Charles the Cat (@CharlsMeow) reported that the Cubs have checked in with Oakland regarding RHP Blake Treinen.
It seems that the Cubs are trying to get an early jump in the relief market before the deadline.
Treinen is 4-1 with a 1.03 ERA so far in 2018. He’s struck out 43 in 35 innings pitched.
If the Cubs somehow acquire Treinen, then they’ll have a stacked bullpen. Much like 2016.
