3 Chicago Cubs pitchers that the New York Mets may be interested in
3 Chicago Cubs pitchers that New York Mets may be interested in - Adrian Sampson
Sampson was terrific for the Cubs last season as injuries forced him into the team's starting rotation for most of the 2022 campaign. Sampson appeared in 21 games overall, 19 starts, and posted a 3.11 ERA in 104.1 innings pitched. Given the success that Sampson had last season, the Cubs brought back the starting pitcher on a one-year deal with the idea being that he could be a part of the team's starting rotation to begin the season.
At the start of Spring Training, Cubs manager David Ross listed Sampson along with Hayden Wesneski and Javier Assad. Wesneski has thrived in Spring Training and that has placed him in a strong position to be the team's fifth starter at the start of the season. The emergence of Wesneski has put Sampson's spot with the Major League team in Jeopardy and a trade could be likely before Opening Day.
