Here is your Thursday supply of Chicago Cubs newsbits:

From Comcast Sportsnet Chicago:

  • Patrick Mooney reports that the Cubs will go big-game hunting in free agency. The Cubs are planning to have sit-downs with representatives for top free agents David Price, Zack Greinke and Jordan Zimmermann. Johnny Cueto isn't high on the list. They've also touched base with reps for Jeff Samardzija.
  • Patrick also says that the Cubs are keeping Miguel Montero in their 2016 plans. For now. The catcher is owed 28 million dollars over the next two seasons, and that's money that could be applied elsewhere.

From ESPN Chicago:

From the Chicago Tribune:

  • Mark Gonzales continues the Cubs position-by-position analysis with a look at the outfield. Contract status, breakdowns, discussion of the issues facing the Cubs. Jonny Gomes, Alex Gordon, Jason Heyward are available in free agency. Soler has promise. Kyle Schwarber is adequate. Chris Coghlan and Fowler are probably gone.
