Cubs Sign Brandon Morrow

 Today the Cubs signed 33 year old right handed pitcher Brandon Morrow to a two year deal worth 10-11 million dollars with a third year option. Morrow spent 2017 with the Dodgers and even pitched against the Cubs in the NLCS and pitched very well against us, pitching 4.2 innings just giving up one hit and one walk while striking out seven.
Morrow has pitched in the MLB since the 2007 season when he got called up with the Seattle Mariners.
Even after signing Brandon Morrow, the Cubs are reportedly still looking for another late innings pitcher, and should be happening especially if the Cubs don’t resign Wade Davis, who would be a very expensive player to bring back. Even though I liked Davis a lot and he did a good job for us, the Cubs need to replace him. The other pitcher I would like is Greg Holland, whose numbers look pretty good and his age wouldn’t matter since we are trying to win now and could only need him for this upcoming season.
Morrow is the second pitcher the Cubs have signed this week after signing starting pitcher Tyler Chatwood on Thursday. Brandon had a good season in 2017, ending the season as a World Series runner up with the Dodgers. He had 43 ⅔ relief innings with an ERA of 2.06. And he gave up an impressing zero home runs!
He should be a good pick up, and he will definitely look way better pitching against the Dodgers with the Cubs, then against the Cubs with the Dodgers.
