Chris Rusin wants a job for reals.
Chris Rusin wants to keep that rotation spot, and work his way into longer term consideration.
You would expect the Cubs to listen on anyone, but I suppose it’s possible there’s a little more meat to this one.
The timing of the trade was probably as good as it was going to get, as was the return. Black is an intriguing prospect.
The Cubs jumped the market on starting pitching, and got a good deal for Soriano. What’s next? Well, maybe more than you think.
At least by FIP. Didn’t see that coming, did you? Kris Bryant hits his first home run, and James Russell may be transforming.
The Cubs had been connected, but weren’t expected to land the righty when all was said and done.
Edwin Jackson is really coming along.
Eduardo Sanchez is up to replace Alfonso Soriano. Technically.
The 29-year-old righty was pitching quite well at AAA Iowa, but there wasn’t going to be a spot for him this year.
I didn’t forget! Junior Lake got the business, Alfonso Soriano’s roster spot needs a taker, and Scott Baker’s rehab starts aren’t going well just yet.
A personal take on a guy who deserves a lot of credit.
Fairly significant cost savings and a decent pitching prospect. Nicely done, and farewell, Soriano.
The 18-year-old righty is a quality prospect who could see Stateside work almost immediately.
The Cubs carry on in San Francisco without Alfonso Soriano.
