Lefty David Rollins has finally cleared waivers and will join the Chicago Cubs at Spring Training as a non-roster player according to multiple reports.

Rollins has had an incredible last few months because he has moved from the Mariners to Cubs to Rangers to Phillies to Rangers and now back to the Cubs again. All of these waiver moves have happened to him since Nov. 18.

He was 5-0 with two saves, a 3.77 ERA in 37 relief appearances in 2016 with Triple-A Tacoma. The southpaw last season spent big league time with the Mariners for the second year in a row, going 1-0 with a 7.71 ERA (8 ER/9.1 IP) in 11 relief outings.

He was drafted by the Mariners in the 2014 Rule 5 Draft.
