Just last season, the pitcher underwent Tommy John surgery on his right elbow for the second time. Maybe it is just me, but it really does seem like the Cubs have a thing for guys who have had the Tommy John operation. I am really hoping that all these pitchers can bounce back from their surgeries and create some strong pitching for the Cubs. Lim did say that he and the Cubs would not expect him to pitch until 2014.
It is estimated at the moment that the deal is worth $5 million.
