NEW YORK — Rockies right-handed starter Tyler Chatwood was removed from Saturday night’s game against the New York Mets with an apparent injury.
Chatwood was off to a very rocky start, walking the first two batters he faced on nine pitches before getting Yoenis Cespedes to fly out to center. But then Jay Bruce blasted a three-run homer, and then Chatwood walked T.J. Rivera.
At that point, manager Bud Black and assistant trainer Scott Gehret went to the mound to check Chatwood out. Chatwood threw several practice pitches before he was removed from the game. There was no immediate word as to what the injury is, or how serious the injury might be.
Chatwood, who entered the game 6-10 with a 4.42 ERA, has been healthy all season. However, he’s undergone two Tommy John surgeries, one in high school and one in July 2014.
