Cubs Reportedly Sign Righty Ryan Meisinger to a Minor League Deal

Chicago Cubs

In the latest roundup of minor league transactions, Baseball America reports that the Cubs have signed righty Ryan Meisinger to a minor league deal.

That’s a nice no-risk surprise, as Meisinger is a 26-year-old righty who has been right there at the cusp of big league effectiveness for a while now. He was most recently with the Cardinals, after coming up as an Orioles prospect:

Clearly, Meisinger is plenty capable of pitching very well at Triple-A, and now it’s just a matter of getting over the next hump. Always good to get guys like that in the organization on a minor league deal.

Like so many signings of this type, the Cubs likely think they can unlock an extra level in Meisinger by bringing him into the pitching infrastructure. You can’t take too many swings like this, and if nothing else, it’s more depth at Triple-A/the alt site for early in the year.
