Terms of the contract are not known yet. Lucroy will likely serve as the backup to Victor Caratini. He just cleared release waivers today, after being released by the Angels.
Lucroy is a career .275 hitter with 107 home runs and 539 RBI. His veteran leadership behind the plate will be his biggest asset for the Cubs.
