The Pittsburgh Pirates will try to resurrect the career of veteran right-hander Tyler Chatwood after agreeing to a minor-league contract with the 33-year-old.

Fansided first reported the agreement and a Pirates’ source confirmed it Wednesday.

Chatwood pitched in the major league for 10 seasons from 2011-21. He compiled a 52-60 record with five saves and a 4.45 ERA in 229 games (143 starts) with the Los Angeles Angels (2011), Colorado Rockies (2012-14, 2016-17), Chicago Cubs (2018-20), Toronto Blue Jays (2021) and San Francisco Giants (2021).

In 878.2 innings, Chatwood had 660 strikeouts and a 1.51 WHIP.

Tyler Chatwood spent last season with the Fukuoka Softball Hawks in Japan’s Nippon Professional Baseball. He was limited to six games before undergoing shoulder surgery and had a 2-0 record with a 2.59 ERA.
