The Rockies have dealt 28-year old righty swinging catcher Chris Iannetta to the Angels for 21-year old righty starting pitcher Tyler Chatwood. Iannetta played in 112 games for the Rockies last year and he was 82 for 345 (.238 avg, .785 OPS) with 51 runs scored, 14 homers, 55 RBIs and 6 stolen bases. He played in 458 games in his six years with the Rockies and he was 336 of 1,429 (.235 avg, .788 OPS) with 196 runs scored, 63 homers, 236 RBIs and 7 stolen bases. Iannetta never lived up to the expectations that the Rockies had for him, so they aren’t going to miss him going forward. Tyler Chatwood is a young starting pitcher with a nice upside. Chatwood pitched in 27 games (25 starts) for the Angels as a rookie last year and he was 6-11 with a 4.75 ERA and a 1.67 WHIP. He does have some things he needs to work on though as he gave up 166 hits and walked 71 batters in only 142 innings for the Angels. But, Chatwood is more than young enough to turn things around soon, so expect him to win a spot in the Rockies’ rotation in 2012.
