Latest trade deadline talk with Cubs

by - Senior Editor -

Unless the Chicago Cubs get on a hot streak, they will likely be sellers, not buyers, at the MLB trade deadline.

MLB analyst Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that the Cubs are "preparing" for possible trades, including several key veterans.

"The Cubs are telling teams till remain undecided whether they will be sellers at the trade deadline, but are preparing for a potential sale, with Bellinger, Jameson Taillon and Nico Hoerner expected to draw interest," Nightengale wrote. "It's hard to believe how things went south on the Northside after their 17-9 start."

The Cubs won on Sunday, taking the series against the Los Angeles Angels, but they remain 10.5 games back in the National League Central.
