Cubs Sign Xavier Nady

The Cubs have completed their second off season objective today. They have signed former Pittsburgh Pirate and New York Yankee outfielder Xavier Nady to one-year contract. Nady will backup all three outfield positions.

This will end any chance of Reed Johnson being resigned. He will be most remembered for his spectacular diving catch against the Nationals in 2008. Nady played in only seven games last season with the Yankees before going on the disabled list. His season would end after he would under go the second Tommy John surgery of his career.
