The right-hander would be depth for the depth.

The Cubs and Red Sox love to fight, Baseball American doesn’t love Gerardo Concepcion, Ozzie Guillen loves to talk, and I love cat sleepwear.
Landing the 19-year-old Cuban prospect could be a huge signing for the Chicago Cubs.
Brett Jackson, Javier Baez, and Anthony Rizzo make the cut, among other notable bits of information.
Where did that come from?
The Cubs may even be the favorite to land the youngster, and are willing to spend heavily to do it.
Cespedes and the Miami Marlins get closer and closer to nailing down a deal.
It’s like the ‘Song That Never Ends,’ except it’s a story. An annoying one. Like the song. Keith Law talks about Cubs prospects, and Carrie Muskat previews Spring Training.
The Marlins might not have even offered $40 million. Many teams are still in on Cespedes, the Cubs might be in on Edgar Renteria, and a couple big MLB decisions could come down this week.
Guillen praises Cespedes, but also calls him a gamble, and a player the Marlins don’t need. Also: does Cespedes have a six-year, $40 million offer from the Marlins?
He seems a little frustrated, so at least there’s that. Ozzie Guillen loves Carlos Zambrano, a few more guys show up in Mesa, and Dillon Maples is fluffy.
If nine-game packs were a bit too much, and you don’t want to wait for single-game tickets (March 9), here’s another option.
Jed Hoyer doesn’t sound overly committed to Alfonso Soriano or Matt Garza, and do the Cubs still have a good chance at Yoenis Cespedes?
Law is high on Anthony Rizzo, but not quite as high on Brett Jackson as others.
The Cubs spent big on a 19-year-old pitching prospect last week. Was it worth it? What do we know about Gerardo Concepcion?
