Report: The Cubs Still Want To Add Sonny Gray, Despite Quintana Trade


Thursday the Cubs pulled off one of the biggest trades in Chicago sports history, acquiring the White Sox top pitcher Jose Quintana, while sending their two best prospects in OF Eloy Jimenez and SP Dylan Cease.

However, even though it seemed liked the Cubs had given up their two biggest trade pieces, news is breaking today that the Cubs are still not done in their search for pitching, and are going after the other big name at this year’s trade deadline – Sonny Gray.

After reaching out to a source, he did say the Athletics have done some extensive scouting of the Cubs farm system, and that they could be interested in a Cubs “hidden gem”. However, it is far more likely that the Athletics are interested in adding some major league talent, guys like Kyle Schwarber, the former Athletic Addison Russell, Javier Baez, Albert Almora, or the rookie sensation Ian Happ.

While the news is still fresh and breaking, there is no word on what exactly the Cubs would be parting with. It is also entirely possible that the Cubs are either trying to drive up the price for their divisional foe Milwaukee, or just trying to get another team to panic and trade for Gray before the Brewers can.
