Cubs Roster Construction

Outright or Outta Sight, Successor or Failure

Look for the Cubs to outright at least two players this week, possibly more. 

Now that the Cubs season is over, C Taylor Teagarden and OF Quintin Berry will very likely get outrighted to Iowa (neither is likely to get claimed off waivers). Then once outrighted, both players will very likely elect to be a free-agent (both are Article XX-D players), Teagarden because he has accrued at least three years of MLB Service Time, and Berry because he has been outrighted previously in his career).  

It's Just a Jump to The Left

The Cubs finished up their organizational meetings in Arizona and as expected, they'll attempt to find some left-handed bats.

''We're going to try to add some different wrinkles, offensively
especially,'' Piniella told the Sun-Times. ''We are going to add
left-handed hitting to this mix. From an offensive standpoint, that is
definitely the No. 1 priority. And if we can get a little more athletic
in the process, we're going to do that, too.''
