The Chicago Cubs today announced that Marquis Grissom, Augie Ojeda and Mike Restovich have signed minor league contracts and been invited to big league camp.

Grissom, 38, has spent the last 17 seasons in the majors, playing for Montreal (1989-1994), Atlanta (1995-1996), Cleveland (1997), Milwaukee (1998-2000), the Los Angeles Dodgers (2001-2002) and San Francisco (2003-2005). He was selected by Montreal in the third round of the 1988 draft - and made his major league debut the next season.

The outfielder has batted .272 with 386 doubles, 56 triples and 227 homers in 2,165 career games. In addition, he has collected 967 RBI, recorded 429 stolen bases and scored 1,187 runs. He appeared in just 44 games for San Francisco in 2005, as he battled a strained hamstring.

Ojeda, 31, has batted .219 in 178 big league contests for the Cubs (2000-2003) and for Minnesota (2004). The infielder was originally drafted by Baltimore in 1996. He spent the 2005 season with Rochester (AAA), batting .224 in 105 games.

Restovich, 27, has seen major league action over the past five seasons, batting .254 in 127 games. The right-handed hitting outfielder saw his most extensive big league time in 2005, appearing in 52 games for Pittsburgh and 14 games for Colorado.

Restovich was selected in the second round of the 1997 draft by Minnesota and made his major league debut with the Twins in 2002.
