The Cubs signed him as a free agent over the winter. A career .213 hitter coming into the season, I don't think the Cubs were expecting much other than a utility glove. Darwin Barney got hurt the last week of spring training and would be out for a few weeks, opening a roster spot for Lillibridge.
He was the Cubs opening day starter at second base, but it was pretty obvious right away that he was not going to be any good. He started seven of the Cubs first nine games and had a grand total of one hit...and that came in his seventh game. After a few more day of the same lack of hitting, Lillibridge and his .042 average were sent to AAA. A couple months later the Cubs sold him to the Yankees.
His time with the Cubs was so short that he never made it into any cards as a Cub. This is a card I made for a post back on opening day.
