BREAKING: Cubs On The Verge Of Signing Scott Feldman (Updated)

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

Buster Olney is reporting this morning that the Cubs are on the cusp of signing RHP Scott Feldman.

The 6’6″ righty spent his entire career in Texas with a 5.09 ERA, a 1.383 WHIP, and an 89 ERA+ in 123.2 total innings pitched in 2012.

Feldman would act as bottom end starter for the Cubs, possibly as a failsafe for Scott Baker and Travis Wood should they not be up to par. Feldman’s experience in the bigs as a contact pitcher would compliment the rest of the rotation.

Expect a lower end deal. More to come as news breaks.

 

UPDATE: The signing is now official. A one year/$6 million deal with an additional $1 million in incentives has been inked. In depth analysis to come later today.
