Cubs sign Jason Heyward

Reports say the Cubs have signed former Cardinal Jason Heyward eight years worth $184 million. Heyward has a bit of experience in center field playing a total of 32 games in center.

Heyward played in 154 games last season hitting .293 with 13 home runs and 60 RBIs.He also stole 23 bases last season. He is a 3 time Gold Glove winner winning in each of the last 2 seasons.

The Cubs have now signed two former Cardinals players this offseason. The Cubs could put Heyward in centerĀ field or let him play right field. If the Cubs decide to let him play right field we could see Soler traded soon. It is possible that Cubs give Arismendy Alcantara another chance to play center field next season.
