by - Senior Editor -

A former Chicago Cubs pitcher is piquing interest again on the Northside.

According to a report by Cubs insider Bruce Levine, free-agent pitcher Jeff Samardzija will throw for the Cubs in the next few days.

The Giants released the 36-year-old in September after being out most of the season rehabbing his shoulder.

He had a 9.72 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in his four starts last season.

In 2019, he was healthy and impressive with a 3.52 ERA in 32 starts.

The Cubs drafted Samardzija in the fifth round of the 2006 amateur draft.
