The Chicago Cubs have made another move to try to bolster the depth in their bullpen as they signed lefty Michael Roth to a minor league deal with a spring training invite.

If he makes the big league roster, he will get paid $560,000. In 2017, he had a 4.84 ERA in 111 2/3 innings in the minors. The 27-year old journeyman has been with the organizations of the Angels, Indians, Giants, Rangers, and Rays over the last three years.

For his short MLB career, he has an 8.50 ERA and 29 strikeouts in 36 total innings.

He was selected by the Angles in the ninth round (#297th overall) in the 2012 MLB draft.
