The Chicago Cubs have been busy building up their pitching staff for next season with the recent signings of right-handers Scott Feldman and Scott Baker. But the two signings are just the start as team president Theo Epstein and general manager Jed Hoyer continue their offseason overhaul following a disappointing 2012 season.
According to Patrick Mooney, the Cubs remain active in the free agent market following the signings of Feldman and Baker. The Cubs made low-risk investments in the two pitchers with one-year deals that won't make a big dent in the payroll for the 2013 season.
With the injury woes always playing a starring role, the Cubs can't stockpile enough arms at this time of the year in hopes of putting together a quality rotation and bullpen with enough depth to weather the inevitable injuries that arise throughout the long baseball season.
