The Cubs have agreed to terms with free agent pitcher Jonathan Holder, the club announced Thursday.

He joins the team on a one-year $750,000 deal.

The former Yankees reliever spent the first five years of his major league career in New York. This past season Holder, 27, went 3-0 with a 4.98 ERA in 18 games. The Yankees non-tendered Holder’s contract earlier this month, and he joined a strong non-tender class in an offseason defined by financial uncertainty.

The Cubs had bullpen spots open, after Jeremy Jeffress, Andrew Chafin and Ryan Tepera (non-tendered) entered free agency this offseason.
