Cubs Make Stewart, Lim Signings Official; Beliveau DFA'd

Hannah Foslien

The Cubs made some news Monday. No, it's not a big deal. But it's something to discuss, at least.

There isn't much Cubs news to be had this Monday, so this will have to suffice, via press release from the team:

The Chicago Cubs and infielder Ian Stewart have agreed to terms on a one-year contract.  Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

To make room for Stewart on the 4O-man roster, left-handed pitcher Jeff Beliveau was designated for assignment.

Also, the Cubs made the signing of Korean righthander Chang-Yong Lim official, according to a tweet from Paul Sullivan:

None of this is earth-shattering news and all of it are things we've known about for several days. If the Cubs are to make any further roster changes before spring training, they'll have to make room via further DFA's, or multi-player deals. I'd assume that, if Beliveau clears waivers, he'll be invited to spring training.

Discuss, etc.
