AP source: Sidearm reliever Cishek, Cubs reach 2-year deal

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) A person familiar with the negotiations says side-arming reliever Steve Cishek and the Chicago Cubs have agreed to a two-year contract.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday because the deal was subject to a successful physical and had not been announced.

A 31-year-old right-hander, Cishek had a 2.01 ERA and a 3-2 record in 49 relief appearances this year for Seattle and Tampa Bay, which acquired him on July 28. He would join rejoin a rebuilt Cubs bullpen that includes right-hander Brandon Morrow, who finalized a $21 million, two-year contract on Tuesday.
