2011 MLB Hot Stove: Chicago Cubs Sign Pitchers Andy Sonnanstine And Manny Corpas

The Cubs announced the signing of pitchers Andy Sonnanstine and Manny Corpas on Monday afternoon:

Cubs have agreed to terms RHP Manny Corpas and RHP Andy Sonnanstine on non-guaranteed split contracts for the 2012 season.

Sonnanstine spent the last five seasons with the Tampa Bay Rays, where he was used in both starting and relief pitching roles -- he started 32 games for the club in 2008 but has spent the bulk of the last two seasons in the bullpen. In 2011 he posted a 5.55 ERA, striking out 12 and walking 12 in 35.7 innings pitched. He also pitched 56 innings for the Durham Bulls, which is Tampa's AAA affiliate.

Corpas missed 2011 after undergoing Tommy John surgery, but he spent the five years prior with the Colorado Rockies. He has a career 3.93 ERA in the majors with 286 innings pitched.
