Cubs signed INF Elliot Soto to a minor league contract.
Soto was selected by the Cubs in the 15th round of the 2010 MLB June Amateur Draft, so this is a homecoming of sorts. He batted just .241/.358/.297 with one home run and three stolen bases in 62 games last season for the Triple-A affiliate of the Marlins and will turn 28 years old next August.

Cubs minor leaguer Elliott Soto was handed a 50-game suspension for violating Minor League Baseball's drug program.

No word on what the substance was that Soto tested positive for, but it was his second violation of drug abuse. The 24-year-old shortstop had a rough season between High-A Tennessee and Double-A Daytona, slashing .219/.303/.281 with two homers, 24 RBI and three stolen bases. He'll begin serving his suspension at the beginning of the 2014 season.
