Cubs add bullpen depth, sign left-handed reliever Xavier Cedeno

In need of another left-handed option out of the bullpen, the Chicago Cubs signed reliever Xavier Cedeno, the team announced Thursday.

Cedeno, 32, went 2-0 with a 2.43 ERA and 34 strikeouts in 33⅓ innings last season for the Chicago White Sox and Milwaukee Brewers, who acquired him in a trade on Aug. 31.

The Cubs will be the sixth team for Cedeno, an eight-year veteran who also has pitched for the Houston Astros, Washington Nationals and Tampa Bay Rays.
