The Winter Meetings are over but isn't stopping the Cubs from going after some needs for their ballclub this offseason.

It isn't Bryce Harper news but MLB insider Ken Rosenthal is reporting that the Cubs are in "strong pursuit" of super utility infielder Daniel Descalso.

In 2018, Descalso batted .238 with 13 homers, 57 RBIs, and an on-base percentage of .353 with the Arizona Diamondbacks. He also had a 15.1% walk rate and 43.1% hard-contact hitter.

The Cubs are looking for another infielder after they traded away fan favorite Tommy La Stella and the uncertain future moving forward with suspended shortstop Addison Russell.

The Cardinals are another team that has a solid interest in the 32-year old.
