Chicago Cubs: 5 Possible Roster Moves to Make Room for Anthony Rizzo

Well, it appears the wait is nearing a close.

Several reports and rumors have been circulating throughout the Chicagoland area that Anthony Rizzo will soon be joining the Chicago Cubs. Whether it is true or not, there are several factors that are supporting the claim.

One, his Super Two status is up, meaning he won't be a free agent until after the 2018 season. If he was called up a week or two ago, he would have been eligible for free agency after the 2017 season.

Second, Bryan LaHair saw time in the outfield, which suggests the team is looking at potential lineups that would involve Rizzo.

The guy has been monitored very closely all year, and hopefully his upcoming call up will be his last. The Cubs will need to figure out who will be the 26th man when they do call up Rizzo.

So let's explore five possible options that could precede Anthony Rizzo's call up.
