2. Trade for Shane Bieber

The depth of the Chicago Cubs pitching staff has already been put into question with injuries to Caleb Kilian, Justin Steele, and Jameson Taillon. Of course, of the three, the injuries to Steele and Taillon have a direct impact on the Major League team. While Taillon is expected back within the next two weeks, Steele is expected to miss the entire month of April.

Shota Imanaga's debut remains an encouraging sign for the Cubs' rotation but chances are the team will be in the market for a top-of-the-rotation starting pitcher at the Major League Baseball Trade Deadline in July.

That would be the reason why the team should have finalized their trade for Shane Bieber this offseason. The Cubs and Cleveland Guardians were engaged in trade discussions regarding Bieber for most of the offseason.

Chances are the two teams will revisit talks in a couple of months. Bieber has been excellent to start the season as he hasn't allowed a run in 12 innings pitched while striking out 20.
