Former Cubs pitcher signs with Nationals


by - Senior Editor -

Another former Cub is headed to Washington.

Former Chicago Cubs reliever Jeremy Jeffress has reportedly signed a minor league deal with the Washington Nationals on Monday according to multiple reports.

The deal will be worth $1.25 million if he makes the big-league roster and the deal is pending a physical. Incentives reportedly can add another $1.25 million with performance bonuses this year.

Obviously, this is a great move by the Nationals if Jeffress is healthy and can perform at anywhere close to last year's standard.

Jeffress had an impressive 4-1 record with a sparkling 1.54 ERA in 22 games in 2020.

Overall across 414 career games, the 33-year-old has posted a 32-12 record with a solid 3.08 ERA with 76 holds.
