Corey Koskie signs with Cubs
Corey Koskie’s comeback won’t just be limited to playing for Team Canada in the World Baseball Classic.
The Cubs announced Saturday that they had signed the former Twins third baseman to a Minor League contract for the ’09 season, which includes an invitation to Major League camp. Koskie is scheduled to report to Cubs camp in Mesa, Ariz. when Canada’s run in the Classic comes to an end.
Koskie had been working out on the back fields of the Twins Minor League complex in Fort Myers, Fla. recently to get ready for Team Canada.
