The Chicago Cubs are likely going to need a backup catcher this offseason. It was clear that the catcher situation in 2018 simply wasn't good enough. The good news is there are plenty of veteran presences out there the team can sign to relatively cheap, one-year deals. Check out the Top 5 options the Cubs should look at.

1

Rene Rivera

He's already served as a backup catcher with the Cubs before. He could come back this offseason. Rivera isn't an offensive juggernaut by any stretch, but he is a defensive stud who could take some heat of Willson Contreras.

2

Brian McCann

McCann isn't the offensive weapon he used to be, but he's still a competent major league hitter. The big downside here would be whether or not he can bounce back from a lingering knee injury from last season. He did play in four postseason games for the Astros, so even Houston thought he still had good value.
