Source: Cubs re-sign pitcher Lopez
The Chicago Cubs signed pitcher Rodrigo Lopez to a non-roster deal on Thursday, a major league source told ESPNChicago.com's Bruce Levine.
Lopez will earn $900,000 if he is on the major league roster or $235,000 if he is in the minor leagues, according to the source.
The 36-year-old right-hander was 6-6 with a 4.42 ERA in 26 games, including 16 starts for the Cubs last season. The Cubs acquired Lopez in a trade with the Atlanta Braves in May.
