- The Cubs have signed righty Shae Simmons to a minor league deal, USA Today’s Bob Nightengale reports (Twitter link). The deal will pay Simmons $750K if he cracks Chicago’s Major League roster. Simmons underwent Tommy John surgery in February 2015 and has since been plagued by setbacks and other injuries, limiting him to just 14 1/3 IP total in 2016-17. The Mariners non-tendered Simmons in December.
