The Chicago Cubs have agreed to a four-year, $68 million deal with right-handed pitcher Jameson Taillon, according to ESPN's Jesse Rogers and Jeff Passan.
Taillon, 31, played the last two seasons with the New York Yankees and recorded a 14-5 record with a 3.91 earned-run average last season.
The second overall selection in the 2010 MLB draft has had a troubling injury history including multiple Tommy John surgeries and a hernia surgery, which has limited his time on the field.
Tallion has a career 51-35 record with a 3.84 ERA split between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Yankees.
The 6-foot-5 right-handed pitcher is from Lakeland, Fla., and played for Canada in the 2013 World Baseball Classic due to his dual citizenship.
