Pirates' Tyler Chatwood: Sent to minors camp
The Pirates reassigned Chatwood to minor-league camp Monday.
Chatwood will head to Triple-A Indianapolis after he struggled to a 16.20 ERA and 2.80 WHIP with four strikeouts over five innings in five appearances this spring. The right-hander tossed 32 innings as a reliever in 2022 with the Giants and Blue Jays, producing a 5.62 ERA and 1.47 WHIP with 38 punchouts. Chatwood will likely have to prove himself in Triple-A before he could get a shot in the majors this summer.... See More ... See Less
Pirates' Tyler Chatwood: Signs with Pirates
Chatwood signed a one-year, minor-league contract with the Pirates on Wednesday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
Chatwood will return to American baseball after spending the 2022 campaign in Japan with NPB's Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks, producing a 2.59 ERA and 1.60 WHIP with 18 strikeouts over 24.1 innings before going down with a shoulder injury. The right-hander last pitched in the big leagues in 2020 with the Cubs, struggling to a 5.30 ERA over five starts. Chatwood will likely begin the 2023 campaign with Triple-A Indianapolis, but he could find his way to the Pirates' rotation at some point if he pitches well.... See More ... See Less
Tyler Chatwood: Headed to Japan
Chatwood signed a contract with the NPB's Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks on Saturday, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.
Chatwood made 32 relief appearances for the Giants and Blue Jays in 2021 and posted a 5.63 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in 32 innings. He finished the season on the injured list for an unspecified reason, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him available to pitch in Japan to begin the 2022 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Tyler Chatwood: Lands on injured list
Chatwood was placed on the injured list for an undisclosed reason Friday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Chatwood was designated for assignment by the Giants at the end of August, and he went unclaimed on waivers. However, he'll be unavailable for now due to his placement on the injured list. It's not yet clear when the right-hander will be return to action, but he'll report to Triple-A Sacramento once he's healthy.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Tyler Chatwood: Cast off 40-man roster
Chatwood was designated for assignment by the Giants on Sunday.
Chatwood yielded five runs (three earned) in two innings in his Giants debut Aug. 18. He had one more scoreless two-inning appearance, but it wasn't enough to keep him on the 40-man roster.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Tyler Chatwood: Pummeled in Giants debut
Chatwood (1-3) surrendered five runs (three earned) on five hits with four strikeouts in two innings, taking the extra-innings loss versus the Mets on Wednesday.
After Anthony DeSclafani left Wednesday's game with an ankle injury, San Francisco was forced to deploy eight other pitchers. Chatwood was tasked with the 11th and 12th innings. He got away with allowing a run in his first inning of work, but Kevin Pillar took him deep for a three-run home run and Chance Sisco added an RBI double that proved enough to spoil Chatwood's Giants debut. The right-hander has an ugly 6.00 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 36:20 K:BB across 30 innings this season, and he's unlikely to see anything more than low-leverage work with his new team.... See More ...

Giants' Tyler Chatwood: Contract selected by Giants
Chatwood had his contract selected by the Giants on Tuesday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
Chatwood reached a minor-league deal with San Francisco on Aug. 7, and he'll join the big-league club after posting four scoreless appearances for Triple-A Sacramento.

Blue Jays' Tyler Chatwood: DFA'd by Toronto
Chatwood (neck) was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Friday.
The veteran right-hander has been on the injured list since early July with a neck strain, but he's been removed from the 40-man roster to make room for Jose Berrios, who was acquired Friday from the Twins. Chatwood made five rehab appearances with Triple-A Buffalo over the past couple weeks, so he should be available in the near future should any other teams be interested on the waiver wire....

Blue Jays' Tyler Chatwood: Rehabbing at Triple-A
Chatwood (neck) made his fourth rehab appearance at Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday, tossing a scoreless sixth inning for the affiliate in its 3-2 win over Syracuse. He yielded a hit and walked two in the 23-pitch outing.
Though Chatwood has allowed only one run over 3.2 innings during the rehab assignment, the control issues he battled prior to landing on the injured list July 2 with a neck strain haven't gone away. He's now issued six walks over his four appearances at Buffalo, and he pumped in only 11 of his 23 pitches for strikes Sunday. Until Chatwood shows that he can consistently find the strike zone at Triple-A, the Blue Jays may be loath to expedite his return from the IL.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Tyler Chatwood: Lands on IL
Chatwood was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with a neck strain, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

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.... See More ... See Less

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.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Tyler Chatwood: Loses control in loss
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.

Blue Jays' Tyler Chatwood: Takes loss in relief
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.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Tyler Chatwood: Dominant in third hold
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.... See More ... See Less
