12/2 Cubs sign Kottaras

The Cubs signed catcher George Kottaras to a one-year, $1.075 million contract that includes incentives. The catcher, acquired last Tuesday from the Royals in a trade for cash considerations, made $1 million last season. He is projected to back up Welington Castillo behind the plate.

The Cubs have yet to announce whether they will tender contracts to their other arbitration eligible players. The list includes Darwin Barney, Jeff Samardzija and Daniel Bard.
