Cubs reportedly signing lefty

The Chicago Cubs will be bringing back lefty Rex Brothers on a minor league deal, according to Baseball America.
Brothers only pitched 3.1 innings in 2020 (-0.1 WAR), registering 8 strikeouts of 15 batters for an 8.10 ERA.
If Brothers doesn't win a job out of spring training, he certainly will be used going up and down from the minors to the big-league club when needed by a tired bullpen.
He has a 20-14 record for his MLB career (4.6 WAR) with a 3.84 ERA, 319 strikeouts, and 1.496 WHIP in 269.1 total innings.
The Rockies drafted him with the 34th overall pick in the 2009 amateur draft.
