Chicago Cubs: Is there interest in upgrading behind the plate?


The Chicago Cubs may be adding behind the plate to the list of positions they would like to upgrade this offseason.

While there’s no question the Chicago Cubs are looking to upgrade this team that unexpectedly made it to the NLCS, it does come as a bit of a surprise that they could be looking to upgrade at catcher. While not the strongest on the roster, the depth there is adequate while they look to fill centerfield and add pitching depth. An upgrade behind the plate would be welcome, just not at the cost of allowing some of the other team needs to go unfulfilled.

The Cubs have made some strong trades in recent years, and a few more might me made this offseason as they look to strengthen up this team. We take a look back at some of the more impactful offseason deals they’ve made in recent years.

The Cubs will find themselves in the fire early in 2016 as they face a tough April schedule. The face several division foes early, as well as a trip out West to face the Los Angeles Dodgers for a short two-game series. It’s been said you can’t win the division in April, but you can lose it. The Cubs will need to come out with their A-game if the hope to topple the Cards and Pirates for the Central.
