TUESDAY: The Cubs have signed Gathright to a one-year deal, according to Carrie Muskat. The Chicago Sun-Times says it’s an $800K deal. The speedy outfielder has a career line of .263/.328/.304 in 1296 plate appearances. Perhaps the signing will lead to a trade of Felix Pie, who is out of options.
MONDAY: Word from WSCR 670 in Chicago is that the Cubs will sign outfielder Joey Gathright. We’ve heard the same from a source. Gathright, 28 in April, was non-tendered by the Royals on Friday.
