Chicago Cubs: Even for just a game or a few innings, we will recognize players who, at some point, played in a game with the eventual 2016 World Champion Cubs

No doubt, Chicago Cubs fans who witnessed the 2016 championship will forget about any of the players that were on the World Series roster, or any of the other postseason rosters that year for that matter. The regular season that year was pretty unforgettable as a whole, but over a long 162 game campaign, smaller moments can get lost in our collective memories. It is tough to remember who did what in a 162 games season, even if it was a historical one.

Like every team in the history of baseball, the 2016 Cubs had their share of guys who came in to be temporary fixes and experiments to see if the value can be salvaged on a gamble. Also, like every team ever, some of these players would only spend a very brief time with the club and were gone as soon as they came. Some of these guys were well-known older veterans and others were minor leaguers little fans knew of.

For the most die-hard of Cubs fans, you will remember some of, if not all, of them in some capacity. Others might have to be either reminded of some of the names or will now learn something new about the 2016 team. Here are several players you might have forgotten suited up for the Cubs in the 2016 season.
