There is no doubt the Cubs will be active at the trade deadline. Filling spots in the rotation with young talent is a challenging process. Despite an uphill climb, the Cubs have some internal options, as well as a wealth of prospects to use as trade chips.
The Cubs are lucky enough to have All-Star caliber players at almost every position at the major league level. That will make it easier to trade top prospects for rotation help this summer.
One thing is almost certain, one of these guys listed will be in the Cubs’ starting rotation come Opening Day 2018….maybe even two.
Buckle up Cubs fans, it’s going to be a busy summer for the Cubs.
