Cubs agreed to terms with third baseman Aramis Ramirez on a one-year contract.
The Cubs want to sign Ramirez to a long-term deal before he becomes eligible for free agency next winter, so arbitration had to be avoided. He asked for $10.25 million and was offered $8 million.

Cubs agreed to terms with RHP Carlos Zambrano on a one-year contract.
Zambrano asked for $3.3 million and was offered $4 million in arbitration. Although he was the Cubs' best pitcher last season, he probably won't start until the third or fourth game of this year

Cubs signed first baseman-third baseman Dave Hansen to a minor league contract and invited him to spring training.
Hansen hit .245/.367/.349 in 106 AB while being used mostly as a pinch-hitter by the Padres last season. He's still a decent use of a roster spot, but the Cubs won't have room for him unless they opt to drop Jose Macias now that they have Jerry Hairston Jr.
