Cubs ink Felipe Paulino to minor-league deal

The Cubs are searching for pitching help and turned outside the organization Monday for another potential option.

The Cubs reportedly inked right-hander Felipe Paulino to a minor-league deal, Monday.

Paulino, 31, signed a one-year deal with the White Sox last season, but was rocked in four starts on the South Side to the tune of an 11.29 ERA and 2.56 WHIP in 18.1 innings.

Paulino has previously pitched with the Houston Astros, Colorado Rockies and Kansas City Royals. He sports a career 13-34 record with a 5.22 ERA in 97 big-league games (65 starts).

The Dominican native last had success in the majors with the Royals in 2012 when he was 3-1 with a 1.67 ERA and 39 strikeouts in 37.2 innings.
