MESA, Ariz. – The Chicago Cubs remain hopeful for another good season after their World Series Title in 2016.
According to MLB Traderumors.com, the Cubs announced on Wednesday that they had acquired right-hander Eddie Butler from the Colorado Rockies in exchange for minor league righty James Farris, minor-league. Whether this is a good move or not is anyone’s guess, but the Cubs have proved they have what it takes to make it to the World Series.
According to the Bleacher Report, catcher Kyle Schwarber has a good chance offensively to help the Cubs through the season. However, catcher Brett Anderson is the leading candidate for the number five starter, even though he has been prone to injury in the past. The Cubs also had traded pitcher Aroldis Chapman to the New York Yankees, a move that could potentially come back to haunt them.
All in all, there are very few holes that can be poked in the Cubs’ roster and they look like they’ll be able to hold their own in the upcoming season.
The Chicago Cubs are slated to begin spring training on Feb. 25 at Sloan Park, 2330 W. Rio Salado Pkwy, Mesa.
