The Chicago Cubs have signed veteran righty Joel Peralta to a minor league deal pending a physical and he will head to Triple-A Iowa.

Peralta will reunite with former manager Joe Maddon, who he had a successful four-year stint with in Tampa Bay. The Blue Jays and Royals also had an interest in the 40-year old reliever.

He is a flyball pitcher with a fastball, slider and a changeup.

In 2016, Peralta had a 5.40 ERA with 11 holds, 28 strikeouts, and two blown saves. For his career, he has a 4.00 ERA with fifteen saves, 169 holds, and 607 strikeouts.
