From the Wire….Cubs Avoid Arbitration with Wuertz

According to reports from the Sun-Times and the Daily Herald, the Cubs avoided arbitration on Tuesday with Michael Wuertz by agreeing to a one-year deal worth $1.1 million.

Michael Wuertz was the Cubs last arbitration eligible player for 2009.

After inking Reed Johnson, Neal Cotts and Chad Gaudin in December to one-year contracts, the Cubs locked up Ronny Cedeno, Kevin Gregg and Michael Wuertz in the last week.
