Parra signed a minor league contract with the Cubs on Monday that includes an invitation to spring training, Bruce Miles of the Daily Herald reports.

After three years in Cincinnati, Parra hit free agency again this offseason, and his numbers over the last couple seasons weren't good enough (3.90 ERA, 1.18 WHIP) to earn him another major league deal. With many teams in search of an effective southpaw, the Cubs have decided to throw a dart with him. The veteran will look to nab a bullpen spot with a strong spring training, but may face an uphill battle.
