Peralta signed a minor league contract with the Cubs on Thursday, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

After being designated for assignment by the Mariners on June 2 and subsequently released two days later, Peralta was able to find a new landing spot fairly quickly. The 40-year-old reliever had a good amount of struggles in 23.1 innings with Seattle, amassing a 5.40 ERA and allowing seven home runs, but he did post an excellent 10.8 K/9 during that time. He'll begin with Triple-A Iowa, but if he can keep the ball in the park better going forward, he could join the Cubs bullpen sometime later in the season.
