The Cubs signed four players to minor league deals Thursday, including left-hander Jonathan Sanchez, who will compete for a bullpen spot. Also signed were left-handers Tsuyoshi Wada and Tommy Hottovy, and outfielder Mitch Maier. Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro has a lawsuit filed in the Dominican Republic by a former youth coach, who’s claiming breach of contract over money promised by Castro’s father, according to published reports.
