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

As we await spring training, which starts with Cubs pitchers and catchers reporting a week from today, let’s get to know the 40-man roster... with their names scrambled in anagrams. There are a lot of new names from last year.

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 a couple 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 above. 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.
