Anderson agreed to a minor-league contract with the Blue Jays on Monday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.
The move is pending a physical, which could be an obstacle seeing as Anderson was on the 60-day disabled list earlier in the year with a back issue. If everything checks out with his physical, he'll likely start out with Triple-A Buffalo as he tries to work his way into the big-league rotation. Anderson struggled with the Cubs earlier in the year, posting an 8.18 ERA across six starts before landing on the disabled list.
Anderson was released by the Cubs on Wednesday, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.
The veteran left-hander was designated for assignment on July 26, and given his wealth of MLB experience, it comes as no surprise that he didn't accept the outright assignment. He'll look to latch on with a team in need of a back-end starter, although a minor-league contract may be more likely in his case given his rough 8.18 ERA in the Cubs' rotation this season.
