Chicago Cubs: Tyler Chatwood scratched from Friday's start
|Friday, August 14, 2020, 6:09 PM- -|
The Chicago Cubs announced on Friday that starting pitcher Tyler Chatwood is a late scratch for tonight's ballgame against the Brewers due to mid-back tightness.
The injury doesn't sound too serious but I guess we will have more news later from David Ross tonight or in the morning about it.
For the season, Chatwood is 2-1 with a 5.40 ERA. He gave up eight runs on 11 hits in his last start against the Royals.
Alec Mills will start in place of Chatwood.
Mills has a 2-0 record with a 1.38 ERA in two starts this season.
The team said that tomorrow's starter is still to be determined.
