5 players who could play center field for the Cubs in 2024

The Chicago Cubs will have to address center field this offseason and decide whether one of their rookies is ready to handle the position on an every day basis

5. Kevin Kiermaier

Keep in mind, this is the nightmare scenario where the Cubs are unable to re-sign Cody Bellinger and they bring in a veteran outfielder as depth for the rookies. And by depth, I mean Ross will play them every day despite how bad they look until the front office designates them for assignment.

There is a wealth of center fielders who fall into this bucket and are hitting free agency in addition to Kevin Kiermaier; including Harrison Bader, Michael Taylor, Tony Kemp, Kevin Pillar, Jake Marisnick etc. I could see the Cubs bringing in any one of these guys as a band-aid free agency signing.

Do I want this to happen? No. But given the situation and the colossal demand for Cody Bellinger, I'd prepare yourself to see this kind of signing by the Cubs.
