Minor League Free Agent Signings

Okay, guys, the Cubs have finally made those big free-agent signing everyone was waiting for!

...so maybe not.

But we did get:


  • RHP Cory Bailey
  • RHP Mike Smith
  • C J.D. Closser
  • C Danny Fatheree
  • SS Andres Blanco
  • OF Andres Torres
  • Baseball America likes Mike Smith, and says taht Andres Torres is a pretty good defensive center fielder. Arizona Phil of TCR goes into more detail on all of these guys.

    J.D. Closser is our consolation prize for losing out on the Jason LaRue sweepstakes. He's not a good hitter, necessarily, but he's amazingly cheap and will provide us with an alternative/backup to Koyie Hill coming out of Spring Training, which is important if you (like me) think that Henry Blanco is not a reliable commodity.

    And A. Blanco is Hendry's token middle infield pickup.
