Here are the 40 players who are in the Cubs’ postseason player pool for this season:

PITCHERS (21)

OUTFIELDERS (6)

Now, don’t get too excited about seeing Brailyn Marquez on this list. These are the players who will be eligible to play for the Cubs in the postseason. Anyone not on the 40-man roster (like Marquez) would still have to be added to the 40-man in order to play, and of course the roster limit for each series will be 28. That roster can be adjusted for each series.

Now let’s hope the Cubs finish the regular season on a high note and actually win some postseason games.
