Right-handed pitcher Tyler Chatwood - not Shohei Ohtani - solidified his future by inking a three-year deal with the Cubs Thursday afternoon.

Chatwood was 8-15 with a 4.69 ERA in 33 appearances (25 as a starter) with the Rockies last season, tying for the most losses in the NL.

The Chicago Cubs have made a move in the 2017 MLB Offseason.

Adding Chatwood boosts a rotation that will likely lose former Cy Young Award victor Jake Arrieta and veteran John Lackey. He's spent his last six big league seasons in Colorado after debuting in 2011 with the Los Angeles Angels.

Matt Lauer Won't Be Cut From 'I, Tonya' or 'Lady Bird'
Matt Lauer attends NBC's " Today " at Rockefeller Plaza on November 20, 2012 in New York City. Lauer apologized in a statement Thursday, but said that some of the accusations are "untrue".


That indicates clear room for improvement for Chatwood, a groundball pitcher who now has the benefit of pitching in front of one of the game's best infield defenses.

For what it's worth, he also has an 0.69 ERA and 0.69 WHIP in two career starts at Wrigley Field. He has a 4.31 ERA (310 earned runs in 647 2/3 innings) in 130 major-league appearances, including 113 starts. On the road, he recorded a 3.49 ERA and held foes to a.200 batting average.

In 2016 Chatwood posted a 12-9 mark with a 3.87 ERA.

Chatwood will join Jon Lester, Kyle Hendricks, and Jose Quintana in the team's rotation. That stellar season came after he missed all of 2015 because of his second Tommy John surgery.
