The Cubs have added depth to their minor league system by signing right handed pitcher Jonathan Pettibone.

Pettibone, 25, missed the entire 2015 season after undergoing multiple shoulder surgeries. He will receive an invitation to spring training but figures to start the 2016 season at the minor league level for the Cubs.

Pettibone made two starts for the Phillies back in 2014 and 18 in 2013. Overall he owns a career 5-5 record to go with a 4.46 ERA and a 1.53 WHIP.

While the Cubs will hope to avoid seeing Pettibone spend an expanded amount of time at the big league level his signing does give them further depth should injuries strike their rotation.
