Outside the Cubs Boxcar plays chicken, part five

Clicking through the tumblers, trying to unlock the secrets within

Before we commence today’s exercise, our roster has been affected by the real world and needs to be adjusted first. Hector Rondon and Taylor Davis have been non-tendered, Matt Carasiti has been released to allow him to play in Japan, and Dario Alvarez has been signed to a major league contract.

With those changes, the roster (with our additions) looks like this:

  1. Arismendy Alcantara
  2. Albert Almora Jr.
  3. Dario Alvarez
  4. Alexi Amarista
  5. Jake Arrieta
  6. Javier Baez
  7. Kris Bryant
  8. Eddie Butler
  9. Trevor Cahill
  10. Victor Caratini
  11. Alex Cobb
  12. Willson Contreras
  13. Wade Davis
  14. Carl Edwards Jr.
  15. Luke Farrell
  16. Justin Grimm
  17. Deolis Guerra
  18. Jacob Hannemann
  19. Ian Happ
  20. Kyle Hendricks
  21. Jason Heyward
  22. Tommy La Stella
  23. Jon Lester
  24. Dillon Maples
  25. Cory Mazzoni
  26. Alec Mills
  27. Mike Montgomery
  28. Jose Quintana
  29. Anthony Rizzo
  30. Randy Rosario
  31. Addison Russell
  32. Kyle Schwarber
  33. Pedro Strop
  34. Jen-Ho Tseng
  35. Duane Underwood Jr.
  36. Mark Zagunis
  37. Rob Zastryzny
  38. Ben Zobrist

The bullpen still doesn’t look good. There’s a bit of inexperience at catcher. Definitely still a work in progress.

Here’s the relief corps, as of now:

  1. Dario Alvarez (L)
  2. Trevor Cahill
  3. Wade Davis
  4. Carl Edwards Jr.
  5. Justin Grimm
  6. Dillon Maples
  7. Mike Montgomery (L)
  8. Pedro Strop
  9. Duane Underwood Jr.
  10. Rob Zastryzny (L)

With this quintet presumably in Triple-A:

  1. Eddie Butler
  2. Alec Mills
  3. Cory Mazzoni
  4. Jen-Ho Tseng
  5. Randy Rosario (L)
