Last night was reclamation night – which is not a bad thing! Other moves can come whenever! – as there’s another formerly-great, currently-not bat in which the Cubs have interest.

We’ve heard this connection before, as the Cubs were interested in Dominic Smith earlier this year.

Smith, 27, raked in abbreviated stints for the Mets in 2019 and 2020, but hit just .233/.298/.345/82 wRC+ the last two seasons combined, as the contact quality evaporated.
