Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - The Chicago Cubs agreed to terms on a two- year contract with outfielder Ryan Sweeney on Thursday.

A second-round pick of the White Sox back in 2003, the 28-year-old Sweeney owns a career .278 average with 20 homers and 204 RBI in 605 games over parts of eight seasons with the White Sox, Athletics, Red Sox and Cubs.
