Cubs Add Submarining Righty Eric Yardley on Minors Deal

According to the team’s transaction log, the Cubs have added 31-year-old righty Eric Yardley on a minors deal as they continue looking for bullpen depth even during the lockout. Yardley, who has a submarine-style delivery, spent most of his professional career in the Padres organization and made his MLB debut in 2019. He was designated for assignment later that year and was picked up by the Brewers, for whom he made 41 appearances over the last two seasons.

Cubs' Eric Yardley: Joins North Siders

Yardley appeared in 17 games for Milwaukee last season and posted a 6.75 ERA, and he ended up spending most of the campaign at the Triple-A level.

Brewers' Eric Yardley: Outrighted to Triple-A

Yardley was outrighted to Triple-A Nashville on Friday, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports. Yardley was a key bullpen piece for Milwaukee in 2020 with a 1.54 ERA in 24 appearances, but he struggled this season with a 6.75 ERA. The 31-year-old spent most of 2021 at Triple-A and won't be on the Brewers' 40-man roster during the offseason.

Eric Yardley: Elects free agency

Yardley elected free agency Friday instead of accepting an outright assignment to Triple-A Nashville. Yardley struggled to a 6.75 ERA in 18.2 major-league innings this season, striking out just five batters while walking 10. That performance will likely make it hard for him to find a major-league deal this offseason, though his 1.80 ERA in 35 innings over the previous two years could help him generate at least some interest.

Brewers reinstate Kolten Wong from IL, select Zack Godley from Nashville, option Pablo Reyes and Eric Yardley, and designate Jake Hager for assignment

Kolten Wong has been one of the Brewers most productive hitters so far this season. Unfortunately, a couple of injuries have put him on the IL, with the most recent one an oblique strain on June 4.
