Some Kind of Roster Move is Coming Today Involving Randy Rosario (UPDATE: De La Rosa Signing)

Chicago Cubs

Well, even without the desperate need to refresh the bullpen, the Cubs are going to make a move in any case today:

Rosario, despite some OK results, has really struggled this year, especially lately – lots of walks, lots of hard contact, no strikeouts, etc. There’s still time for him to come along, but right now, he’s a lefty that isn’t even effective at getting out lefties. I’m fine with swapping him out for another reliever, even if it isn’t about getting a “fresh arm.”

To that end, it makes you wonder if Anthony Bass, who has been rehabbing, is ready to return? Or perhaps someone like James Norwood is going to come back? (Dillon Maples pitched last night for Iowa, so it’s not likely him. Ditto Luke Farrell and Dakota Mekkes.)

We’ll see soon enough.

UPDATE: The Cubs went outside the box – er, well, outside the org – to pick up a new reliever, Jorge De La Rosa.
