Cub Tracks’ best paw forward

Welcome to today’s edition of Cub Tracks news and notes™, a greatest-hits collection of Chicago-style beat writers and bloggers, ground from #Cubs, #MiLB, and #MLB baseball, overheated, steeped in writers’ tears, and then cold-brewed overnight for maximum flavor.

The Cubs have a new lefthanded bat. How they manage Eric Hosmer’s defensive activity is yet to be seen. They also have a new lefthanded pitcher, Ryan Borucki. And Brad Wieck has re-signed but he’s not likely to be much in vogue until next year as he recovers from a procedure.

It doesn’t look like Rafael Devers is going to be an option, either, as there are multiple reports of his Spinal Tap deal. So what’s a Cub to do, now?

It remains to be seen.
