1-yr $1mm with another $1mm in incentives. Best move they made all year, which isn't saying a lot.

At $1M per, it's quite a deal. If he can return healthy, he would be a solid #4 or #5 guy in that rotation.

He's done. Too many injuries to be of any use.

As a Cubs fan, I love this signing. The guy is getting great health reports and is said to be back full strength in early May. Nice job Hendry.

If he can come back & give them some quality starts he'll be a steal for the money.

I like it. He's worth a shot and there's almost no risk if it plays out like it did last year. I was hoping the Mets would take a shot on him.
