Evan Drellich of the Boston Herald reports that Koji Uehara is close to signing with the Cubs.
No deal is official, but Nikkan Sports in Japan says it's a one-year deal at $4.5 million. If true, the Cubs have made big strides to rebuild their bullpen after moving on from Aroldis Chapman. Chicago acquired former Royals closer Wade Davis in a trade on Wednesday. Uehara will be 42 years old next season, but remains a top setup reliever. He threw 47 innings this year with seven saves and a 3.45 ERA. He posts elite strikeout rates year after year but has struggled to stay on the mound due to injury. He is unlikely to see save chances in 2017, but his ratios make him a solid fantasy option even in leagues that don't use holds as a category. He has a career 2.53 ERA with 93 saves in 387 games since leaving Japan in 2009. Dec 8 - 4:59 PM
