Pannone signed a minor-league contract with the Cubs on Monday that includes an invitation to spring training, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.
Pannone made one appearance with the Brewers in 2023 before finishing the season in Korea. The 29-year-old left-hander holds a career 5.46 ERA over 50 appearances (13 starts) across parts of three seasons in the majors.

Pannone signed a one-year, $350,000 contract Thursday with the Kia Tigers of the Korea Baseball Organization.
Pannone inked his deal with the KBO club one day after being granted his release from the Brewers, who had designated him for assignment last week. The 29-year-old southpaw made one relief appearance for the big club before being dropped from the Brewers' 40-man roster, but he was productive in a starting role at Triple-A Nashville this season, logging a 2.70 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 50:13 K:BB in 53.1 innings. He'll now head overseas on what's a much more lucrative deal than the minor-league contract he had been playing under in the Milwaukee organization.... See More ... See Less

Thomas Pannone: Headed to KBO
The Red Sox granted Pannone his release from his minor-league contract Monday, with the left-hander planning to sign a deal with the Korea Baseball Organization's Kia Tigers, Joe McDonald of the Worcester Telegram & Gazette reports.
Pannone hadn't appeared in the big leagues since the 2019 season and wasn't in line for a call-up to Boston at any point in the near future, so he'll head overseas on what's presumably a more lucrative contract. In 14 appearances (12 starts) for Triple-A Worcester this season, Pannone contributed a 4.57 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 70:8 K:BB across 63 innings.... See More ... See Less

The 27-year-old lefty previously made 49 appearances (13 starts) at the big-league level with Toronto between the 2018 and 2019 seasons, but he's pitched exclusively in the minors ever since....

Angels' Thomas Pannone: Joining Angels for camp
Pannone signed with the Angels as a non-roster invitee Thursday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Pannone has thrown 116 career innings at the highest level but hasn't had much success, posting a 5.43 ERA. He failed to make an appearance last season for the Blue Jays. Being left-handed gives him an easier path to a bullpen role, but if he does win a job it will likely be a low-leverage position.... See More ... See Less

The Blue Jays included Pannone as part of their 60-man roster pool that was announced Sunday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
The lefty has made 13 starts for Toronto across the past two seasons, but with the Blue Jays including a number of starting options among their roster pool, expect him to work exclusively as a reliever or opening pitcher in 2020. The southpaw has posted a career 5.43 ERA over 116 innings at the big-league level.... See More ... See Less

Blue Jays' Thomas Pannone: Will work out of bullpen

The lefty worked as a starter in 13 of his 49 appearances with Toronto the past two seasons, but the 25-year-old looks like he'll be making the full-time transition to relief after finding success in that capacity in 2019.

Pannone (3-6) allowed three runs on four hits with no walks or strikeouts in one inning while taking a loss against the Orioles on Tuesday.
The 25-year-old hadn't recorded six outs in any of his last five appearances before Tuesday, so he was never expected to last long in this one, but giving up three runs wasn't part of the plan. This outing snapped a six-inning shutout streak for Pannone and stuck him with his sixth loss. He is 3-6 with a 6.19 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 68 strikeouts in 72.2 innings this season.... See More ...
