He was pretty much crossed off yesterday, but now you can officially cross Aaron Harang off the Cubs’ list, as he’s signed with the Padres for one year, and about $3 million.

Of all the reclamation/middle-tier type pitchers the Cubs were on so far this Winter, Harang is the first that stings a little. Not because he’s so excellent, but because he signed for just $3 million. Even with his recent decline, it’s hard to see him not living up to the value of that contract.
