Marcus Stroman and the Cubs have agreed to a deal as the MLB lockout looms, according to multiple reports.
Stroman enjoyed a career season with the Mets in 2021, pitching to a 3.02 ERA across a league-high 33 starts, a significant showing after opting out of the 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The righty struck out 158 batters across 179 innings, while walking just 44.
New York likely won’t be in play for the 2019 All-Star after signing Max Scherzer to a record three-year, $130 million deal.
UPDATE: Stroman seemed to confirm the news on Wednesday night via Twitter.
