8 Cubs that could be available at the deadline if they fall out of contention - #7: Nick Madrigal
The other side of that same coin centers around the Cubs holding onto Wisdom and moving on from another former first-rounder in Madrigal, who lit up Triple-A pitching before recently rejoining the big league team.
There's no two ways about it: Madrigal has been a tremendous disappointment since coming to the Cubs in the Craig Kimbrel trade. But if he can show value leading up to the deadline and get back to being the high-contact bat he was known to be as a college standout and during his days with the White Sox, there's bound to be a club interested in adding him into the fold.
Madrigal, under team control through 2026, is blocked up the middle with Nico Hoerner and Dansby Swanson cemented as the Cubs' double-play tandem. He can be a nice bench piece and provide depth at a trio of infield positions, but it's worth wondering if Chicago could shore up the bullpen picture by sending him on his way come July.
