Cubs: Depth in the infield will be a key for the team this season

Matt Duffy:

A versatile veteran who can play multiple infield positions, Matt Duffy is one of the more intriguing position players in camp. Duffy has played in 452 games and sports a career .282/.338/.380 slash with 22 home runs and 101 wRC+. He began his career in San Francisco where he won a World Series in 2014 and has also played with the Rays. This is a versatile depth piece who could prove useful in 2021.

Patrick Wisdom:

Fans might remember him last year when he appeared in two games as a Cub at the end of the season. Wisdom was a member of the Cardinals and Rangers organizations before making his Cubs debut last year. Look at it as more organizational depth piece rather than an Opening Day candidate.

Trent Giambrone:

Here is another guy who is more of an organizational depth piece. Giambrone was drafted by the Cubs in the 25th round of the 2016 draft and is no stranger to Cubs camp. He has played in 39 Cactus League games with the Cubs going back to 2018 and has always been one of those “borderline guys”. Giambrone recently played in the Puerto Rican Winter League and hit .220/.377/.390 in 12 games.
