ESPNChicago.com is reporting that the Cubs have reached an agreement with the Pittsburgh Pirates that will send left-handed relief pitcher John Grabow to the Cubs.

The Cubs have been searching for bullpen help, specifically of the lefty variety, with Sean Marshall as their lone lefty in the pen.

Grabow has pitched well for the last-place Pirates this year, with a 3-0 record, a 3.42 ERA and 16 holds.

The MLB trade deadline expires Friday afternoon.
