Cubs Sign a Number of Players Including Brian Bogusevic

Per Matt Eddy of Baseball America the Cubs have signed four players to minor league deals today, most notably Brian Bogusevic.  The Cubs also signed infielder Alberto Gonzalez who appeared in 24 games with the Rangers last season playing all over the infield.  Right fielder Johermyn Chavez was also signed, he spent the majority of 2012 in the Mariners organization at the Double-A level.  Catcher J.C. Boscan was also given a minor league contract today, Boscan appeared in six games with the Braves this past season.

Bogusevic is the only name you might actually know out of all these guys.  A 2005 first round pick, Bogusevic spent last season with the Houston Astros and appeared in 146 games.  His numbers weren’t really much to write home about but he will be in the competition to earn a spot coming off the bench next year for the Cubs.
