Scott Baker Signs With Chicago Cubs

According to several sources (including MLB's), the Cubs have signed RHP Scott Baker to a one year contract.

Baker was drafted by the Twins as their 2nd round pick in 2003 out of Oklahoma State. He advanced quickly through the minor leagues and debuted with the Twins in mid-2005. In seven seasons with the Twins, he compiled a career record of 63-48 with a 4.15 ERA (102 ERA+).

Baker missed all of 2012 after having Tommy John surgery. As more information becomes available, be sure to discuss here. [PRBREAK][/PRBREAK]

Seen as cool and calm on the mound, he was often compared to Twins Hall of Famer Brad Radke. Others were often frustrated by Baker, wondering if he had any fire. Overall though, he had a very solid, very underrated career with the Twins.

UPDATE - According to sources, the deal is 1 year at $5.5 million PLUS incentives.
