Despite losing 88 games a season ago, the Chicago Cubs are not planning on continuing with a full-scale rebuild. They’ve been among the most active teams in scouring the MLB free agent market in an attempt to add to a talented young core group.
That reportedly includes Chicago taking aim at some of the top free agent shortstops as the hot stove heats up.
” I will be very surprised if the Cubs do not add one of the big four superstar shortstops,” MLB Network insider Jon Morosi reported on Tuesday.
In addition to Carlos Correa, the likes of Dansby Swanson, Trea Turner and Xander Bogaerts are top free agents available at this all-important position.
