  • Biagini was returned to Triple-A Iowa on Monday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Biagini spent most of the 2021 campaign in the minors, but his contract was selected during the final weekend of the season. He made a relief appearance against the Cardinals during the season finale and allowed two hits and a walk while striking out two in three scoreless innings, but he'll be removed from the 40-man roster heading into the offseason.

  • Biagini (1-0) pitched three scoreless innings of relief to earn the win Sunday against the Cardinals. He allowed two hits and a walk while striking out two. Biagini had his contract selected from Triple-A Iowa on Saturday, and this was his first game in the majors this season, so he'll finish the year with a perfect 1-0 record and 0.00 ERA. The 31-year-old also posted a 5.50 ERA and 1.56 WHIP across 91.2 innings for Iowa this season. Biagini figures to provide organizational depth for the Cubs or a different club in 2022, and he likely won't be on the fantasy radar.

  • Biagini's contract was selected from Triple-A Iowa on Saturday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Biagini joined the Cubs on a minor-league deal in February and has spent the entire 2021 campaign in Iowa. He recorded a 5.50 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 91.2 innings across 22 appearances (19 starts) and will be available out of the bullpen for the final two games of the regular season.

  • Biagini signed a minor-league contract with the Cubs on Dec. 17, Chris Hilburn-Trenkle of Baseball America reports. Biagini will try his luck in a new organization after he elected free agency this offseason when Houston outrighted him off its 40-man roster. During the abbreviated 2020 campaign, Biagini missed time with a sore shoulder and wasn't effective when healthy, giving up 10 runs on 10 hits and four walks over 4.1 innings. Given that he has 221 MLB appearances on his resume, Biagini's minor-league deal will likely include an invitation to big-league spring training, so he should have the opportunity to compete for a spot in Chicago's Opening Day bullpen.

  • Biagini elected free agency rather than accept an outright assignment to the minors Friday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports. Biagini's tenure with the Astros was a disaster. Since joining the team at the trade deadline in 2019, he's posted a 10.42 ERA and 2.32 WHIP over 19 innings. As a 30-year-old with a 5.59 ERA over his last four seasons, he's unlikely to be a hot commodity as a free agent.
