Cintron signs a minor league deal and other notes.

-The Cubs added some depth today by inking Alex Cintron to a minor league deal with an invite to camp. Cintron is a .277 lifetime hitter at 29 years old. He is coming off an elbow surgery and could be the backup middle infielder if Cedeno is traded or starts in Iowa. Lou seems to think he will be the utility infielder next season, that to me says Cedeno won't be on the 25 man roster.

-Among the other pitchers who threw Monday were Carlos Zambrano, Rich Hill, Kerry Wood, Jon Lieber, Jason Marquis, Bob Howry and Ted Lilly.

- Aramis Ramirez is the only regular position player yet to work out and he will there today, if he is not already there.

- Lou thinks that Cotts could be in the mix for the other lefty in the pen.
