The Cubs added to their pitching depth Friday.

Chicago agreed to a minor league deal with left-handed starter Jaime Garcia, according to a report from the New York Post. Garcia was released by the Blue Jays earlier this week.

Garcia signed a one-year, $8 million contract with Toronto in February. He began the season in the starting rotation but struggled and was moved to the bullpen in July.

The 32-year-old veteran totaled a 3-6 record with a 5.93 ERA in 25 appearances for the Blue Jays. He holds a 3.84 ERA in his 10 MLB seasons.

The Cubs entered play Friday in first place of the National League Central with a 79-54 record.
