Chatwood to sign tonight

Redlands East Valley pitcher Tyler Chatwood, the Angels’ first selection in last week’s Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft, signed a contract with the Angels Friday evening. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
The Chatwood family drove down to Angels Stadium Friday afternoon and signed the contract prior to the Angels’ game with the Atlanta Braves – a game where the Chatwoods were set up with front-row seats in the Diamond Club behind home plate.
“I’m really excited right now,” Chatwood said. “It’s all starting to sink in. I have some butterflies right now, but they are good butterflies.”
As of Friday afternoon, Chatwood was unsure of when he would head out to play Rookie League ball, guessing that it would be sometime next week. The Angels have Rookie League affiliates in Tempe, Ariz. and Orem, Utah.
