The Chicago Cubs are, for the most part, done making moves this offseason, but General Manager Jim Hendry has acknowledged that the team wouldn’t mind doing some tweaking, particularly in the bullpen. Specifically, the Cubs have been looking at veteran, righty relievers, and one named they’ve been tied to is Chan Ho Park.
Well, he could still be a possibility for the Cubs, according to Jon Heyman. Park turned down a one year, $3 million deal from the Phillies earlier this offseason, and you have to wonder if he regrets that now it appears he’ll have to settle for something less than that.
The Cubs likely view Park as an upgrade at the back-end of the pen, but also as a guy who can swing a start or two if necessary. Of course, Park was terrible as a starter last year, but was brilliant in the pen for the Phillies.
