News: Herrera signed with the Cubs on a minor league deal, CBS Sports reports.
Impact: Herrera spent most of 2014 in the big leagues, slashing .233/.307/.289 in 42 games with the Red Sox. He elected free agency rather than take his assignment to Triple-A, but it appears he'll have to start back in the minors in the Cubs organization.

News: Herrera will become a free agent after declining his assignment to Triple-A Pawtucket on Monday.
Impact: The Red Sox were looking to clear a 40-man spot, but Herrera opted to test the free agent market, as is his right. He may be able to catch on as a utility infielder with another club.
