The Chicago Cubs face plenty of big questions as they prepare for the season.

Heading into a shortened 60-season with numerous rule changes, there is a laundry list of questions to think about as the Cubs open camp. Back when the club was readying for a typical 162-game season in March, they were not preparing for 30-man Opening Day rosters, no MiLB season or having a designated hitter. Now they will be.

David Ross is probably going to have to reevaluate some things that he started to put together back in March. There were still some questions that had yet to be answered back then, and now he will get a chance to finally put everything together several months later.

What makes things very interesting for the upcoming “Spring Training 2.0” is that it will be mostly workouts/drills starting with a 60-man roster pool and the teams will play up to just three (maximum) exhibition games against other clubs. It is going to be a very weird preseason and season.

So what important questions linger going into the 2020 season? From roster construction, to health status, to performance. etc. here are some big questions heading into Spring Training 2.0.
