CHICAGO -- Todd Wellemeyer has returned to the Chicago Cubs.

According to a report from ESPNChicago, the Cubs and the veteran right-hander agreed upon a one-year, $800,000 Minor League contract. Wellemeyer could earn up to $400,000 in incentives, according to the same report.

Wellemeyer posted a 3-5 record with a 5.68 ERA as part of the San Francisco Giants' World Series run in 2010, starting in 11 of his 13 appearances. The 32-year-old has made 75 of his 93 appearances as a starting pitcher over the past four years, including 32 starts for the Cardinals in 2008, when he finished 13-9 with a 3.71 ERA.

Prior to that stretch, all 115 of his career appearances had come out of the bullpen. That total includes 57 with the Cubs from 2003-05.
