Cubs signed OF Nate Schierholtz to a one-year, $2.25 million contract.

The deal was announced over two weeks ago and has finally become official. He can also earn $500,000 more in incentives. Schierholtz has posted an uninspiring .270/.319/.409 batting line over six seasons but is expected to start in right field, with David DeJesus handling center until Brett Jackson is deemed ready.
