A different look at the names on the Cubs’ 40-man roster.

As we await spring training, which starts with pitchers and catchers reporting next week, let’s get to know the 40-man roster... with their names scrambled in anagrams. I haven’t done this in a couple of years, so there are a lot of new names.

As always, I’ve used the Internet Anagram Server to create these Cubs roster anagrams for all the players on the 40-man roster, except for two that the IAS couldn’t handle; those come instead from here and here. You might recognize a couple of returning anagrams from previous years — that’s because there just aren’t very many for some players.

Now it’s time for you to determine which Cubs player matches each of these anagrams. I’ve added some punctuation in some of them to make them funnier, and mixed them up by putting them in alphabetical order by anagram. I’ve pretty much given away the player anagrammed in the headline to this post by the photo. See if you can figure out the others. If you do figure it out and want to post the answer, please put it behind a spoiler bar in the comments so that others can play.
