While the offseason is still a few months away, it is never too early to look forward to the upcoming free-agent class of 2020. This class is not as strong as years past; however, there are still a handful of quality names hitting the market.

Looking at the current makeup of the Chicago Cubs roster, many would argue against the possibility of adding new names via free agency. The club currently has three players on their major league roster eclipsing the $20 million mark per year. There are also several guys set to hit arbitration. Meaning that there is a high likelihood of the team dropping some serious cheese to ensure the roster stays intact.

Still, the excitement of free agency each offseason brings an heir of hope for teams looking to upgrade their status. The expectations surrounding the Cubs in free agency are not high due to their circumstances. However, there is still nothing wrong with creating a wishlist of upcoming superstars fans would love to see in the Windy City.
