The Chicago Cubs have made a pair of signings at baseball’s Winter Meetings, signing Drew Smyly and Brandon Morrow to contracts. Morrow, who reportedly agreed to the parameters of a deal with the Cubs last week, signed a two-year deal with a vesting option for a third year. Smyly agreed to a two-year contract, the team announced. Smyly, a starting pitcher who will likely compete for a role in the Cubs’ rotation, went 7-12 with a 4.88 ERA and 167 strikeouts in 30 starts for the Tampa Bay Rays last season. Smyly is familiar with pitching coach Jim Hickey, who served in that same role with the Rays last year.
