The lefty posted a 3.74 ERA in 589 out of 694 career appearances after the age of 30. He also played 48 games for the St. Louis Cardinals and the Toronto Blue Jays.

What do you think of the signing? Do you think he'll be able to get a spot on the Cubs' roster or have to play in the minors for awhile?
