The Chicago Cubs have signed 36-year old righty reliever Chang-Yong Lim to a 2-year split contract (pays him more for pitching in the majors than the minors). He had Tommy John Surgery last July, so he might not be ready to pitch for the Cubs until 2014. Lim pitched in 9 games (0 starts) in Japan last year and he was 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP. In his five years pitching in Japan, Lim pitched in 238 games (0 starts) in which he was 11-13 with 128 saves, a 2.09 ERA and a 1.03 WHIP. It will be interesting to see how Lim does in the majors, as he has been pretty darn good in Japan.
