Cubs To Sign Alfredo Amezaga

The Cubs have agreed to sign Alfredo Amezaga to a minor league deal, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports tweets. The Sparta Group represents the 33-year-old utility player.

Amezaga appeared in 40 games with the Rockies and Marlins in 2011, playing short, second, third and both outfield corners. He posted a .182/.247/.195 line in 87 plate appearances, but owns a career line of .247/.307/.333 in nine seasons with the Angels, Rockies, Pirates and Marlins. His most productive years came from 2006-08, when he posted a .675 OPS as a super utility player in Florida.

If his best numbers were four years ago and consisted of a .675 OPS, I hope he likes Iowa.

At 33 Amezaga is looking pretty washed up. Can’t really see him providing anything meaningful besides AAA depth.
