Cubs signed LHP Kyler Burke to a minor league contract.
Burke, 24, posted a 3.44 ERA in 27 appearances (19 starts) in 2012 and finished the year at High-A Daytona. A converted outfielder, the Cubs would likely be thrilled if he eventually makes it as a left-handed specialist. Sun, Nov 11, 2012 04:51:00 PM

Kyler Burke went 3-for-5 on Saturday and has 14 hits in his last six games for Honolulu of the HWL.

Seven of those hits have been doubles. Overall, the 2006 supplemental first-round pick is hitting .379/.438/.552 in 58 at-bats. He's been a bust in the minors so far, but he's just 19 and he has plenty of tools. The Cubs figure to have him begin 2008 in the Midwest League.

Outfielder Kyler Burke was traded from the Padres to the Cubs in a three-player deal.

Burke, 19, was a supplemental first-round pick last year, but he hit just .209/.313/.294 in the GCL in his pro debut and he was at .211/.305/.268 for low Single-A Fort Wayne this season. There are still some nice tools here, but he's about as raw as they come.
