The Chicago Cubs swore that they were not about to enter a rebuilding phase even though they held a fire sale at the trade deadline. Their actions thus far prove that they are looking to reload.
As it is, the Cubs have addressed what was a mediocre starting rotation. Wade Miley was essentially gifted to them by the Reds and they inked Marcus Stroman as a free agent. Even with those additions, the Cubs still need to add to their rotation.
Frankie Montas could be the type of arm they need. He would likely slot in as their second starter between Stroman and Kyle Hendricks, adding another solid arm with a great deal of potential to their rotation.
As with the other teams listed, the Cubs are still intent on addressing their pitching staff. They will also need to remake their bullpen as well after trading away several of their top relievers at the deadline as well. However, there are still solid relievers in free agency, whereas the top starters are almost all gone.
The Chicago Cubs are still looking for another piece for the starting rotation. Frankie Montas could be the answer.
