Reds RHP Sal Romano (0-1, 6.00 ERA) at Rockies RHP Tyler Chatwood (6-9, 4.41), 1:10 p.m. Thursday, MLB-TV; 850 AM
Chatwood certainly has not pitched as the Rockies had hoped he would, especially considering he’s the veteran of their rotation. Manager Bud Black loves that Chatwood has such great movement on his fastball and breaking pitches. The problem has been Chatwood’s inability to harness his stuff in a consistent manner. He took the loss at Arizona on Saturday when he allowed six runs (four earned) on seven hits over 6L innings. Chatwood is 2-4 with a 6.39 ERA at Coors Field this season. Romano, 23, is making just his second bigleague appearance, the last one coming in April 2016. He’s ranked as the eightbest prospect in the Reds organization.
