Chicago Cubs Trade Rumors: Updating All of Chicago's Hottest Waiver Rumors

The trade deadline has come and gone, but that doesn't mean there is not still some wheeling and dealing to be done over the next month.

The month of August brings with it the waiver trade deadline, which is far more complicated than the free-for-all that is the month of July but still ends with some players changing teams.

Bleacher Report lead writer Jason Martinez wrote a piece last week breaking down all the gory details of what goes into a waiver trade, so I'll direct you to that article if you're curious about how the system works.

Instead, we'll use this space to focus on the Chicago Cubs and any and all rumors and trades that may take place between now and August 31, which marks the cut-off for teams to acquire a player and still place him on their postseason roster.

The Cubs don't have any real albatross contracts to unload, and they likely won't use the waiver period to deal valuable trade chips like Nate Schierholtz and James Russell. But there are some secondary pieces who could be on the move.

So check back here for all of the latest updates surrounding the Cubs during the August waiver trade period.
