Hoffpauir in fight for job

Cubs 1B Micah Hoffpauir and OF Sam Fuld are two players now on the bubble and fighting for jobs with the signings of OF Xavier Nady and 1B Chad Tracy, according to The Sports Xchange. Fuld brings speed and defense. Hoffpauir has power potential from the left side, but he's blocked by Derrek Lee at first base and now a glut of outfielders. Fuld's defense may give him the edge as the fifth outfielder. Hoffpauir broke camp with the big club last year but found himself sent to the minors for a time during the season. He hit .239 with 10 homers for the major league team last year.
