The month of July continues to shape the upcoming trade deadline and the first week has been heavily favoring the Chicago Cubs. Chicago is in the midst of a four game winning streak but remain eight games under .500 and out of the playoff race in a super competitive NL Central. This combination implies the Cubs are still steadfast deadline sellers but its players are maximizing potential and value. Theo Epstein regimes have never been shy about making deadline deals and this one won’t be any different as the stars finally seem to be aligning for the Cubs to sell high and acquire more assets for a future core. Recent Biogenesis suspension rumors may aid sellers leading up to the deadline, especially if teams have to replace what could be vital players for the stretch run. Guys like Starlin Castro and Anthony Rizzo won’t be going anywhere, and David Dejesus’ injury probably takes him out of the running, but like Scott Feldman, here are five additional Cubs who should be on the move come July 31st.
