Per Mike Rodriguez, fan-favorite right-handed reliever Pedro Strop signed a minor league contract with the Cubs on Wednesday. Strop will have the chance to make the major league squad with the invite to Spring Training.

It remains to be seen if Strop has anything left in the tank but it will be fun to see that personality back at Sloan Park this spring.
