While some will dismiss Chatwood based on his lifetime 4.31 ERA and 1.49 WHIP, wise fantasy owners are aware that he posted a solid 3.18 ERA on the road (5.17 ERA at home) during his tenure with the Rockies. The Angels selected him in the second round of the 2008 amateur draft. He has a 4.31 ERA (310 earned runs in 647 2/3 innings) in 130 major-league appearances, including 113 starts. Chatwood figures to slot into the rotation behind Jon Lester, Kyle Hendricks and Jose Quintana.
