Lukewarm Stove: Source Says Chris Davis Could Be Coming to Cubs Soon

Chicago Cubs Rumors

When the Chicago Cubs tendered Koyie Hill a contract yesterday, leaving four catchers on the 40-man roster, many were concluding it meant the Cubs (other than being cripplingly stupid) would soon be dealing a catcher. That’s a logical conclusion, to be sure – of course, I’d say there was still no need to tender Hill, but whateves.


It’s also possibly an accurate conclusion.

A Major League source indicates that the Cubs are very close to pulling the trigger on a Chris Davis trade. The Ranger first baseman is blocked by Mitch Moreland, and would be an inexpensive option with a high upside for the Cubs. In turn, the Rangers are looking for one of Welington Castillo or Robinson Chirinos. The Cubs would probably have to kick in a little something more.

Baseball’s Winter Meetings start on Monday. It could be an interesting week.
