Cubs Attempt To Address Bullpen Issues

 

The Chicago Cubs have signed former Cleveland Indians closer Cody Allen to a minor league deal. Allen was assigned to the team’s training site in South Bend.

The Cubs’ bullpen struggled in the first week of the season. Closer Craig Kimbrel walked four batters and allowed two runs in his season debut Monday night. Right-hander Dillon Maples was optioned Thursday after he struggled in his first two appearances.
