Another day, another minor league deal and Spring Training invite.
This to former Chicago Cub rumor target, pitcher Braden Looper. You
may recall that the Cubs expressed some interest in Looper last year,
before he ultimately sat out the 2010 season. He was pretty rough in
2009 – 5.22 ERA as a starter for the Brewers – but he’s theoretically
healthy and will get a shot (as much of a shot as any non-roster
invitee gets) to make the Cubs’ bullpen as a long man.
