Monday’s non-tendered players provide the Cubs with a deeper pool of free agents to explore. A few players could make sense for a team with budget constraints and several holes to fill.
With an extremely critical offseason approaching on the South Side, the White Sox need to make some impactful moves. Free agency has been a struggle for the Sox, so going the trade route may be their best option to acquire talent that moves the needle.
In an offseason where the Cubs will experience many changes, a new manager should be step one.
It is being reported that Chicago Cubs closer Craig Kimbrel is going on the IL, with elbow inflammation being the culprit.
News broke today that Derek Holland has been placed on the 10-day IL with a left wrist injury. In a subsequent move, the Cubs bring back David Bote in place of Holland.
With the defensive need at middle infield and Almora consistently underperforming all season, a swapping him and Russell is warranted.
Nick Castellanos and Ian Happ have provided a much-needed jolt to the Cubs’ offensive lineup.
Happ is 3-3 with a home run and a double in his last two games and is starting to see the ball very well at the plate.
