7/30 Countdown to Trade Deadline
GM Jed Hoyer and Theo Epstein have both indicated the Cubs could make another move by Thursday’s 3 p.m. CT Trade Deadline. The players most likely to go would be those who will be free agents after this season. That list includes:
Nate Schierholtz .198/.244/.310
Emilio Bonifacio .279/.318/.373
John Baker .216/.308/.256
Carlos Villanueva 4-6, 5.49 ERA in 28 games (2.87 ERA as reliever; 10.53 ERA in five starts)
Of course, with Baker’s outstanding pitching performance on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning, they’ll probably keep him.
