The Rundown: Cubs Acquire Intriguing Reliever, Castellanos Last Man Standing, Jeter and Walker Get Call to Hall

Now that Marcell Ozuna has signed with the Braves, Nick Castellanos is the last man standing from the group of major free agents. I would have thought Castellanos would have a deal with someone early, given that his market seemed much more robust in November than it does now. Some are theorizing that the outfielder is holding out for an opportunity to return to the Cubs if/when Theo Epstein can move some salary.

I find it hard to believe the Cubs would still consider the bat-first right fielder, which doesn’t make a whole lot of sense given the team’s financial state.
