Left-hander Drew Smyly agreed to a two-year contract to remain with the Chicago Cubs on Saturday.
Financial terms were not disclosed by the Cubs, however multiple media outlets reported the deal was worth a total of $19 million and has a mutual option for the 2025 season.
Smyly, 33, was 7-8 with a 3.47 ERA in 22 starts in his first season with the Cubs in 2022.
He is 53-47 with a 4.10 ERA and 922 strikeouts in 239 games (156 starts) over nine seasons with seven teams.
Smyly was a second-round pick by the Detroit Tigers in 2010 and won a World Series with the Atlanta Braves in 2021.
To make room for Smyly on the 40-man roster, right-hander Erich Uelmen was designated for assignment.
