It's a minor-league deal with a NRI to major-league camp.

The Cubs signed two righthanders off the scrap heap Friday.

They spent $6 million (plus $1 million of incentives) for ex-Ray, Rockie and Oriole Jason Hammel.

They spent virtually nothing -- a minor-league deal with a non-roster invitation to spring training -- on another righthander with possibly even more upside than Hammel.
