Cubs Sign Dave Bush

The Cubs signed Dave Bush to a minor league deal, according to Bruce Miles of the Daily Herald (on Twitter). The veteran right-hander will report to Triple-A Iowa this weekend.

Bush posted a 5.79 ERA with 5.5 K/9 and 2.2 BB/9 in 37 1/3 innings for the Rangers as a middle reliever and spot starter this year, before Texas designated him for assignment and eventually released him.

Pitching primarily out of the bullpen for the first time in his career, the 31-year-old saw his ground ball rate rise to 46.1% and his average fastball velocity increase to 87.6 mph. The Rangers had signed him to a minor league deal in January and he assured himself of a $1MM base salary by making the team out of Spring Training.
