The Chicago Cubs' lefty-heavy lineup will get some right-handed hitting help, as the club has agreed to a one-year deal with outfielder Chris Denorfia, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

Denorfia appeared in a career-high 144 games in 2013 with the San Diego Padres, slashing .279/.337/.395 with 10 home runs, but regressed significantly last season. After hitting .242/.293/.319 in 89 games, the Padres traded him to the Seattle Mariners, where things worsened as Denorfia posted a .195 average in 82 at-bats.

Capable of playing all three outfield positions, the 34-year-old provides a decent platoon option for the Cubs. Throughout his nine-year career, Denorfia is hitting .292/.358/.420 in 823 at-bats against left-handed pitching.
