MESA, Ariz. (AP) — Left-handed reliever Xavier Cedeno and the Chicago Cubs have agreed to a $900.000, one-year contract.

The deal is not guaranteed, meaning Cedeno could be released for termination pay before opening day.

The 32-year-old went 2-0 with a 2.43 ERA in 48 appearances last season. He began the year with the Chicago White Sox and was traded to Milwaukee on Aug. 31.

Lefty batters hit .207 against Cedeno last year.


Cedeno made his major league debut in 2011 with Houston. He is 10-7 with a 3.69 ERA in 249 career games for the Astros, Washington, Tampa Bay, White Sox and Brewers.

The Athletic was the first to report the move.
