The Chicago Cubs will be bringing back a friendly face in former Cubs pitcher Brian Duensing. According to multiple reports including MLB insider Jon Heyman, The Cubs have a deal in place with Duensing for two-years worth $7 million.

"Duensing had deals for significantly more money elsewhere but liked the Cubs experience so much he wanted to return," Heyman posted. "Can’t blame him."

This is a good move by the Cubs as he is a reliable bullpen arm and you can never have too many lefties. The Cubs are probably done with moves in the bullpen because they have done well this offseason.

In 2017, he had an impressive season with a 1-1 record with a 2.74 ERA with 61 strikeouts, 7.0% walk rate, 23.7% K rate, and 1.22 WHIP. He made $2 million in salary last season.

For his career, he has a 4.01 ERA with 499 strikeouts and 1.37 WHIP. He was drafted by the Minnesota Twins in the third round (84th overall) in the 2005 MLB draft.
