Coleman signed a minor-league contract with the Cubs on Thursday and was assigned to Triple-A Iowa, the Des Moines Register reports.
ANALYSIS
Coleman had been pitching for the Sugar Land Skeeters of the independent Atlantic League, recording an 0.96 ERA in seven games (six starts). The 31-year-old last pitched at the major-league level in 2014 and has a career 5.72 ERA in 177.2 big-league innings, but he could now be just an injury or two away from an emergency call-up.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2015
2013
2012
2011
The Royals gave Coleman a fresh start when they signed him to a minor league deal in April of 2014, and the right-hander provided the organization a strong presence in the bullpen at Triple-A Omaha in 2014. He uses a slider and fastball that approaches the mid-90s (on a good day) to get hitters out, but has yet to show consistent production at the major league level. Coleman's 2.15 ERA in the minors last season may seem impressive at first glance, but a 4.10 FIP and 81.5% strand rate suggest that number may not have been truly reflective of his performance. Nonetheless, his solid relief work earned him a September callup last season, and he proceeded to post a 6.48 ERA over six appearances on the month. Outrighted from the 40-man roster, he'll face an uphill battle to return to the big leagues in Kansas City.
Coleman has been knocked around more often than not both in the majors and high minors the last few seasons, so it's hard to see him earning a significant role in 2013. Perhaps if things go south in the team's rotation again, Coleman can eat some innings, but poor command and an average fastball should keep him away from your team. He'll open the season back at Triple-A Iowa after being outrighted from the 40-man roster in November.
Coleman got knocked around for most of the year as a spot starter. His peripherals weren't as bad as the results (75 strikeouts in 84.1 IP, 1.35 GB/FB rate), but with control problems (46 walks) and a fastball that averages less than 90 mph, he profiles as a back-end starter at best. Entering spring training, his opportunity to break camp as a starter may hinge entirely on the other personnel the Cubs have at their disposal coming Opening Day.
Coleman pitched passably as a rookie last year, keeping the ball on the ground and in the park. But his 27:25 K:BB ratio in 57 innings pitched makes him an innings-eating back-end starter at best, assuming he manages to secure the last slot in the team's rotation.
