Hoyer: Cubs monitoring pitchers before trade deadline

by - Senior Editor -

The Cubs have lost 8 out of their last 12 games so Cubs fans and media pundits are conjuring up possible adjustments that could be made to the current roster before the trade deadline.

“We’ll keep evaluating where we are and what we need,” general manager Jed Hoyer said via csnchicago.com. “As far as the starting-pitching market, there are a lot of things that are going to happen. Teams are going to fall out of contention. Teams are going to get into contention. So I don’t think it’s quite the time yet where that’s crystallized at all.

“But obviously we’ll keep monitoring it, keep studying it," Hoyer said. "We’re aware that pitching in general is something that every team needs around the deadline. And I’m sure we’ll be in that group."
