Posted on 29 December 2011 by Lou

The Cubs inked Manny Corpas to a 1-year split contract for the 2012 major league season.  Corpas is 29 years old and has a career 12-16 record with a 3.95 ERA.  He has 34 saves and 51 holds and helped the Colorado Rockies reach the 2007 World Series after Closer Brian Fuentes went down with a midseason injury.  Corpas had Tommy John surgery on his right elbow in 2010 and he rehabbed his arm the entire 2011 season in the Texas Rangers organization.  He played winter ball in Panama for 2 months this fall and the Cubs will let him compete for a spot in the bullpen in 2012…
