Schierholtz, Cubs finalize one-year deal
- Updated: December 21, 2012
Just one day after signing right-hander Edwin Jackson, the Chicago Cubs have added yet another piece to their puzzle. It has been reported by MLB.com that the Cubs and outfielder Nate Schierholtz have made on a one-year deal official. The 28-year-old outfielder will be paid $2.25MM with a possible $250,000 performance-based bonus.
Schierholtz, 28, posted a .257/.321/.407 batting line last season while playing with both the Giants and the Phillies. Schierholtz only hit 6 home runs in 269 plate appearances in 2012, but played stellar defense; only making one error in 533.1 innings.
You can expect to see Schierholtz in the Cubs’ Opening Day lineup, most likely in the 2-hole according to Rotochamp.com
