Today the Chicago Cubs signed reliever/spot-starter Dave Bush to a minor league deal. He’ll report to AAA Iowa over the weekend, says Bruce Miles.
You’ll remember Bush as “that Brewers starter whom the Cubs always smacked around,” but more recently, he’s been “that Rangers pitcher whom everyone smacked around.” He had a 5.79 ERA in 37.1 innings for the Rangers this year, alternating between the bullpen and spot starts, before the Rangers dumped him.
Bush is 31, and will serve as additional depth (most likely bullpen depth), depending on what happens over the next couple of weeks.
