Koji Uehara is headed to Chicago’s north side on a one-year, $6 million deal.
The Cubs brought in Uehara to join a bullpen that looks like it’ll be just as lethal as it was during last season’s World Series run. The beloved 41-year-old right-hander, who spent the last four years with the Boston Red Sox, has been one of the more consistent relievers in the game.
Even after losing Aroldis Chapman in free agency to the Yankees, the backend of the Cubs bullpen looks scary. It now includes Uehara, Hector Rondon, and Wade Davis who was brought in via trade last week.
