You can never have enough depth.

The Chicago Cubs have reportedly signed second baseman Corban Joseph to a minor league deal on Friday according to multiple reports.

The 31-year old will get a spring training invite according to reports.

Last season with the Oakland A's affiliate, he raked at a .371/.421/.585 clip in the Pacific Coast League.

For the big-league A's last season, he only got 37 at-bats in 11 games and hit .189 with a homer and five RBIs.

He has spent time with the Giants, Pirates, A's, Orioles, and Yankees organizations.

This is another decent signing since its just for a minor league contract. Who knows, he might be super impressive and beat out Daniel Descalso for a final bench spot in spring training for the Cubs. If not, he will more than likely head to Triple-A Iowa for depth purposes.
