Apparently he's going to Atlanta so we'll still have to see him 6 times.

Ozzie Albies & Orlando Arcia can bond over how fun it is to not make outs against the Cubs

Bummer about Norwood being gone but at least we get an actual prospect back. Strong arm, was the Padres' No. 25 prospect. I guess we're only allowed to trade with them now.

This doesn't seem to make sense with DJ, Gleyber, Urshela and others on the roster. But the Rangers are eating almost all of his remaining salary.

Neither Urshela, Andujar, or especially Gleyber are acceptable major leaguers in the middle infield, and the only other name I see on that depth chart is a quad-A guy(Tyler Wade), so adding a second baseman who isn't a danger to himself with the glove feels like a move worth making.

Voigt I think is our for awhile too yet, maybe they want to shift DJ or Andujar to 1B. I don’t think Odor is anything special but he’s the best defender of that bunch and with the short RF porch he could hit 25+ HRs there

The Cubs signed Andrew Romine to a minors contract. The veteran utilityman has played with the Angels, Tigers, Rangers and Mariners over a big league career that began in 2010. Romine was in camp with the Twins in Spring Training but opted out after Minnesota declined to add the 35-year-old to the MLB roster. Romine’s younger brother Austin Romine is a catcher on the Cubs’ major league team, although the backstop is currently on the 10-day injured list.


Next we're gonna hear we've hired their dad to be a coach or something (their dad also played in the bigs but his name doesn't begin with an A).

From MLBTR:
The Reds announced Wednesday that right-hander Cam Bedrosian has rejected an outright assignment to their alternate site after clearing waivers. He’s now a free agent and is free to sign with any team.

He might be an interesting pickup to help out in the bullpen.

The Cubs have activated outfielder Ian Happ from the 10-day injured list and designated infielder Ildemaro Vargas for assignment, Russell Dorsey of the Chicago Sun-Times tweets.

It's apparently just one dollar. One step above releasing him so he could go to a team that needs an outfielder.

When PTR said he was going to reinvest every last dollar into the team payroll - he meant it.

Opens the door for Wander, for sure.

But they're selling awfully low on Adames for two meh pitchers. Hate that the Brewers made a good move.

Cubs signed Dee Strange-Gordon (you probably remember him better as Dee Gordon) to a minor-league deal. Ominous indicator of Nico's injury status.
