The Colorado Rockies improved to 20-14 on the season following an 8-2 win Monday night against the Texas Rangers.  The Rockies, who improved to 18-14,  are lead by an offense that is first in the league in runs scored.  They got bad news on the injury front, as pitcher Tyler Chatwood was moved from the 15-day to the 60-day disabled list.

According to a tweet from MLBRosterMoves,
Our own Rose Ingberman reported on April 30 that Chatwood was placed on the 15-day DL with a right elbow strain.  He missed two weeks at the start of the season with a strained hamstring.  In four games this season, Chatwood is 1-0 with a 4.50 ERA. In 24 innings, he's allowed 20 hits and eight walks, while striking out 20.

Chatwood began his Major League career in 2011 with the Los Angeles Angels. As a rookie he went 6-11 with a 4.75 ERA.  Chatwood had a 5.43 ERA in just 64 2/3 innings with the Rockies in 2011.  He was enjoying his best season last year before injuries limited him to 20 starts.  In 70 career games, Chatwood is 20-22 with a 4.34 ERA.
