Chatwood on schedule for Saturday's start

DENVER -- Tyler Chatwood is all but penciled in for his next start Saturday in San Diego.

That seemed like a very unlikely scenario Sunday, when Chatwood took a line drive directly off his pitching hand and was pulled from the game three batters later. But Chatwood said he had no setbacks after a bullpen session before Wednesday's game against the Dodgers.

"Bullpen went well, so as it stands today, he lines up to make his next start unless he has some issues tomorrow," manager Walt Weiss said. "Everything went pretty well today."

Chatwood has been one of the best surprises for the Rockies with a 3.25 ERA and 60 strikeouts in 16 starts. He was even more dominant in May and June, his July ERA took a major hit when the Braves drubbed him for seven earned runs in 2 1/3 innings. That was his final start before he went on the disabled list with right elbow impingement.
