By now it is common knowledge the Chicago Cubs will be active at the trade deadline. But which players will be actively shopped and which players the club will simply consider offers for is uncertain.
Depending on how competitive general manager Jed Hoyer and president Theo Epstein want the club to be post-July 31, just about everybody on the roster is available with the exception of the “core” players.
There are some players who are all but certain to be dealt before the deadline, such as Matt Garza.
Then there are some who are speculated to be available or would fall into the category of players the Cubs will not necessarily shop around, but are willing to entertain offers for.
This is a list of those players and the odds the Cubs trade them by the July 31 waiver-trade deadline.
(A short note: You will find four of the six pitchers the Cubs have used in the starter role this season in this list whose odds of being traded could fluctuate in the event one or more are dealt.)
