The Cubs have signed 29-year old righty swinging IF/OF Brent Lillibridge to a minor league deal. He played in 102 games last year for the White Sox, Red Sox and Indians last year in which he was 37 of 190 (.195 avg, .524 OPS) with 25 runs scored, 3 homers, 10 RBIs and 13 stolen bases. Lillibridge has now played in 338 games in his first five years in the majors and he is 138 of 649 (.213 avg, .628 OPS) with 100 runs scored, 19 homers, 66 RBIs and 36 stolen bases. Lillibridge’s versatility in the field defensively might just help him win a bench job with the Cubs this spring.
