Cubs Sign Two Minor League Free-Agents

Baseball America reports that the Cubs have signed Rule 55 second-contract minor league free-agent RHSP (ex-LAA) and Rule 55 minor league 6YFA LHP to 2016 minor league contracts. 

Both will be eligible for selection in next month's Rule 5 Draft, although it's not likely that Rucinski would get picked because he was not claimed off waivers when he was outrighted in September, and the only way Antigua gets claimed is if the Cubs placed him on the AA Tennessee reserve list, which would make him eligible for selection in the AAA Phase of the draft ($12,000 draft price with no roster restrictions and no chance to be re-claimed).

Cubs Add Four to 40-Man Roster

The Cubs selected the contracts of four minor league players today (all four from AA Tennessee), adding 3B , C , RHSP , and 1B to their MLB Reserve List (40-man roster), and thus insuring that the foursome will not be eligible for selection in next month's Rule 5 Draft.

So what exactly is the Rule 5 Draft?

Baseball Writers Awards

Update: Bryant, Maddon, and Arrieta (!) bring it home.

This is the week the BBWAA gets to announce its winners for the 2015 season.

Bryant seems to be a lock for NL ROY (Monday), Maddon is likely to win Manger of the Year (Tuesday), and Arrieta is probably going to come up a bit short for the NL Cy Young (Wednesday). Unfortunately, HBP doesn't carry much weight, or Rizzo would have a real shot at the MVP (Thursday).
