Chicago Cubs: It may not be overly exciting, but a solid veteran helps

Dan Jennings is not someone who is going to light the world on fire or strike out a ton of batters even, but he could give Chicago cheap lefty depth.

Jennings, 31,  is a career 2.96 pitcher with a 3.83 FIP, 1.404 WHIP and 7.1 K/9 in seven seasons with the Marlins, White Sox, Rays and Brewers. Last season in Milwaukee he pitched to a 3.22 ERA and 4.09 FIP in 64 1/3 innings.

One of the big concerns with him is a higher WHIP as his career BB/9 clocks in at 3.9. He is not a guy used in high-leverage situations necessarily, but an arm that can come in and try to give you a scoreless seventh inning.

Unlike Ottavino and Robertson, Jennings at this point would probably come pretty cheap. Hard to see him getting anything more than a one or two-year deal.
