The Cubs signed former Blue Jays reliever B.J. Ryan to a minor league deal today. The lefty was released by Toronto after he struggled this season and had injury issues. It's a no-risk deal for the Cubs, as the Blue Jays are on the hook for his salary this year and next. If it works out, the Cubs would have another lefty in the 'pen to help out Sean Marshall.
