Cubs to Sign Mark DeRosa

Tuesday, November 14, 2006

A report coming from, the Cubs are close to signing Mark DeRosa to a three year, 13 million dollar deal. DeRosa batted .296 with 13 home runs and 74 RBIs while playing six positions for the Rangers last season. He is expected to be the regular second baseman for the Cubs. This is a great signing for the Cubs who are in need of an everyday second baseman while Ronny Cedeno and Ryan Theriot can mature.


Also, the Cubs have talked with the Cleveland Indians about Cliff Lee and Jake Westbrook in exchange for a reliever.
