MLB free agency: Cubs, Brewers sign former All-Stars in smart moves

Former Cubs lefthander Wade Miley pitches against the Reds during the first inning at Wrigley Field on Sept.  6, 2022.

Wade Miley, the posterboy of crafty lefties, is heading back to the Brewers, the team he pitched for in 2018.

The baseball year has begun rather quietly, at least compared to the frenetic pace of free agency last month.

As of this morning, the two most notable acquisitions this week came in the NL Central: the Cubs have agreed to a one-year, $720,000 deal with first baseman Eric Hosmer, and the Brewers and lefthander Wade Miley have agreed to a one-year, $4.5 million contract, which includes a mutual option for 2024. Both deals are pending physicals.
