Cubs Sign So Taguchi

From ESPN.com

 

Taguchi gets a minor league deal with an invite to spring training. The deal calls for him to potentially $900,000 if he makes the club.

Taguchi is the kind of guy you see on playoff teams, however he'll be 40 this season and did not have a great 2008. This possibly is a guy to bring in to be Fukudome's buddy in spring training as well. I do imagine that he'll get a shot at making the big league team, however with Soriano, Fukudome, Johnson, Bradley and Gathright, the odds are not in his favor of making this team. On the other hand, if he's willing to go down to AAA, he's likely to get a few call-ups with the health issues of Soriano and Bradley.
