Looks like Cubs trying for Malholm, says MLBTR.

Since everyone is making their "projected" rotations with what we have now, I will go with....
That would put Matusz, Tillman, and probably Bergy in AAA. It puts Simon in the bullpen. It puts Wada and Hunter battling for a bullpen spot or AAA. Wouldn't be surprised to see Wada, Hunter, Simon, or Eveland in that last spot but I don't see how Guthrie, Arrieta, Britton, or Chen miss the rotation if they all are on the team.

This is nice to see. I like that Matusz isn't a sure bet to make the rotation. Never really was high on Tillman, I don't expect much from him at all.

Wada and Chen will be in the initial starting rotation.
I believe other than Britton, any starter with an option will start in the minors.

Is our 40-man maxed out? Will this signing require a DFA? If so, who do you think goes? Bell? Vandenhurk?

I still think Simon deserves a rotation spot. I loved what he did last year in the rotation, but it looks like he may need to start out in the bullpen.

The deal w Chen, 26, is believed to be a 3year deal -- tho possible that 3rd year kicks in as a vesting option.

Assuming no trades, I think you're looking at Guthrie, Britton, Chen in the rotation for sure, with Wada given a spot unless he looks totally awful in ST.
I would like to see Arrieta given that 5th spot, but I guess it will depend on his health.
