AP source: Cubs, RHP Taillon agree to 4-year contract

SAN DIEGO (AP) The Chicago Cubs have added Jameson Taillon to their rotation, agreeing to a four-year contract with the right-hander that is worth roughly $68 million.

A person familiar with the negotiations confirmed the deal to The Associated Press on Wednesday on condition of anonymity because it was pending a physical.

The Cubs haven't formally announced the move, but President of Baseball Operations Jed Hoyer said the team has been looking at Taillon for a long time.
