Cubs sign Jason Jaramillo and Andy Sonnanstine

The Cubs have signed Jason Jaramillo and Andy Sonnanstine. Jaramillo, a 29 year old back-up catcher, has a little MLB experience and will fight it out to be Geovany Soto‘s back-up next year. Source: MLBTR.

The Cubs have also signed Andy Sonnanstine.

Jaramillo’s contract is a minor league one and I’m assuming the same is true for Sonnanstine. Both players will look to have strong performances in spring training and earn their way onto the roster. Sonnanstine has the much clearer path. They already have Welington Castillo and Steve Clevenger on the roster. Castillo will likely become the back-up and Jaramillo is probably nothing more than spring training roster filler.

Sonnanstine never reached the potential that many thought he could and after several years of not being any good the Rays finally cut him loose.
