BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Chatwood, the Angels' 2008 second-round pick, came to Colorado in the Iannetta trade. He battled command issues and showed little growth from his rookie season. Part of the problem was that he kept bouncing from level to level and from role to role. When he returned to the big club for good in August, it was in his more familiar starting role and he pitched well. If Chatwood continues to attack hitters the way he did at the end of 2012, he could be effective at the back of a rotation, although it might not happen right away.
2012 Chatwood's 2010 breakout in High-A made him a pretty good prospect for the Angels, but expecting him to thrive as the youngest player in the American League in 2011 was too optimistic. He did manage to survive lousy strikeout and walk rates through June, with the most double plays induced in baseball and an ERA in the mid-threes. His manager and pitching coach touted his guts and makeup, which are good for pitchers but even better for haunted housesóChatwood's second half was downright horrifying. Don't judge his future by his peripherals; with a broad repertoire, two fastballs in the mid-90s, and the ability to get grounders when he needs them, Chatwood should improve across the board, though not necessarily enough to survive in Coors Field.
2011 Chatwood posted eye-popping numbers in the hitter-friendly California League, earning a June promotion. The undersized lefty was the youngest of the Double-A Arkansas Travelers, and it showed in his peripherals, if not his ERA, as his strikeout rate plummeted (though his ground-ball rate remained strong). The native Californian can pump his heavy fastball in the mid-90s, and already boasts a plus curve, exhibiting impressive polish for his age. Chatwood was rewarded with a start at Salt Lake to end his season, and might well begin 2011 there, if the Angels adhere to their pattern of aggressive pitching promotions with their 2010 organizational pitcher of the year.
2010 Little man, big arm. Chosen in the second round of the 2008 draft (number 74 overall) as the Angels' top pick, Chatwood drew inevitable comparisons to Roy Oswalt due to his diminutive size and combination of a mid-90s fastball and a knee-buckling curve. Impressive enough in his pro debut in 2008, he bypassed the Pioneer League and made a solid showing at Cedar Rapids, missing bats and producing ground balls. Command was an issue, particularly earlier in the year; he walked 6.1 per nine before the break, but just 4.3 after, and luckily, his strikeout rate didn't waver. He'll have plenty of time to continue ironing out his command as he climbs the ladder.
2009 The Angels' top pick in the 2008 draft (second round), teenage righty Tyler Chatwood showed impressive velocity, a nice curve, and big-time control issues in his pro debut.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-03-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Has Tyler Chatwood finally turned into a real boy? Or was the second half last year a fluke?
(Elvis from Graceland)
I won't call him a fluke, but I'm not convinced yet. (R.J. Anderson)
2013-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)No where like Fairport! Own it Adam! Grabbed Westbrook of the waiver wire. Decent add? (H2H 12 teamer)
(RLewis from Fairport NY)
I'm not a fan. Who else is out there? Tyler Chatwood seems to be lingering on wires everywhere and I like him a bit. (Paul Sporer)
2011-08-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)fair enough, what kind of ceiling do you think Garrett Richards has?
(NoahBraun from SD)
I'm a big fan of Richards, and have never really bought the growing consensus that Tyler Chatwood is the better pitcher. He might have the best two fastballs in the system, and he's gone from being unaccountably wild to extremely pitch efficient and capable of getting 15 groundballs in a row. (Sam Miller)
2011-07-13 12:30:00 (link to chat)Do you see the Angels trying to acquire Heath Bell? They seem unlikely to be able to acquire a decent 3B with power, so would their best bet to make (and advance in) the post-season be to ride Weaver and Haren and a shut-down bullpen?
(Dennis from LA)
That's not the worst idea, though the Angels have already committed quite a few bucks to their bullpen and Jordan Walden hasn't disappointed.

Yikes, Tyler Chatwood has a 4.7 BB/9, a 4.7 K/9, and a 3.62 ERA. I know he's a groundballer, but something's gotta give. (Ben Lindbergh)
2010-08-20 15:30:00 (link to chat)What is Tyler Chatwood's ceiling looking like? Is there much of chance of him becoming a good #2? I'm assuming it's size and not stuff that keeps his ceiling down?
(mrenick from Little rock)
I think it's fair to say size, command and changeup are all issues, but he's a really good arm. (Kevin Goldstein)
