Gulfport alum Jonathan Holder reaches deal with Chicago Cubs

GULFPORT, Miss. (WLOX) - Former Gulfport standout Jonathan Holder reached a deal with the Chicago Cubs on Thursday after being non-tendered by the New York Yankees on December 2.

Holder began to find his groove at the start of the 2020 season, striking out 14 batters and posting a 2.08 ERA in his first 16 appearances.

If he can begin the 2021 season how he did last year, the Cubs bullpen will be in good hands.
