Chicago Cubs far from finished this offseason

Jonathan Daniel

Cubs continue to build up pitching staff while minimizing commitments with offseason moves.

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.

Mooney mentions Shaun Marcum and Brandon McCarthy as other veteran pitchers the Cubs may look to lock up before the offseason comes to a close.
