Cubs Sign Bush to Minor League Deal
CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago Cubs have agreed to a minor-league deal with veteran pitcher Dave Bush.

The right-hander was designated for assignment by Texas earlier this month and cleared unconditional release waivers last week, making him a free agent.

He made three starts and 17 appearances for the Rangers, going 0-1 with a 5.79 ERA. He is 56-69 with a 4.70 ERA over eight seasons in a career that includes stops in Toronto and Milwaukee.

The Cubs announced the move on Friday.
