Cubs Outright, Re-Sign Angel Guzman

The Cubs outrighted Angel Guzman and re-signed the pitcher after he cleared waivers, a major league source told ESPNChicago.com's Bruce Levine.  The two sides agreed to a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training.

The oft-injured right-hander underwent arthroscopic surgery to repair a career-threatening shoulder injury before the start of the season.  Guzman was expected to be the Cubs' right-handed setup man after his strong 2009 campaign.  The soon-to-be 29-year-old turned in a 2.95 ERA with 6.9 K/9 and 3.4 BB/9 in 55 games.

With Guzman back in the fold and Aramis Ramirez's 2011 option officially exercised, the club's 40-man roster stands at 37 players.
