If You Can’t Beat ‘Em….Cubs Interested in Randy Johnson

According to a report from Ken Rosenthal ,the Cubs are interested in signing free-agent southpaw Randy Johnson. Johnson filed for free agency on Thursday after he could not agree to a new contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks. The future Hall of Famer is five wins shy of 300 for his career and made $16 million dollars last season. ‘The Big Unit‘ posted an 11-10 record with a 3.91 ERA and a 1.24 ERA a year ago for Arizona.

Randy Johnson has never lost to the Cubs organization in 14 starts. He is 13-0 lifetime with a 1.84 ERA and a 0.97 WHIP….and is 4-0 lifetime at Wrigley in 5 starts with a 1.00 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP.

Johnson posted a very impressive 5-3 record for the Diamondbacks in 13 second half starts with a 2.41 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP.

Stay tuned….
