Just spoke to Brian Cashman. Chad Gaudin is scheduled to join the team on Sunday. He’ll make only the prorated minimum for the rest of the season. He has a $2 million deal for this season, but the Cubs are on the hook for that beyond the minimum.

Cashman was talking to Kevin Towers about a deal before the deadline. But the Padres prioritized trading Jake Peavy and ran out of time. But once Gaudin cleared waivers, a deal was swiftly made.

“He gets his fastball up to 94, he has a good slider, he’s stretched out and can give us innings,” Cashman said. “This gives Joe (Girardi) more choices.”

Cashman said Sergio Mitre will stay in the rotation. But Gaudin is clearly here to offer an alternative.
