The Cubs just went very big in their quest for controllable starting pitching. WOW.

The bullpen needed a fresh arm after yesterday.
Lackey’s injury allows the Cubs to add Kyle Schwarber as something of an extra player.
They’re bringing Schwarber baaack, yeah.
The Cubs are in the IFA penalty box, but they’re still figuring out ways to spend.
There are potential luxury tax implications for the Cubs in the Montero trade.
Hopefully Zobrist’s wrist is back to 100%, because the Cubs will need his bat.
Wow. What a stunning 12 hours it’s been for the Cubs.
Carasiti is a very nice return for Rosscup, and could be a future big league reliever.
The Cubs have made the expected roster move of calling up Jeimer Candelario and sending down Dylan Floro.
He likely replaces a reliever, and provides cover for Addison Russell’s injury.
A little fun(?) at second base, the ridiculous homer rates around the game, and the Cubs signed a lefty.
The 29-year-old lefty saw time with the big league team several times over the past few years, but hasn’t been able to stick.
The Cubs have been busy in the signing period, and a Lange signing is just a matter of time.
Hey, there’s some good news. Little gets a slightly under slot signing bonus.
A bullpen swap for the Cubs in advance of today’s game.
Kyle Hendricks Headed to the DL with Hand Tendinitis, Seth Frankoff Coming Up (UPDATE: Anderson to 60-Day DL)
Mike Montgomery will start in Hendricks’ place tomorrow.
Dylan Floro’s time with the big league club was short, but I suspect that’s not the last we’ve seen of him.
Grimm struggled mightily earlier this year.
Buchanan was one of the Cubs’ many depth starters.
The Cubs are rotating in and out middle relievers rapidly, which makes sense when you have the bodies and the options to pull it off.
The Cubs shuffle the roster around a bit to bolster the bullpen and return Jason Heyward.
Happ stays, and La Stella will likely be riding the bus once again.
Pierce Johnson gets the call to The Show, while Jeimer Candelario has been sent back to Iowa.
The Cubs shuffle Grimm back out of the bullpen mix as he works to get things straightened out.
The Cubs’ bench gets a much-needed boost from a top AAA bat.
