The Chicago Cubs added a piece to their bullpen, signing free-agent right-hander Dan Winkler to a one-year, $750,000 deal, according to multiple reports. Winkler, 29, has an 8-2 record with a 3.68 ERA over parts of five seasons with the Braves in 117 games, all in relief. He posted a 3-1 mark last season in 27 appearances with a 4.98 ERA and still has one minor league option remaining.

Winkler was traded to the San Francisco Giants in a deadline-deal that sent right-hander Mark Melancon to Atlanta, but he outrighted off the Giants' 40-man roster one day later. The Cubs bullpen lost three right-handers: Pedro Strop, Steve Cishek and Brandon Kintzler. The Cubs originally drafted Winkler in the 43rd round in 2010 but he did not sign.
