Milton Bradley Signs With Cubs

THURSDAY: The Cubs' three-year, $30MM deal with Bradley was finalized today.

TUESDAY: Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times says the deal could be announced Thursday.  He adds:

His new contract is believed to contain language that protects the team on the back end of the deal if Bradley misses significant playing time on the front end.

MONDAY, 3:10pm: According to ESPN Radio's Bruce Levine, the Cubs signed Milton Bradley to a three-year, $30MM contract "with some options in the deal."  Ken Rosenthal has a similar story, noting that the two sides have to "work through language issues." 

Bradley, 31 in April, had a monster .321/.436/.563 line this year for the Rangers, but he spent only 165 innings in the field.  This is the first multiyear deal of his career.  If he stays healthy, the switch-hitter will give the Cubs balance in the middle of their order.

The Rangers will get a supplemental pick for their loss.
