Chicago Cubs: A familiar name coming full circle?

Tyson Ross is a familiar name to Cubs fans. He was one of the guys they looked at in the 2016-2017 offseason. He is currently pitching in San Diego on the last year of his contract. Ross currently sports a 3.78 ERA, 1.230 WHIP and 4.32 FIP in 100.0 innings pitched.

Ross has a solid track record in his career as a big leaguer. Outside two injury-riddled seasons in 2016 and 2017, he had real good seasons in 2014, 2015 and doing well so far this season. 2014 marked his All-Star season in which he had a 2.81 ERA in 195 2/3 innings.

If healthy, Ross can be a valuable addition to this rotation. So far health has not been an issue for him in 2018 .

These are just a few options for the Cubs to possibly explore. What certain teams do in terms of buying or selling can be determined over the next few weeks. Not to mention the health of Yu Darvish being a key factor.
