Report: Left-hander Brett Anderson, Cubs agree to deal

Free-agent left-hander Brett Anderson has agreed with the Chicago Cubs on a deal, pending a physical, according to Fox Sports.

Anderson spent the past two seasons with the Los Angeles Dodgers. He is just 28 but is coming off his second back surgery in three years, having undergone an arthroscopic procedure during spring training last year. He was limited to just four appearances, and three starts, with the Dodgers this past season, registering an 11.91 ERA in 11 1/3 innings.

Anderson's physical will be critical to his deal with the Cubs due to his injury history, according to Fox Sports.

He was coming off a career-best 180 1/3 innings for the Dodgers in 2015, going 10-9 with a 3.69 ERA in 31 starts that season, in addition to one outing in the postseason.
