Cubs sign Ryan Roberts

1 Comment

Ryan Roberts, who struggled for the past two years with the Rays after a couple nice seasons for the Diamondbacks, has agreed to a minor-league deal with the Cubs.

Roberts got a late start, securing his first extended action in the majors at age 28, and he’s a career .245 hitter with a .713 OPS that makes him a better bench option than a regular.

He has experience at third base, second base, and left field, but will have to compete for a job during spring training.
