The Chicago Cubs have added some depth to catcher signing veteran Yorvit Torrealba to a minor league deal.

Torrealba, 35, failed to make the roster of the Los Angeles Angels out of spring training after which he elected for free agency.

With Welington Castillo out of action the Cubs have been using John Baker and Eli Whiteside behind the plate. Neither player has performed well leaving the door open for Torrealba to quickly become an option.

Last season Torrealba hit 240/.295/.285 with zero home runs in 196 plate appearances.
