This sounds like an upside play on Doubront’s talent, even if the present results are crummy, and at a low acquisition cost. I like it.
Chicago Cubs Rumors
The 20-year-old righty is pitching well in the Midwest League right now.
Would they have interest, for example, in Justin Ruggiano?
The latest from the rumor mill as we await the start of the Blogathon tomorrow morning.
The Cubs will be active in talks and may make a trade or two. But they won’t dump guys just to dump them.
Don’t worry about a crowded outfield. At least not right now.
He’ll be working out for other teams this week, and that might be a precursor to staying involved.
Does keeping Ruggiano – and someone like Chris Coghlan – present more value to the Cubs than a marginal prospect?
