FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING TRADE DEADLINE NEWS: CUBS USING JAVIER BAEZ AS BAIT TO LAND STARTER



The Chicago Cubs are using top infield prospect Javier Baez as the main piece to try and acquire a starting pitcher ahead of the trade deadline.  The most recent chatter has the Cubs engaged with the Cleveland Indians to see what it would take to acquire Carlos Carrasco.  The Cubs have also been connected to Yovani Gallardo, Matt Shoemaker, and Tyson Ross.

Analysis:  The Indians would be completely foolish to move Carrasco who is under their control at affordable terms for a few more seasons.  The Cubs are looking hard for a starter they think can put them over the top and are more likely to get something done for Shoemaker or Ross.
