The Chicago Cubs exercised their 2022 club contract option on left-handed pitcher Wade Miley, whom they acquired off waivers from the Cincinnati Reds on Friday.
Miley, who turns 35 on Saturday, had a $10 million contract option.
In 2021, he had a 12-7 record and a 3.37 ERA in 28 starts for the Reds.
Miley spent two seasons in Cincinnati, and the Cubs become his eighth team.
He began his career in 2011 with the Diamondbacks and has appeared in 283 games (277 starts). He has a career record of 97-92 with a 4.15 ERA. In 1,581 innings, he has 1,252 strikeouts.
The Cubs have spots open in the starting rotation. Right-hander Zach Davies is now a free agent, and they released veteran Jake Arrieta in August.
