Cubs' Shocking Roster Shake-Up! Bullpen Boost and Surprising Cut 

By: Nitin Singh

Chicago Cubs fortify bullpen acquiring Yency Almonte and signing Hector Neris in strategic offseason moves. 

Front office aims to address bullpen depth issues that led to player fatigue in the previous season. 

Michael Rucker, a promising reliever, designated for assignment to make room for new additions. 

Rucker, originally an 11th-round pick, showcased versatility in starting and relieving roles in the minors. 

Despite Rucker's career-best stats in 2022, challenges persisted, leading to a rise in his ERA during the 2023 season. 

The 29-year-old Rucker may still contribute to the Cubs' bullpen in 2024 if unclaimed by other teams. 

Roster adjustments highlight the Cubs' commitment to shaping a competitive lineup for the upcoming season. 

Balancing acquisitions and tough decisions, the Cubs aim to create a resilient bullpen for a successful 2024 campaign.
