The Chicago Cubs will be looking to improve their very flawed roster during the winter. There are going to be some really nice options out there available to them.
One person who may be traded after the 2022 season ends is Shohei Ohtani. The Los Angeles Angels haven’t been able to consistently win with him in the mix and now he might get moved.
The Cubs could be a team that considered him. There are even a few people out there that “wouldn’t be surprised” if the Cubs landed him.
It is something to be excited about when thinking of it but a lot of teams are going to throw their best offer out there for him. If the Cubs were to make that move, it might look like one of these three trade packages:
The price for the Chicago Cubs to land Shohei Ohtani might not be that bad.
Whoever lands Shohei Ohtani is going to have to give some stuff up. However, on the off chance that the price is not that high, the Cubs could pounce with a deal like this. Ohtani’s current contract is almost up and that could make the price for him come down.
Pete Crow-Armstrong is the Chicago Cubs’ top prospect right now and one of the top prospects in all of baseball. He is going to be a Major League player soon and might be an impactful one right away. Any team would want a guy like that in their system.
Nick Madrigal is someone that has had a tough year but has been better lately. When they acquired him from the Chicago White Sox, they had a lot of hopes for his future. He still could be a very good player but his playing time would be much more guaranteed there in Los Angeles.
Caleb Killian and Miguel Amaya are two prospects that would round out the trade for the Cubs. One is a pitcher and one is a catcher. Both of them can help the Angels in their quest to finally rebuild things the right way.
