Neal Cotts No Longer A Cub

By bullpenbrian - January 5, 2010 - 1:15 am Leave a comment.

Neal Cotts never compared to Ryan Dempster or Kerry Wood on the mound. But what they do share in common, however, is Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery.

Dempster and Wood both rebounded to find success in the big leagues. Cotts went under the knife in July and his return, obviously, is yet to be determined.

But if, in fact, Cotts rebounds it won’t be with the Cubs. The lefty signed a minor league contract with Pittsburgh on Monday.

The signing officially ends his two year stay on the North Side where he failed to win a single game (0-5) while posting a 4.97 ERA.
