Chicago Cubs Sign Veteran Reliever; Spent Eight Seasons With The Twins

The Chicago Cubs continue to stockpile arms.

The Cubs have signed pitcher Tyler Duffey to a minor-league contract with an invite to spring training.

Duffey will compete for a spot in the Cubs' bullpen this spring.

Duffey had a good season with the Minnesota Twins last year, before regressing which ultimately led to his being released. Overall, he finished with a 4.91 ERA, 1.36 WHIP, and 39 strikeouts over 44 innings of work. 

The thirty-two-year-old had spent all eight seasons of his major league career with the Twins before they cut him last season.

Duffey finished the season with the New York Yankees' organization before electing free agency.

Duffey has been a pretty reliable reliever for most of his career, so it's not a bad addition by the Cubs.
