The Chicago Cubs remained quite on the busiest day in free agency Tuesday but they did complete Rick Renteria’s coaching staff when they named Eric Hinske their first base coach. In free agency, some of the biggest names signed with new teams: Jacob Ellsbury-New York Yankees, Jarrod Saltalamacchi-Miami Marlins, A.J. Pierzynski-Boston Red Sox, Detroit Tigers-Joe Nathan, and Dexter Fowlers was traded to the Houston Astros.
