Cubs agree to $38 million, 3-year deal with righty Chatwood

CHICAGO (AP) The Chicago Cubs added to their rotation on Thursday, agreeing to a $38 million, three-year contract with right-hander Tyler Chatwood.

"We're certainly not done," president of baseball operations Theo Epstein said. "Obviously, the focus of the winter has been pitching. We need to continue to add to the rotation and retool the bullpen to a certain extent. This is one thing that we were able to accomplish before the winter (meetings) and that'll just help us focus on our remaining (goals)."

Chicago is pursuing Japanese outfielder and pitcher Shohei Ohtani and interested in retraining former NL Cy Young Award winner Jake Arrieta and closer Wade Davis, who became free agents.
