The Chicago Cubs have agreed with reliever Jose Veras on a one-year, $4 million deal, a source told's Enrique Rojas.

There is a $5.5 million option for 2015, the source said, along with incentives.

The Tigers declined a $3.25 million option on Veras in November.

The right-hander went 0-5 with a 3.02 ERA in 67 appearances with the Astros and Tigers this past season, but Detroit's bullpen was a problem in the team's AL Championship Series loss to Boston.
