday's start if the Cubs want to give Chatwood some additional time to ramp up.
Chatwood (back) visited a back specialist and is playing long toss Friday, Russell Dorsey of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
The diagnosis from the specialist remains unclear, but the fact the right-hander continues to throw is a positive sign. Chatwood will progress to a bullpen session Saturday if all goes well.
The Cubs placed Chatwood (back) on the 10-day injured list Sunday, Patrick Mooney of The Athletic reports.
Mid-back tightness prevented Chatwood from making his scheduled start Friday against the Brewers, but he was able to play catch Saturday and was expected to be ready to pitch in the first game of Monday's doubleheader with the Cardinals. The Cubs evidently didn't feel Chatwood was in fair enough condition after re-evaluating him Sunday, however, so the right-hander will now miss at least one or two more turns through the rotation while he recovers from the injury. Jose Quintana (thumb) could return from the IL later in the week to take Chatwood's spot in the rotation, but the Cubs will still require a replacement starter for him during one half of Monday's doubleheader. Kyle Hendricks will now take the hill for the first game of the twin bill, but manager David Ross hasn't announced a starter for the second contest.
Chatwood (back) feels good and is scheduled to start one of the Cubs' doubleheader games against the Cardinals on Monday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
Just one day after being scratched from his scheduled start with mid-back tightness, Chatwood played catch on the field and reportedly felt good afterward. Assuming Chatwood doesn't experience any setbacks, manager David Ross said that he'll send the pitcher out to the mound Monday.
Chatwood (back) was seen playing catch in left field with the Cubs' athletic trainer ahead of Saturday's game against the Brewers, Jordan Bastian of MLB.comn reports.
Chatwood was scratched from a start Friday after experiencing some mid-back tightness. David Ross stated that the 30-year-old righty could make his next start as soon as Monday depending on how he feels. It's still too early to tell whether Chatwood will end up taking the mound in a few days, but the fact that he's already throwing a day after experiencing some pain is a positive sign he's making progress.
Chatwood (back) could return to the mound as early as Monday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
Chatwood was scratched from his scheduled start Friday with mid-back tightness, but manager David Ross said that the team will see how he feels in the coming days. If he feels good, there's a chance that he could start as early as Monday against the Cardinals. Colin Rea will step in to start Saturday against the Brewers after Alec Mills started in Chatwood's place Friday.
Chatwood was scratched from his scheduled start Friday against the Brewers due to mid-back tightness, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
It's unclear whether or not the back issue was partially to blame for Chatwood's struggles in his previous start, where he allowed eight runs while recording just seven outs against the Royals. Alec Mills, who had been scheduled to start Saturday, will move up to start Friday in his absence.
Chatwood (2-1) took the loss against Kansas City on Thursday, tossing 2.1 innings and allowing eight runs on 11 hits while striking out four.
Chatwood looked great in picking up wins in each of his first two starts this season, but he was run over by the Royals on Thursday. The right-hander gave up a run in the first inning and two in the second, then imploded by yielding five consecutive hits -- four of which went for extra bases -- before being pulled with one out in the third. By the time the wreckage was cleared, Chatwood had been charged with eight earned runs to inflate his season ERA from 0.71 to 5.40. The right-hander will try to bounce back when he faces Cleveland on the road Wednesday in his next scheduled start.
