Profile: Chatwood had an impressive return from Tommy John surgery, all things considered. Chief among those things being that the bar for “impressive” isn’t particularly high for him. The former first round pick has been fighting an uphill battle since being dealt from the Angels to the Rockies back in 2012. Obviously, most pitchers are negatively impacted by a shift to Coors Field, but it’s particularly painful for someone like Chatwood who relies so heavily on contact-based outs to succeed. Thus, it’s no wonder that he has been markedly better on the road throughout his career with nearly a two-run split in earned run average. He had an impossibly wide gap in performance this past season considering his base skills were identical, but his home 6.12 ERA and 1.64 WHIP came with a .339 batting average on balls in play and 1.3 homer rate while his road 1.69 ERA and 1.11 WHIP were paired with a .228 BABIP and 0.5 HR/9. He maintained a rather poor 1.7 strikeout-to-walk ratio regardless of venue. Chatwood might not be quite as bad as his home results suggest, but he’s unequivocally nowhere near as good as the road work. He can be ignored at the draft table.(Paul Sporer)

The Quick Opinion: When everything goes his way, Chatwood can put up some results on the road, but his skills profile says he is a mid-4.00s ERA arm at best. There is some deep league spot start potential in great road matchups, but that’s a pretty niche fantasy profile.
