It has been reported that the Cubs are poised to acquire utility man Jason Bourgeois from the Astros who was DFA about a week ago. Jason will most likely get a non-roster invitation to spring training to prove that he can play and be in the majors. He will not cost a lot because the Astros will be happy just to get something for him because after 10 days he becomes a free agent and then they get nothing for him. I say they will have to trade a low level prospect. He can play all OF spots, 3B, SS and 2B and most likely 1B but has never player there before. Jason is a 28 year old switch hitter who batted .316 in Triple A last year. He will be a nice addition and could depth in Triple A.
The Cubs have there eye on outfielders Jermaine Dye, Xaivier Nady and Reed Johnson. I would be in favor for all of them, they will come in to platoon with Kosuke and be the 4th outfielder.
The Cubs will be in attendance to watch P Ben Sheets throw on Tuesday. I just wish the Cubs do sign him.
Jim Hendry is trying to work out trades with the Padres, Blue Jays and Rockies. I just hope he does not over pay.
That is it for now but I will keep you posted.
