That’s the first time we’ve heard a sourced connection between the Cubs and the Cuban prospect.
Chicago Cubs Rumors
The rumors won’t go away, but I suppose that could simply be because the two sides keep in contact.
Huge swaths of free agents remain unsigned with Spring Training just around the corner.
In this week’s Ask Away, we check in on the remaining roster moves, gaps in sabermetrics, Brett as a Michael’s boss, and much more.
The sides will be negotiating a deal for 2016 anyway, so why not continue to explore a long-term deal?
The big-time Cuban prospect appears to be trying to expand his pool of bidding teams. As he should.
That would bring the Braves into the max penalty range, which could turn the international market around quite a bit.
Fixing the problem for players like Fowler could come soon. Also: Russell’s rates poorly in one defensive metric, Cubs marriages, skiing at Wrigley, more.
It’s February, and Dexter Fowler is still unsigned. I did not see that one coming.
The Cubs are tied to yet another Cuban free agent, but this glove-first center fielder comes without IFA restrictions.
There are implications for many other teams here, including the Cubs, depending on what happens. (UPDATE: Corey Dickerson going to Rays for pitching.)
That feels like an overstatement to me, but we’ve gotta discuss what the report says.
There’s still quite a bit of mystery at play, though.
