The Royals have stated they will only trade Merrifield if they receive some MLB ready players, and some top minor leaguers. I propose the Cubs trade Happ, Bote, and either Ethan Hearn or Ronnier Quentiro (any cathers not named Conteras, Caratini or Amaya) and either a pitcher like Oscar De La Cruz or James Norwood. The Royals get 2 MLB players, a excellent minor league catcher which they need, and a potential relief pitcher.

The other trade I suggest is the Cubs trade Chatwood and attach Decalso to him for a mid-level minor league player. The purpose of this trade is to dump salary. A team like Minnesota, or the Angels might be interested. There is no point for the Cubs to hang onto Chatwood this year, if he is bad they are done with him, if he is good they cannot afford to resign him. Better to give one of the you ng pitchers whether Azolay, Mills, Rea or whoever experience since they will be around long term. Decalso is just a waste of a roster spot and the Cubs should have never signed him, he never could hit. By not asking for a big return one of the teams that needs a starter may take Chatwood since is 13 mil salary is not that high. Granted Decalso is a waste, but they are not surrendering any decent prospects.

The Royals likely want guys who aren't a year away from arbitration, especially for their #1 trade piece.

Frankly, I think the Cubs would have to begin a package with Amaya, Hoerner, or Ademan to get Merrifield, and it might have be a combo of two of them. And even then, I think several teams would outbid Chicago for him.
