Cubs Add Relief Pitcher Kimbrel

UNDATED (AP) -- The Chicago Cubs hope to be given a major hand by a strong new pitching arm.
Free-agent closer Craig Kimbrel has agreed to a three-year contract with the Cubs in a big move to strengthen Chicago's bullpen.
The team said Friday he passed his physical and will be optioned to Triple-A Iowa.
Even before the deal was announced Cubs manager Joe Maddon said he thought Kimbrel would be ready to pitch in about three weeks.
