Chicago Cubs host 39 pitchers in early weeks of camp
9 of 9
Plenty of options
As you can tell, there are plenty of options for the Chicago Cubs in terms of pitching depth.
Between proven commodities and those trying to prove they can perform, the team finds itself with a plethora of players. To be sure, while some may not stay with the team, their performance in camp may help spur them on to another organization.
Furthermore, injuries do happen and having these backup plans in place could make or break a team’s postseason chances.
As a fan, it is great to see such a high number of pitchers in camp. Even with several big names set to hit the market next winter, the depth the organization features offers long-term promise.
