Cubs Sign Enrique Acosta

The Cubs have signed Dominican shortstop Enrique Acosta, according to Ben Badler of Baseball America.  Acosta's signing bonus is said to be worth $1.1MM.

Acosta, at 6-foot-1 and 180-pounds, is considered to have one of the top bats this year in Latin America.  It seems likely that the right-handed hitter will move from shortstop; possibly to a corner outfield spot or third base.
