The free agent signings have slowed to a crawl as teams are trying not to break the bank for the upcoming 2018 major league season.

However, it appears that the Chicago Cubs made a move recently in signing former Detriot Tiger reliever Kyle Ryan to a minor-league contract according to his Twitter account.

In 2017 at Triple-A Toledo, the 26-year old had a 4.96 ERA with 1.82 WHIP in 45.1 innings. In the majors with Detriot, he pitched in only eight games and had a 7.94 ERA with a strikeout and 2.82 WHIP.

The one upside on Ryan is that he is under team control for five more seasons and doesn't become arbitration eligible to 2020. If somehow, he gets it together, the Cubs have found them a true gem for several seasons.

He was selected in the 12th round by the Detriot Tigers in the 2010 MLB draft.
