South Kitsap grad Cunningham signs with Chicago CubsNovember 6th, 2013 at Wed, 6th, 2013 at 2:42 pm by chrischancellor
Outfielder Aaron Cunningham, a 2004 South Kitsap graduate, signed a minor-league contract Tuesday with the Chicago Cubs, according to MLBTradeRumors.com.
Cunningham, 27, spent last season in Round Rock, which is Texas’ Triple-A affiliate, and hit .247 with 10 home runs and 50 RBI. The right-handed Cunningham always has been a disciplined hitter and that continued last season as he drew 50 walks in 486 plate appearances.
This marks the seventh organization Cunningham has joined since he was drafted in the sixth round of the 2005 amateur draft by the Chicago White Sox in 2005. Cunningham last played in the major leagues in 2012, when he hit .175 in 72 games with Cleveland.
