The Chicago Cubs have been one of the most active teams this MLB offseason on both the free agent and trade market.

Noteworthy Chicago Cubs’ offseason transactions.

  • Signed right-hander Marcus Stroman to a three-year, $71 million deal
  • Acquired left-hander Wade Miley from the Cincinnati Reds
  • Signed Clint Frazier to a one-year, $1.5 million deal
  • Signed Yan Gomes to a two-year, $13 million deal

Carlos Correa is quite possibly the best remaining player on the MLB free agent market. According to WSCR’s Bruce Levine, the Cubs have “serious interest” in Correa, and the feeling is mutual. This would be an optimum pairing.

Here’s why Correa and the Cubs are a match.

Carlos Correa gives the Chicago Cubs an impact player

The Cubs still had a respectable offense after trading away Javier Baez, Anthony Rizzo, Kris Bryant and Joc Pederson before last season’s MLB trade deadline. That said, they don’t have a proven, impact player in their 2022 offense. Correa would be that player for the Cubs.
