Cubs' Edgar Olmos: Designated for assignment Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edgar Olmos was designated for assignment by the Chicago Cubs on Friday.

Olmos was DFA'd in order to make room for left-hander C.J. Riefenhauser, who was claimed off waivers on Friday. The 25-year-old had a 4.50 ERA and 1.71 WHIP in 14 innings pitched for the Mariners in 2015.

Cubs' CJ Riefenhauser: Claimed by the Cubs on Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

C.J. Riefenhauser was claimed off waivers by the Chicago Cubs on Friday.

The 26-year-old performed well at Triple-A Durham in 2015, producing a 2.86 ERA in 34.2 innings of work. However, Riefenhauser has a career 6.30 ERA in the major leagues while tossing 20 innings between 2014 and 2015. The Cubs already have a solid bullpen in place, meaning if Riefenhauser stays with the club he will likely begin the season in the minor leagues.

Cubs' Pierce Johnson: Developed changeup in 2015
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Johnson took advantage of his time off with injuries to work on his changeup in 2015, the Cubs' official site reports. "I was able to throw it for strikes, and that was huge," he said of the pitch. "Just having the confidence in that pitch made it that much better."

The Cubs have been trying to get Johnson to develop a third pitch ever since he was drafted in 2012, and he finally looks like he has one to go with a fastball and slider. He's already one of the better pitching prospects in the system, but his rise to the majors has been stalled a bit. Don't be surprised to hear his name a bit more in 2016.

Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Avoids arbitration with Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jake Arrieta and the Chicago Cubs avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $10.7 million contract Friday night, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports.

Arrieta will receive a salary bump in excess of $7 million after winning the NL Cy Young Award in 2015. He will have one more year of arbitration eligibility remaining, and will have a good chance to top his 2016 salary if he is anywhere near as dominant as he was a year ago. Arrieta will head the Cubs' rotation this season, making him the odds on favorite to take the ball Opening Day.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jonathan Mota signed a minor league contract with the Chicago Cubs , according to Baseball America.

The 28-year-old will return for his 12th season in the Cubs' organization, providing defensive versatility but little else. Mota saw time at six different positions for Triple-A Iowa last year but hit .252/.297/.346 with two steals in 252 plate appearances. He has hit .266/.302/.392 in parts of five seasons at the Triple-A level.
