Outfielder Clint Frazier has signed a new contract with the Chicago Cubs. The Cubs have signed Frazier to a one-year deal for a yet undisclosed amount of money. Frazier was a free agent after the Yankees released him in 2021.
ESPN’s Jesse Rogers reported the news via Twitter on Tuesday.

Frazier is a career .239 hitter with 29 home runs and 97 RBI to his name. He had previously played his entire career, which began in 2017, with the New York Yankees, who boast one of the most home run-friendly parks in the entire MLB.
With this deal and the signing of Yan Gomes, the Cubs are making interesting moves to start their rebuild which began at the trade deadline last season. Gone are key pieces of their World Series team like Javier Baez, Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant, which leaves outfield room for Frazier.
Stay tuned for more breaking MLB news, including free agency signings.
