Chicago Cubs Sign Pitcher

The Chicago Cubs have signed Eric Stout to a minor league contract. 

Stout spent this past season split between the Cubs and Pittsburgh Pirates, where he put together a 0-0 record and 5.64 ERA in 20 appearances. Overall, it is fair to say that he had mixed results in the majors in 2022, but now he will be aiming to be more consistent with Chicago in 2023.

Overall, Stout will serve as a decent depth option for the Cubs. In 23 career MLB games, the 6-foot-3 lefty has a 0-0 record to go along with a 7.30 ERA.
