In which we add a pitcher and a catcher and do some farming
Mike Minor has been signed to a deal with the Rangers, and is no longer a subject for this exercise. Ian Krol, Jake McGee, and Brandon Morrow are still available. We’re going to let them languish on the wire for just a little bit longer and continue through the alphabet, with N, O, P, Q, and R being under consideration in this installment and S, T, U, W, X, Y, and Z in the next, after which we’ll do a final roster tweak and start talking about money, finishing up as the Winter Meetings start, five days from now.
This is the Cubs‘ 40-man as it stands (although Alcantara and Amarista are on minor-league deals and are fungible, they’re occupying two spots for the nonce).
