The Chicago Cubs address their need for a top-of-the-rotation starting pitcher by acquiring Shane Bieber from the Cleveland Guardians for Javier Assad, Patrick Wisdom, and Matt Mervis.

Bieber is a free agent after the 2024 season and after entertaining trade offers at the Major League Baseball trade deadline this past season, there has been speculation that the Guardians may look to move their ace this off-season.

The package is being carried by Assad given the success that he had as part of the starting rotation this past season. Having said that, the Cubs would need to offer much more to Guardians if they were to acquire Bieber.

Chicago Cubs Trade Grade: A, the Cubs would likely make this deal in a heartbeat but this is the type of trade that highlights the difference in logic between the video game, MLB The Show, and real life as there is no way that Guardians say yes to this deal.
