Cubs playoff roster this season.

Matt Garza, Scott Feldman, Carlos Villanueva, Kevin Gregg, Dioner Navarro, Cody Ransom and David Dejesus will all be traded for prospects before the July 31st deadline. Al Soriano will be traded in August. Shawn Camp will be DFA'd. Hector Rondon, Henry Rodriguez and Julio Borbon will all be on the DL until September 1st.

This is my projected depth chart on August 31st, before rosters expand. If the Cubs can somehow luck into the 2nd wild card, then this would be their team:

Rotation - 1. Jeff Samardzija, 2. Travis Wood, 3. Edwin Jackson, 4. Chris Rusin, 5. Scott Baker.

Bullpen - closer Blake Parker, setup men Michael Bowden and lefty James Russell, right-handers Brian Schlitter and Casey Coleman, and lefties Zach Rosscup and Brooks Raley.

Lineup - 1. Logan Watkins/Darwin Barney 2B, 2. Starlin Castro SS, 3. Nate Schierholtz RF, 4. Junior Lake/Brian Bogusevic LF, 5. Anthony Rizzo 1B, 6. Ryan Sweeney/Scott Hairston CF, 7. Welington Castillo/Steve Clevenger C, 8. Luis Valbuena/Josh Vitters 3B.
