Lackey, who turned 37 in October, is coming off a 13–10 season for the St. Louis Cardinals with a 2.77 ERA after starting a career high 33 games. His 218.0 innings were the second most of his career since pitching 224.0 in 2007.

Lackey is entering his 14th season in the majors. The Cubs will be the fourth team that he has pitched for in his career after spending time with the Angels, Red Sox and Cardinals.
