Bryan LaHair is a Chicago Cub

Today the Chicago Cubs signed first-baseman Bryan LaHair to a minor league deal, and invited him to spring training.

LaHair, 27, had spent his entire professional career with Seattle. He didn’t appear in the majors last year, and the Mariners removed him from their 40-man roster in October.

But he has experience in the majors: 45 games in 2008, during which he batted .250 with three home runs and 10 RBIs. LaHair, a left-handed hitter, posted a .289/.354/.530 line at Class AAA Tacoma in 2009. FOX Sports on MSN.

LaHair will compete for a spot on the Cubs’ bench, after falling off as a big-time prospect with the Mariners as recently as a few years ago.
