Some very last-minute roster moves tonight for the Cubs, announced just before game-time (which is how you know Adbert Alzolay has been traveling with the team just in case).
Infielder Ildemaro Vargas’s season is over, and Alzolay is back on the roster:

Now that we know Jose Quintana is starting tomorrow for the Cubs, with Alzolay coming up today, we can safely assume he’s part of the bullpen mix. And I like that – he’s clearly got the stuff to be an impact reliever, even as the Cubs have understandably continued to try to bring him along as a starter.
As for Vargas, well, we’ll always have that no-doubter off of Josh Hader.
