Cost-friendly moves make sense
CHICAGO – The Cubs’ offseason strategy has, so far, been exactly what the organization needed coming off a 101-loss season.
Ignoring any urges to spend lavishly, the Cubs wisely invested in short-term deals with team-friendly money. They added another cost-efficient piece Friday, officially announcing the signing of Japanese reliever Kyuji Fujikawa. The 32-year-old right hander signed a two-year, $9.5 million contract with a vesting/club option for the 2015.
“You look at the track record of guys that have pitched in the bullpen and come over here, it’s very good,” general manager Jed Hoyer said. “Obviously, he’s been one of the best relievers in Japan for a long time. We’re optimistic.”
