Morrow nearing deal with Cubs

  • New report suggests Cubs likely to pursue Rays All Star pitchers Chris Archer and Alex Colome

According to multiple reports on Sunday, the Cubs have agreed to a two-year contract worth 10-11 million per year with an option for 2020 in place with right-handed reliever Brandon Morrow. With the potential loss of free agent closer Wade Davis, rumored to test the free agency market, Morrow will conceivably be slotted into the closer role for the north siders. "While the Cubs have not yet confirmed the deal, Heyman hears that it will be for "$10 or $11 million [per] year".

This signing follows the acquisition of free agent starter Tyler Chatwood, boosting a starting rotation that will now be sans former Cy Young award victor Jake Arrieta.

Morrow came to the Dodgers on a minor league contract prior to the 2017 season, and exceeded even the loftiest of expectations.

In the 2017 postseason, he had a 3.94 ERA (pitched 14/15 games).

Morrow pitched 43.2 innings last season and did not give up a home run in the regular season. Although it was possible that the Dodgers would attempt to keep the club's stellar bullpen intact this offseason, Cubs president of basketball operations Theo Epstein appears to have moved too quickly. Who will take his place in the Dodgers bullpen is still a question, but it will need to be addressed soon. The Cubs are still after more arms as the winter meetings begin. He was the Dodgers top set-up man last season and he is a major get for the Cubs as they have bolstered their team weakness.
