CHICAGO — Not long after the Chicago Cubs acquired veteran slugger Jose Martinez from the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday, it was also announced that the Cubs would be signing a veteran reliever off the free agent market. 33-year-old A.J. Ramos, who was recently released from his minor league deal by the Los Angeles Dodgers, is set to join the Cubs.

Ramos is a right-hander with seven seasons of big league pitching experience under his belt. He was selected to play in the 2016 All-Star Game while a member of the Miami Marlins. Ramos was a Marlin from 2012-17 and also pitched for the New York Mets from 2017-18. He has a career record of 17-18 and a career ERA of 3.07.
