The Cubs have been active at the Trade Deadline under president of baseball operations Theo Epstein, but that was part of the rebuilding plan. Now, they feel the Cubs boast a solid core of young position players and they hope to have enough inventory in the Minor Leagues to fill holes if needed.

On some of Joe Maddon's new T-shirts this year there's a simple image of an umbrella with a couple of raindrops over "8-7." Cubs fans know that's the score from Game 7 of the World Series. The umbrella is a reminder of the 17-minute rain delay when Jason Heyward gave the players a pep talk that helped propel the Cubs to victory.
Mike Montgomery's versatility has made him the Ben Zobrist of the Cubs' pitching staff. Montgomery came to Spring Training as a candidate for the rotation, but his ability to start and relieve has prompted the team to keep him in the bullpen and name Brett Anderson to the rotation.

Javier Baez made one of the hardest throws recorded by a second baseman in the Statcast era to cut down a Netherlands runner at the plate during Puerto Rico's semifinal win in the World Baseball Classic on Monday night.
