The Cubs signed reliever Cody Allen to a minor league deal on Friday after he was released by the Rangers recently. Allen, 31, was the closer on the Cleveland Indians when they faced the Cubs in the World Series in 2016 but he has struggled over the past couple seasons. He compiled a 6.26 ERA in his last major league stint, for the Angels last year. The Cubs have all sorts of middle relief issues so Allen could find his way to Wrigley Field eventually.
