David DeJesus signed a two-year deal with the Chicago Cubs.
Outfielder David DeJesus and the Chicago Cubs agreed to a $10 million, two-year contract.
The deal announced Wednesday includes a 2014 club option.
A.284 hitter in nine years with Kansas City and Oakland, DeJesus batted just .240 in his lone season with the Athletics.
Even so, he gives the Cubs versatility in the outfield and a reliable glove.
What the article ignores is David’s career .356 OBP. He had a down year in 2011, but there’s reason to believe he’ll bounce back. Even his “poor” 2011 was worth $10 million according to FanGraphs, so the new regime in Chicago already picked up some value cheap.
