Cardinals' Brett Cecil: Agrees to four-year deal with Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cecil has agreed to a four-year deal with the Cardinals on Saturday worth possibly in excess of $30 million, Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports.

A four-year deal is quite the windfall for a reliever that had a rough contract year, posting a 3.93 ERA and missing time with a triceps strain in 2016. Still, his larger body of work is impressive enough to warrant a multi-year deal and the Cardinals are drastically in need of left-handed help out of the bullpen with Zach Duke (elbow) and Tyler Lyons (knee) out for several months.

Brett Cecil: Receives three-year offer from Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cecil was reportedly offered a three-year contract to resign with Toronto, Sportsnet reports.

Cecil posted a 3.93 ERA over 54 appearances and 36.2 innings pitched in 2016. A left triceps strain forced him to miss six weeks beginning in mid-May, and Cecil's ERA had peaked at 6.75 by July 20th. From that point on, however, the southpaw regained his velocity and posted a 1.74 ERA in his final 30 appearances.

Blue Jays' Brett Cecil: Makes 15th straight scoreless appearance
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cecil picked up his eighth hold of the season, pitching one inning and striking out two Wednesday against Baltimore.

The southpaw was called upon in a pressing spot Wednesday, entering with a pair of runners on base and one out in the top of the seventh. Cecil successfully worked around the trouble while extending his streak to 15 straight scoreless outings. The 30-year-old should continue getting opportunities to pitch in high-leverage situations with Joaquin Benoit possibly out for the season because of a torn left calf muscle. Cecil has been a rare bright spot in the Jays' struggling bullpen during the final month.

Blue Jays' Brett Cecil: Heating up down stretch run
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cecil's recent success is the result of gaining command of his curveball and throwing it more often at the expense of his sinker and cut fastball, SB Nation reports.

In the first half of the season, Cecil struggled with his curveball to no end. He threw it for strikes only 32.98 percent of the time, and hitters smashed it to the tune of a .296 batting average and a .519 slugging percentage. That's changed dramatically since the break, as Cecil has dropped the hook in for a strike 49 percent of the time while holding batters to a .167 average against the pitch. The left-hander has been unhittable recently. Over Cecil's last 13 appearances, he's allowed just six hits and no runs while racking up a 12:1 K:BB over eight innings.

Blue Jays' Brett Cecil: Enjoying season-best scoreless appearance streak
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cecil was asked to retire just one batter, David Ortiz, in Sunday's game against the Red Sox. He induced a weak lineout from the power-hitting lefty.

Cecil, typically a late-inning specialist, made an unusual early appearance in relief, getting called on in the fourth inning with two outs and nobody on base, an atypically low-leverage situation. Nonetheless, the left-hander got the job done and extended his scoreless-appearance streak to a season-best eight games. Cecil has made four September appearances, allowing two hits and notching four strikeouts in 2.2 innings.
