3 superstars the Cubs could target via trade: #2 - Tyler Glasnow
One could make the case Tyler Glasnow may be a tier below someone like Alonso who, after a pair of Home Run Derby titles, is more of a household name - but he's still got the stuff to be a real difference-maker atop a starting rotation.
Health is the continued question when it comes to the right-hander, but he poses no long-term risk. The big factor at play here is his $25 million salary for 2024, the final year of his deal with the Rays. The small-market Rays have never doled out that much for one player and it's hard to imagine they're about to buck that trend now.
The Cubs, meanwhile, have the prospect depth to land Glasnow and, being one of the most valuable franchises in the game, could easily add his salary for the one year. David Ross could pair the 30-year-old with Justin Steele atop the rotation, giving Chicago one of the best 1-2 punches in the National League if Glasnow can stay healthy.
