Koji Uehara has reached a deal to join the Cubs, per Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports.
We're still awaiting confirmation regarding the particulars, but a report out of Japan pegs it as a one-year deal in the neighborhood of $4.5 million. This represents a bit of a bargain for the veteran set-up man as long as he stays on the mound. He figures to be the eighth-inning bridge to new Cubs closer Wade Davis. Uehara has a career 2.53 ERA and 0.86 WHIP in 437 2/3 innings. His ERA bumped up to 3.45 this season despite an elite 12.06 punchouts per nine innings. He is a right-handed pitcher, but has actually fared better versus left-handed batters. Dec 8 - 7:01 PM
