NORMAL -- The Normal CornBelters have signed former Chicago Cubs minor league pitcher Ethan Elias to a contract for the upcoming season.
Elias was drafted in the 22nd round of the 2011 draft by the Cubs. The right-hander spent time with Chicago's Arizona rookie league team and low Class A Boise.
Over two seasons, Elias had a combined 4.05 ERA and 51 strikeouts over 60 innings.
"Ethan is a good, young arm who has some experience in the professional ranks," Normal manager Brooks Carey said. "He has a great chance of contributing on another good (Belters) pitching staff."
