Andury Acevedo

The Cubs signed Andury Acevedo to a minor league contract in November 2015 and he has been with the organization since.

Acevedo spent much of his time with the Tennessee Smokies last year but missed most of the season with a torn ACL. The 25-year-old re-signed with the Cubs this offseason, hoping he can remain healthy all year. Acevedo did not get into any games during the spring so far and will likely start the season at Double-A. He provides depth for the Cubs should injury arise, but he’s likely not going to make the big league roster at any point in 2017.
