Chatwood to sign Friday

Redlands East Valley pitcher Tyler Chatwood, a second-round draft pick by the Angels in last Thursday’s Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft, will sign a contract with the Angels on Friday.

Chatwood wouldn’t disclose the terms of the contract, but is extremely excited about the opportunity to play professional baseball.

“It’s an amazing feeling,” Chatwood said. “I’ve always wanted to play professional baseball and its a great feeling to get it started.”

Chatwood is unsure of when he would leave Redlands to join the Angels’ rookie league team, but suggested it could be as early as Saturday.
