WISCH LIST: Trade winds still could blow for Cubs in 2017

Chicago hopes Quintana, acquired from the White Sox in a blockbuster trade Thursday, can aid an aging rotation, but first it will turn to Mike Montgomery (1-6, 3.75) against the O's. "Our prospects at this moment in time are more valuable to the White Sox than us". And if by month's end the Cubs can't show that they still have that potential, the smart organizational move would be to be to trade the impending free agents Wade Davis and Jake Arrieta for valuable assets that can either help the team in 2018 or be flipped as trading chips to get more pitching.

So that's good for us.

It seemed like Quintana had been having trouble since being named the "ace" of a young White Sox team, and although he has had some nice stretches in that span it's no question that he performed better behind the arm of Chris Sale.

"It's one that allows us to continue to add to the prospect base that we've accumulated in a potentially high impact way".

The deal between Chicago teams is the 15th in the teams' history and first since 2006, when the White Sox sent left-handed reliever Neal Cotts to the North Side.

Chicago White Sox prospect Eloy Jimenez. In 42 games with Myrtle Beach, he hit.271 with eight homers and 32 RBIs, with 23 runs scored.

In 2001, the New York Mets traded two-time All-Star and six-time gold glove victor Robin Ventura, of grand-slam single fame, to the New York Yankees for former Rookie of the Year and three-time All-Star David Justice. A power-hitting outfielder who projects as a middle-of-the-order type bat. What do you think it would take for them to get him? "I know we are still in the process of trying to accumulate as much talent as possible". So overall, the defense should improve behind Quintana which means he should approach his FIP numbers (4.01) and have a better chance of adding some wins for the first time in his career (50-54).

The White Sox didn't budge on asking for a hefty package of players for Quintana, and they had their demands met by the reigning World Champions.

Cease has been a dominant pitcher since making his minor league debut, and though most of his work has come as a starter he is only averaging about 3.1 innings pitched per outing.

Several more mainstays - including closer David Robertson and third baseman Todd Frazier - have had their names tossed out as possibly being on the move. We make sure we have multiple looks and a high level of comfort with anyone before we put any specific proposals out there.

The 21-year old Cease was a sixth-round pick by the Cubs in the 2014 MLB Draft, and received a far over-slot bonus of $1.5 million. "We are buying into this process, and you know (there are) going to be a few situations".
