MLB Rumors: Cubs Targeting Sonny Gray After Jose Quintana Trade

Even though they are trailing the Brewers by five games, the Cubs still have enough time to turn things around.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book, the Cubs are now 9/1 to win the 2017 World Series following the trade acquisition of Quintana on Thursday.

Epstein has already given up a lot of his farm system talent in last years deal for Aroldis Chapman and the move for Quintana. Quintana's arm will give the Cubs a fourth quality starter in the rotation once Kyle Hendricks returns from his injury, and if John Lackey can turn his season around then the rotation will be right back to the level they performed at last season. After 5 terrific years to start off his White Sox career, Quintana, who expected to be dealt during the offseason along with Chris Sale, has been playing the worse baseball of his career: 4.49 ERA, 1.323 WHIP and an terrible 2.73 SO/W ratio. July should be an interesting month. Jose Quintana has settled down after 2 rough outings in late May.

What does this do for the fantasy landscape? The answer is yes!

The Cubs won the World Series with Chapman closing in 2016, so they can be forgiven for splurging and giving up a guy who now ranks as Baseball America's No. 3 prospect.

"We're really excited to add Jose Quintana to the club". If he is available in your league, go grab him! Jimenez has been playing in the Carolina League with the Myrtle Beach Pelicans. They'll need to add more pitching one way or another.

According to ScreenRant's report on The Incredibles 2 , Elastigirl will be front and center, fighting the bad guys while Mr. Fear not, the characters still look exactly as you remember them, there's just a little more fine detail (and better hair).

The Cubs and White Sox have made franchise-altering trades with each other before. After an under performed first, Arrieta will hope to start high the second half. That could change very quickly.

The Sox, meanwhile, get more big pieces for their massive rebuild. What do you think it would take for them to get him? He is the number 5 prospect in the minors, and could be in Chicago as early as next summer. The acquisition of Jimenez now gives the Cubs three of baseball's top 11 prospects (again, per, with Yoan Moncada and Michael Kopech (both acquired in the Chris Sale trade) joining Jimenez.

Wade Miley will make the start for the Orioles in Saturday's game against the Cubs.

The Cubs also sent minor leaguers Matt Rose, a first baseman, and Bryant Flete, an infielder, to the Sox. At 22, he still has plenty of time to figure out how to hit for average. Avisail Garcia finished with two hits, two stolen bases and two runs, but Sox hitters managed to do little else. At this point, the chances are better than he never makes the majors at all.

If only the exhibits had ears, the blockbuster trade might have been scooped before the Cubs and Sox issued the shocking announcements Thursday.
