Cubs' Brandon Morrow: Favorite to close
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrow is seen as the Cubs' would-be closer, barring further offseason additions, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Wittenmyer goes on to say that the Cubs are keeping the door open for an affordable Wade Davis reunion, in which case Morrow would move to a setup role. Even if the Cubs don't add another closer between now and Opening Day, Morrow would be a shaky fantasy option, given his injury history and the presence of Carl Edwards Jr. and Justin Wilson, who are also very capable options for the ninth inning. Morrow notched a 2.06 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 50 strikeouts in 43.2 innings as a setup man with the Dodgers last season.

Cubs' Brandon Morrow: Agrees to deal with Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrow agreed to a two-year deal with the Cubs on Sunday, Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports.

Morrow is coming off a magnificent season with the Dodgers and will provide a much-needed reliable option at the back end of the Cubs' bullpen. In 43.2 innings of relief in 2017, the veteran righty posted a 2.06 ERA (1.55 FIP) with a 50:9 K:BB. The Cubs' closing situation is still in a bit of flux after Wade Davis declined his qualifying offer and elected free agency. Morrow could at least be in the picture for saves, if not the top option, by offseason's end.

Cubs' Tyler Chatwood: Signs with Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chatwood signed a three-year contract with the Cubs on Thursday, Carrie Muskat of reports.

The deal is apparently worth $38 million over the three years, according to Muskat. While Chatwood posted an unremarkable 4.69 ERA across 147.2 innings last season, his splits were significantly better away from his home ballpark (hitter-friendly Coors Field). The 27-year-old posted a 6.01 ERA while opponents hit .302 against him in 17 starts at home, while those marks sat at 3.49 and .200, respectively, in his 16 starts away from Coors Field. He'll slot into the backend of Chicago's rotation next season.

Cubs' Dario Alvarez: Signs big-league deal with Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alvarez signed a major-league deal with the Cubs, Mets Minors' Jacob Resnick reports.

The Rangers designated him for assignment last season, despite the fact that his Triple-A numbers were excellent (2.33 ERA, 31.3 percent strikeout rate), and he limited runs (2.76 ERA) while striking out 17 over 16.1 MLB innings. Of course, his 14 walks over that stretch are concerning, but his stuff is pretty decent from the left side. He works strictly with a fastball (92.4 mph) and slider, which he threw a whopping 61.7 percent of the time in 2017. He should start the season in a low-leverage role.
