Millar agrees to minor league deal with Cubs

February 02, 2010|By Chicago Tribune

The Chicago Cubs are bringing former Oriole Kevin Millar to spring training on a minor league deal with no guaranteed money, team sources told the Chicago Tribune on Monday.

Millar, 38, will compete for a job as a backup first baseman and pinch-hitter.

He batted .223 with seven home runs and 29 RBIs in 78 games with the Toronto Blue Jays last year.

ESPN.com first reported the imminent signing Monday, after receiving word from Millar.

In an e-mail to ESPN.com, Millar said: "I'm excited to have a chance to compete for a spot with the Cubbies. I have a lot of buddies on that team."
