Cubs Rumors: Chicago meets with free agent OF Colby Rasmus, deal soon?

Former Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Colby Rasmus could end up being the next piece of the puzzle for the Chicago Cubs as they continue to retool their roster for a major run in 2015.

According to's Shi Davidi, "the Cubs recently met with Colby Rasmus, and are one of several teams to have shown interest in the centre-fielder."

Rasmus posted a less-than-stellar .225/.287/.448 slash line in 2014, but he still crushed 18 home runs while showing flashes of his previous value at a premium position. Cubs manager Joe Maddon could be the perfect guy to help Rasmus return to his 2014 form, when he hit .276/.338/.501 with 22 homers and 66 RBIs and emerged as one of the better outfielders in the game that year.

The Baltimore Orioles, who were also a part of the Melky Cabrera sweepstakes, were also named by Davidi as a potential fit for Rasmus.
