Cubs reportedly interested in free-agent second baseman

The Chicago Cubs have interest in free-agent second baseman Scooter Gennett according to multiple reports, including 670 The Score's Bruce Levine.
Gennett was mostly hurt last season with a severe groin injury playing in only 42 games (139 at-bats) hitting .226 with two homers and 11 RBIs.
In the two years before that, the 29-year old was impressive batting .303 with 50 homers with a 124 wRC+.
For his career, he is a .286 hitter with 87 homers, 360 RBIs, and a .327 on-base percentage.
Since he is still on the market this late into the offseason, the Cubs might be able to sign him to a minor-league deal, which would make sense to see if he can battle back fully and resemble his former All-Star self.
However, the only veteran on that list is Descalso and who knows what will happen with him in the future.
