A roster shakeup might be on the horizon for the Chicago Cubs but there are a few names you're going to see again in 2019.

1

Tyler Chatwood

Tyler Chatwood was basically relegated to never pitching again this season. He's under contract for a few more years and has almost no trade value at this point. Look for the Cubs to try and seize on when he had some good starts and hit the reset button for 2019.

2

Steve Cishek

Steve Cishek was one of the most reliable Chicago Cubs relievers in 2018. To the point where he was probably overused. He's under contract in 2019 and there's no reason to think he won't be brought back.

3

Jesse Chavez

The Cubs would not have made the playoffs if not for Jesse Chavez. He stepped up when the bullpen was riddle with injuries. He's a free agent technically, but he's on record as having told Cubs teammates that he wants to pitch in Chicago or retire in 2019.
