Cross Javier Vazquez Off the List

Chicago Cubs Rumors, MLB News and Rumors

If you hadn’t crossed him off already, today, Javier Vazquez signed a one-year deal with the Florida Marlins, according to Jon Morosi. This move had been expected for a little over a week now, so it’s no surprise. We can wait on the financial details to pass judgment, but I suspect that Vazquez got a healthy one-year guarantee from the Marlins at a rate the Cubs simply couldn’t afford.

The middle tier starting pitchers are flying off the rack, so the Cubs may have to settle on a high-risk reclamation project like Brandon Webb or Erik Bedard if they’re going to sign a starting pitcher at all.
