Cubs Quick Hits: Bullpen Projects to be 4th Best in MLB
According to FanGraphs WAR projections, the Cubs bullpen ranks fourth behind the Dodgers, Indians, and Yankees.

The World Series champs have the trio of Pedro Strop, Hector Rondon, and Wade Davis closing games, and they’re preceded by a formidable group of Justin Grimm, Koji Uehara, Mike Montgomery, and Carl Edwards Jr. It feels good to be rich.
