Is it spring yet?

No, not quite, but the Cubs today made a couple announcements concerning spring training.

Right-handed reliever Chad Fox agreed to a minor-league contract with a non-roster invite to spring training today. Many of you may have read Mike’s column in the June 2008 issue of Vine Line talking about Chad’s journey back from surgery and a two-and-a-half year layoff. His story is an important one for many younger players — like Angel Guzman, not to mention several minor-leaguers — who go through the trauma of blowing out their arm and trying to put it all back together.

The club also announced its 2009 spring training schedule today. The team has two report dates this year, for those playing in the World Baseball Classic and those not, and the schedule is a few games longer than usual. Click on the jump to read the full announcement.
