The Chicago Cubs may not have the prospect capital that they used to. In fact, they simply don’t.
Still, what Chicago doesn’t have in prospects, the franchise more than makes up for in controllable, young Major League talent.
The wild card of the bunch, the Brew Crew certainly have the assets to make a trade work.
It would take a significant amount of young talent, but a potential trade package including Lewis Brinson, one of Luis Ortiz, Brandon Woodruff and Josh Hader plus another prospect or two would be worth a look for Detroit.
The deal would give the Detroit Tigers a potential All-Star in center field, as well as a young starter in the rotation to replace Fulmer.
Milwaukee also has a number of big league veterans who could fit in the Motor City as a throw-in of sorts in this hypothetical trade. These players include Keon Broxton, Jonathan Villar and Hernan Perez.
Another organization loaded with prospects, Atlanta has plenty to offer in hypothetical trade. From Ronald Acuna and Kolby Allard to Kyle Wright and Mike Soroka, there’s plenty of intruiging young talents.
