Manny Corpas signs with the Cubs


The Yankees were in talks earlier this month with right handed reliever Manuel Corpas, who missed all of last season with Tommy John Surgery, but Corpas signed a deal with the Cubs yesterday.

The deal was a major league deal which is probably why the Yankees didn’t last him as they were likely offering a minor league deal only as is their style with relievers like this. According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the Texas Rangers also offered him a major league contract so in the end, the Yankees probably weren’t even close.
