Former Shaw baseball and football player Cam Greathouse signed a minor league deal with the Chicago Cubs on Sunday.
Greathouse, a left-handed pitcher who played two seasons at Gulf Coast Community College, decided to forgo playing at South Carolina.
Greathouse was selected in the eighth round. He will head to Arizona this week for two weeks of training in hopes he will be assigned to play at the Cubs' short season A league team, the Boise (Idaho) Hawks.
