Wada, 34 (35 in February), is set to hit the open market this offseason. Signed to a one-year, $4MM deal with Chicago in 2015, Wada only made seven starts and one relief appearance this past season. Overall, he posted a 3.62 ERA with 8.6 K/9 and 3.1 BB/9. In the year prior, the left-hander made 13 starts and pitched his way to a 3.25 ERA with 7.4 K/9 and 2.5 BB/9. Following a distinguished nine-year career in Japan, Wada signed a two-year, $8.15MM deal with the Orioles in December 2011, though he never threw as much as a pitch for the O’s thanks to Tommy John surgery.
Teagarden will not join the Cubs’ playoff roster, but he could be called upon in the event of an injury.
