The Infield Market is Flying Now: Add Andrelton Simmons and Freddy Galvis to the Deals Today

Chicago Cubs

Having already noted Marcus Semien, Tommy La Stella, and Cesar Hernandez signing today (and J.T. Realmuto, for that matter), there are a couple more infielders going off the board as the music shuts off.

Andrelton Simmons to the Twins, Freddy Galvis to the Orioles:

There’s not much of a direct impact here with respect to the Cubs, save perhaps for the other NL Central clubs that are looking at infielders. From there, the only impact is the increased movement in free agency could lead to lower-tier guys finally trickling to the Cubs, and/or the Cubs making more trades.

It is both odd and not odd that there was an explosion in the same market on the same day, as many of these moves were probably interconnected as teams wait on X so they can decide on Y.
