According to the Associated Press, the Cubs agreed to terms with Bobby Howry on Wednesday night. Howry signed a 3-year, $12 million dollar contract. Howry spent the last two seasons with the Cleveland Indians and appeared in 79 games in 2005, posting a 7-4 record with a 2.47 ERA. He allowed only four home runs in 73 innings. Howry becomes the second reliever to sign with the Cubs this off-season.
