These three current members of the Chicago Cubs roster will no longer be on the team after the trade deadline.

Chicago Cubs Fans won’t be treated to October magic this year. They are expected to be one of MLB’s top sellers for the second straight season.

The Cubs began the first phase of their rebuild last summer when they traded Javier Baez, Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo and a few others. They spent their off-season adding some high-profile players to the team. Unfortunately it didn’t work out so well.

The Cubs roster should see some significant changes after the trade deadline. Notable is the absence of several key players who are traded away.

1) Willson Contreras will no longer be on the Cubs roster after the trade deadline

Unless the Cubs decide to give him the 2021 Trevor Story trade deadline treatment, Willson Contreras has no chance of being on the team after the trade deadline. You must trade him. Nothing else makes sense.

That won’t even necessarily end his time in Chicago. Contreras would still be able to make a free-hand return to the Cubs if that’s the route they’re taking behind the plate. This season they need to turn him over for some young players and then consider a free hand bye.

With the Cubs getting to this point where Contreras won’t be renewed, they’re risking too much hoping to strike a deal with him in the future. They benefit themselves and him by trading the club’s long standing backing for some future assets.

The big question with him is how many teams out there are interested in adding a catcher mid-season and all the quirks — like learning to work with an unknown pitching team — that come with that.
