CHICAGO - Right-hander Trevor Williams has agreed to a one-year contract with the Chicago Cubs, giving the NL Central champions another option for the back end of their rotation.
A person familiar with the situation confirmed the deal to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the contract is pending a physical.
The 28-year-old Williams was designated for assignment by Pittsburgh after he went 2-8 with a 6.18 ERA in 11 starts during the pandemic-shortened season.
