Taguchi after the 2006 World Series The Cubs have reportedly signed former Cardinals’ outfielder So Taguchi to a Minor League contract.  Last year Taguchi played on the World Series Champion Philadelphia Phillies.

According to the Cubs official website , the team will announce its non-roster invitees next week.  Reports say Taguchi will earn $900,000 if he makes the team in Spring Training.

Taguchi is the latest former Cardinal to join the Cubs in the last couple of seasons.  Jason Marquis, Jim Edmonds, and most recently Aaron Miles have been players who donned the Birds on Bat, in favor of the Cubbie blue pinstripes.

Taguchi is a career .279 hitter and will turn 39 in July.
