As we move into day three of the Winter Meetings, all has been quiet on the Chicago Cubs front so far.
The Cubs began addressing their issues in early November, starting with the rotation, and signed Scott Baker and Scott Feldman. More recently, the bullpen was addressed, and the team landed the heavily lauded Japanese closer Kyuji Fujikawa. Even though the Cubs have taken steps in the right direction, holes still remain, most noticeably in the outfield and at third base.
There have been many rumors about how the Cubs may address these holes going forward, from free agent signings to the trading of current players Alfonso Soriano and Carlos Marmol, but up to this point nothing has materialized.
That doesn’t mean the Cubs won’t be able to address their needs during the Winter Meetings or the weeks succeeding. There is still time.
However, just in case the Cubs don’t manage to land any free agent help and their trade markets dry up, here are a list of prospects that may be able to make the roster in 2013 and help fill some of the holes in Chicago.
