The Cubs have signed Cuban righthander Armando Rivero to a contract with a $3.1 million bonus. International sources last year in July said the Cubs were going to sign Rivero for the same terms, so it appears the agreement may have been in place for several months. However, the Cubs did not officially submit the contract until this month. BA correspondent Phil Rogers first reported Rivero's signing.
