The SportsXchange

The Chicago Cubs announced Friday they have finalized a one-year, $2.25 million deal with outfielder Nate Schierholtz.

Schierholtz, 28, batted .257 with six home runs for the Giants and Phillies in 2012.

The Phillies decided to non-tender Schierholtz, who made $1.3 million last season.

In other Cubs moves, left-handed pitcher Gerardo Concepcion cleared waivers and was assigned outright to Class A Kane County. Also, left-handed pitcher Jeff Beliveau, who was the Cubs' Minor League pitcher of the year in 2011, was claimed off waivers by the Rangers, and right-handed pitcher Sandy Rosario claimed by the Giants.
