Cubs hand fifth spot in rotation to Carlos Villanueva

Carlos Villanueva didn’t exactly impress in his 17 2/3 innings in the Cactus League, but the Cubs’ other options didn’t fare any better. That’s why, as Gordon Wittenmeyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports, the Cubs have given the fifth spot in the rotation to Villanueva. Villanueva posted a 5.60 ERA during the spring. Chris Rusin, one of his competitors, finished at 7.45...

Can Carlos Villanueva Start Effectively?

The Cubs agreed to terms with 29-year-old career swingman Carlos Villanueva on Wednesday. With Scott Baker‘s early season availability in question as he rehabs from April Tommy John surgery, Villanueva should have a chance at making the club’s opening day rotation. Villanueva showed promise in the rotation as myriad Blue Jays injuries opened a spot for him in Toronto. In his...

Carlos Villanueva’s contract and Edwin Jackson

The Cubs signed Carlos Villanueva to a contract last night. We didn't know the terms of the contract and I felt about the contract similarly to Myles. If I were a betting man, I'd say this is a one year deal for around $4.5 million, with an option year at $6 or so. That seems reasonable to me for a starter flier, and probably about as much as he could reasonably expect coming...

Cubs Sign Carlos Villanueva

http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2012/12/cubs-to-sign-carlos-villanueva.html The Cubs have reportedly signed Carlos Villanueva to an undisclosed deal.

I'm not sure what the contract is, but almost certainly...

Villanueva plans to start next year -- in Toronto or elsewhere

Carlos Villanueva has given the Toronto Blue Jays a decision to make. He has come out of the bullpen for the second season in a row to provide help in the rotation. This year, Toronto lost three starters in a span of four games in June. Do the Blue Jays want to use him in the rotation next season? They haven't said. And their decision could determine whether he comes back...
