Cubs get struggling reliever Fernando Rodney from Mariners

CHICAGO (AP) The playoff-contending Chicago Cubs acquired struggling reliever Fernando Rodney from the Seattle Mariners for cash Thursday, reuniting the exuberant closer with manager Joe Maddon.

The 38-year-old Rodney had been designated for assignment by Seattle last Sunday.

Rodney was 5-5 and had gone 16 for 22 in save chances this season. The right-hander had a 5.68 ERA in 54 games.
