Chicago Cubs

It seemed as though the Chicago Cubs would be years away from competing for the MLB postseason just a few months ago. That may have changed.

Back in July, the Cubs underwent a fire sale. Virtually anyone that was a free agent at the end of the year was shipped away as Chicago dismantled the core of their roster and bullpen. However, at the time, they were adamant that they would not be rebuilding, looking to reload instead.

They backed up their words so far in the offseason. Wade Miley was plucked off waivers and improved the middle of the rotation. Marcus Stroman was brought in as their new ace, a dramatic improvement to what the Cubs had before.

There is still some work to do here as well. The Cubs could use another middle of the rotation arm and need to improve the bullpen. An outfielder would make sense as well. However, in a division that has seen more players leave than come in, another move or two could put the Cubs back into contention.

The Chicago Cubs said they were looking to return to the MLB postseason. With another move or two, that could happen.
