Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that the Cubs have agreed to sign free agent right-hander Anibal Sanchez.
Another Hot Stove stunner on this Thursday afternoon. Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports hears that the deal could be worth $75 million over five years. It's a pretty shocking destination, as the Cubs are just getting started on a serious rebuilding effort. Sanchez turns 29 in February and owns a 3.75 ERA over seven seasons in the majors.
