Every Remaining 2015-16 MLB Free Agent. Should The Cubs Go After Any?

New, 171 comments

With just five weeks to go before pitchers and catchers report, do the Cubs need any more help?

David Sameshima

The Cubs' 40-man roster is full, they've sent out some spring-training invitations, and are likely to bring a few non-roster players from the organization to camp.

The team's pretty well stocked with the free-agent signings of John Lackey, Jason Heyward and Ben Zobrist. But could they still use some bench, bullpen or rotation help?

Here, via MLB Daily Dish's Free Agent Tracker, is a list of every remaining unsigned player who became a free agent after the 2015 season (excepting those who have announced their retirement), broken down by position. There aren't any catchers listed because all the FA catchers have signed.

Should the Cubs go after any of these 91 players? And where might the bigger names on this list end up? Your turn.
