Why put Zagunis on the 40 man before you have to?
You have 4 quality outfielders on the major league team and a Javy Baez that can push 2 more there. The 5th outfielder, Iowa shuttle guy is supposed to be someone who gets no playing time, admittedly more like last year's Kawasaki than Szczur. Unless someone loses a leg again.


You don't have to unless the need arises, because Szczur doesn't really belong on the 25 man. The 40 man roster isn't much of an obstacle anyway, if Szczur isn't around there's an open spot, and Andreoli's presence on the 40 man itself proves that it's not stuffed to the gills with quality that you can't easily find space for someone.


I'm fairly certain Andreoli isn't on the 40 man.

He is not as the poster on the last page talked about, in fact we've decided not to put him on the 40-man twice and exposed him to the Rule 5 without him being claimed.

Sorry, I misread the previous posts and didn't double check. In either case the point is the same, there's no shortage of people who could be pulled off the 40 man.

Something like this is always a possibility, but I think we'd find teams willing to give us more of a Campania type package for him.


I'd say we could get another Eddie Butler or Alec Mills type for him. And as questionable as our post 2017 SP options are, I'd say we should be stocking up on those.

Heard the Maddon comments on La Stella being willing to go to Iowa. Interesting.

It may mean the Cubs will go with just 5 infielders to start the season. It's also possible Maddon is saying that now as a way to improve the team's leverage in a possible trade.
