CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Cubs have agreed to a one-year contract with former Minnesota Twins pitcher Scott Baker that guarantees $5.5 million next season.

The veteran right-hander could earn an additional $1.5 million in performance bonuses. The Cubs announced the move Tuesday.

Baker was 63-48 with a 4.15 ERA with Minnesota from 2005-11. He underwent Tommy John ligament replacement surgery April 17 and missed last season after being limited to 23 appearances (21 starts) in 2011.
