Cubs sign Villanueva: report

| No Comments | No TrackBacks


The Cubs are believed to be near announcing they have signed right-handed pitcher Carlos Villanueva to a two-year deal.
Team officials said no announcements were expected Thursday, but reports say Villanueva, 29, has agreed to a two-year, $10 million deal. The veteran pitcher who made 29 starts for the Toronto Blue Jays over two seasons had indicated he wanted a chance to remain a starter. He also made 42 relief appearances and had been a reliever with the Milwaukee Brewers.
The Cubs also are negotiating with right-hander Edwin Jackson, 29, who pitched for the Washington Nationals last season. He was with the White Sox in 2011.
