Cubs sign pitcher Scott Baker to one-year deal

Scott Baker Scott Baker signed a one-year contract with the Cubs. Baker missed the 2012 season due to Tommy John surgery but is expected to be ready for 2013.

The Cubs signed pitcher Scott Baker to a one-year deal, reports CBS Sports.

The Cubs failed to trade for Brandon McCarthy, so instead they've gone the free-agent route and signed right-hander Scott Baker to a one-year deal, according to a release by the team.

The former Twins right-hander missed last season due to an elbow injury that required Tommy John surgery, but he is expected to be back for the 2013 season. Minnesota reportedly was interested in bringing him back, but they declined the $9.25 million option in his contract for next season.

Baker, 31, has been with the Twins for the entirety of his 7-year career. He was 63-48 with a 4.15 ERA with the team. In 2011, prior to the injury, Baker was 8-6 with a 3.14 ERA.
