- Todd Wellemeyer signed a non-guaranteed minor league deal worth $800,000 along with $400,000 in incentives. The last time Wellemeyer was effective was with the Cards but struggled last season posting a 3-5 record and a 5.68 ERA with the Giants.
- Fukudome could be traded but only if the Cubs eat 7 million of his contract.
- Levine expects the Cubs to sign Garza and Marmol to 3 year contracts.
- Levine said the Angels were never serious on Soriano but did not deny there was talks or interest from both parties.
- Levine says Jay and Brett Jackson have legitimate chances or getting called up this season. I say also look at Trey McNutt. He has some filthy stuff!
- According to my source and hinted by Levine, the Cubs are looking to sign a veteran back-up SS to come off the bench. Orlando Cabrera is a guy the Cubs are interested in but they have also been linked to Cristian Guzman, Willy Aybar, Juilo Lugo, and Felipe Lopez.
Until Next Time...
