Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports that the Chicago Cubs are likely to sign free agent pitcher Jaime Garcia.
Garcia was released by the Blue Jays on Wednesday after putting together a disappointing 2018 campaign. Signed to a $10 million deal last offseason, with either option years or a $2 million buyout for 2019, Garcia compiled a 3-6 record and a 5.93 ERA in 13 starts and 12 relief appearances. the Jays are on the hook for the money. The Cubs, if they do sign him, will pay the minimum for the rest of the way.
