The Cubs have signed pitcher Casey Fossum to a minor league contract, and he’ll be pitching soon for the Iowa Cubs. There was a time when Fossum was a tip top prospect, and moderately successful major league pitcher. Of course, that time was seven years ago, but let’s not be jerks about it.

Fossum will provide left-handed bullpen support should the Cubs need it.
