The Chicago Cubs have signed infielder Daniel Descalso to a two-year, $5-million contract with a club option for a third year, the team announced Tuesday.

Descalso's club option for 2021 is worth $3.5 million with a $1-million buyout, according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.

The 31-year-old spent the last two seasons with the Arizona Diamondbacks where he slashed .235/.343/.416 with 23 home runs and 108 RBIs across 268 games.

Descalso isn't slated to be an everyday player for the Cubs, but has experience playing every infield position other than catcher and can spell regulars on a consistent basis. He's also made occasional appearances in left field.

The Cubs have a reputation for moving players around defensively, as the likes of Ben Zobrist, Javier Baez, and Ian Happ have all played multiple positions depending on the situation.
