One of the three top Cuban prospects this year, all of whom the Cubs are targeting.
Chicago Cubs Transactions
The 38-year-old gets an invite to Spring Training, where he’ll compete for a bullpen spot.
Corpas gets a non-roster invite to Spring Training instead. Swell.
He’ll head to Spring Training in the hopes of emerging as something more than “emergency depth.”
Jaramillo will compete with Steve Clevenger and Welington Castillo for a chance to back up Geovany Soto this year.
Garza is the only remaining unsigned arbitration-eligible player on the Cubs.
The Cubs’ catcher was in his second year of arbitration.
Live coverage of the Convention is proving difficult. Starlin Castro issues a statement, Matt Garza isn’t bothered by trade rumors, and Prince Fielder keeps coming up.

Camp Colvin is no more. Spring games on WGN, Matt Garza’s increased effectiveness, signing bonuses for Cuban signees, and several Cubs are excited for the future.
The move opens up a 40-man roster spot for Paul Maholm.
At first glance, this looks like a steal for the Cubs.
Wow. Big trade. The first baseman of the future is here.
Each utility player gets a minor league deal, and should provide the Cubs with some AAA depth.
Remember the fight about the 30 days’ pay the Cubs withheld from Zambrano? It’s settled.
