Baseball’s winter meetings ended Thursday with no big signings or mega-trades, going down as one of the least interesting in recent memory. The Chicago Cubs acquired right-handed hitting outfielder Justin Ruggiano from the Marlins for left-handed hitting outfielder Brian Bogusevic and three players to minor-league deals: catcher Charles Cutler in Rule 5 draft and left-handers Tsuyoshi Wada and Tommy Hottovy.
