Ondrusek, 31, made only seven appearances for the Orioles in the second half this past season, yielding seven runs on nine hits with three walks and four strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings. In the year and a half prior, Ondrusek pitched in Japan.
Danks, 31, struggled in his first four starts with the White Sox this past season before being released in mid-May. Danks owns a 4.92 ERA in 97 starts since the start of the 2012 season. He’s been bothered by shoulder issues for years.
The Braves have quite a bit of competition at the back of their starting rotation. Danks more likely could pitch out of the bullpen or provide depth at Triple-A.
The Cubs have already made one major bullpen acquisition this offseason, trading with the Royals for closer Wade Davis to fill the gap left by Aroldis Chapman. Wilson and Mike Montgomery would give the Cubs two lefties in the bullpen.
Wilson, 29, is under team control through the 2018 season. Over parts of five seasons in the majors, Wilson has a career 3.28 ERA with a 258/98 K/BB ratio in 258 innings. He doesn’t have much of a platoon split over his career and even showed a reverse split last season, suggesting that he might fit better in a full-inning role rather than being used as a lefty specialist.
