The Cubs also agreed to a two-year deal with right-handed pitcher Chang-Yong Lim. Lim's minor league contract does not require a 40-man roster spot, according to report by Cubs.com.

The 27-year-old Stewart batted just .201 last season in limited action (55 games) after having season-ending surgery on his left wrist on July 10. He had 5 home runs and 17 RBI before being placed on the disabled list June 14.

Stewart was acquired by the Cubs from the Colorado Rockies as part of a four-player trade on Dec. 8, 2011. To make room for Stewart on the 40-man roster, left-handed pitcher Jeff Beliveau was designated for assignment.

A reliever, Lim has pitched 17 seasons in Korea and in Japan and is recovering from Tommy John ligament replacement surgery.
