3/7 Cubs interested in Cuban pitcher
The Cubs are reportedly close to signing Cuban pitcher Armando Rivero. The Chicago Tribune reported that Rivero had been in Haiti awaiting a visa, but has joined the Cubs Minor League camp at Fitch Park. However, Cubs sources said Thursday a deal has not been finalized. Rivero, a right-hander, was a closer for the Industriales in Havana, pitching with Gerardo Concepcion, who signed with the Cubs last year.
