Cubs Sign Doug Davis

12:55pm: Davis will earn a $900K pro-rated salary in the Majors, tweets Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, with the chance to earn close to $2MM with incentives.

12:21pm: The Cubs have signed Davis, tweets Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times.  The lefty will head to extended Spring Training.  Wittenmyer suggests the signing was done to provide "longer-term depth."

10:39am: The Cubs are close to signing free agent lefty Doug Davis to a minor league deal, MLBTR has learned.  The contract will include some kind of opt-out.  The team is in need of rotation depth given the recent injuries to Randy Wells and Andrew CashnerThey added Ramon Ortiz on a minor league deal a few days ago.

Davis, 35, made only eight starts with the Brewers last year due to a heart condition and eventual surgery to fix a small tear in the flexor tendon of his elbow.  At his best, Davis can eat up innings and work around the many baserunners he allows.
